There is a prominent legend linked with the Holi celebration. Once in childhood, Lord Krishna asked her mother Yashoda why he had a dark complexion and Radha; his love is fair. He asked for a solution to his problem from Maiya Yashoda. Then, Yashoda Maa asked Krishna to play Holi with his consort Radha. By putting colour on her face, he can make her of any colour of his wish. Then, Lord Krishna followed her orders and coloured Radha.
