But his son was an exceptional. Hiranyakashipu summoned her sister to sit in the fire with Prahlad in her lap. She was blessed with a charm that prevented her from getting burned as she entered into fire. But both the brother and sister dup had forgotten the fact that she could save herself only if she was alone. As a consequence Holika was burnt to death and Prahlad was saved as he was chanting the name of Lord Vishnu.
