When Krishna was a young boy, he asked to his mother the reason for his dark color while his beloved Radha was so fair.
Yashoda playfully suggested that he should smear color on Radha’s face too and change her complexion to any color he wanted.
Captivated by the idea, Krishna proceeded to do so and thus, introduced the play of colors on Holi.
