Is there any girl out here who has not applied Mehndi in her hands at least once? I don’t think there will be any 😉 . I being a big Mehndi fan don’t miss any chance where i can get Mehndi done in my hands 😀 😀
Mehndi is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Mendhika’.Mehndi is a paste of herb which is bought in a cone shaped tube with a small opening in the edge so that narrow design can be drawn with perfection. This is the modern story of mehndi. In olden days the mehndi paste is made by grinding mehndi leaves with oil into a fine paste and then applied on the hands and feets of girls. But now you easily get ready made mehndi cone in the market. Mehendi is applied during weddings and during festivals like Karva Chauth, Diwali, Bhaidooj,Teej, Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha.
Take a look at some beautiful mehndi designs.
Indian weddings are incomplete without Mehndi, in fact there is a separate function called ‘Mehndi’ where mehndi is applied on bride’s hands and feets and on all the women present in the mehndi function. This function usually happens a day before the wedding. The mehendi function is of great importance among Muslim community and some of the north Indian weddings, but now a days almost every wedding in India follows the mehendi function which brings fun and glory to the entire wedding.
