On the night before Holi Dhulendi (playing with colors), people light fire with old things, sticks, branches and leaves and this symbolizes the victory of the good over evil. In most regions, it is known as Holika Dahan. Some people do perform Holika Dahan after consulting the Panchang (Hindu Almanac) – to find the auspicious time to perform the Dahan.
Usually, Holika Dahan is performed at night on the day before play with colors known as Dhuleti or Dhulandi.
