Mehndi! What can I say about this? Let’s say it as something simple that enhances the beauty of your hands. Most of these days feel like it’s so old school. Well, I mean, old school may be, but nothing has come up to date that can embellish your hands like this.
This extraordinary culture has just been limited to weddings and festivities. We do not find people who embrace this culture so often today. We recently saw our famous girlfriends with mehndi during their marriage ceremony.
In that sense, people feel that mehndi culture is more popular in Southeast Asian countries, namely India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. But not many people are familiar with the fact that this art has gained immense popularity in Arab countries, as well as in the Middle East.
Mehndi is originally derived from the Sanskrit word “Mendhika”, which means the henna plant itself. Mehendi is used by women around the world to decorate their hands and legs. With the wedding season on, Mehndi is a very popular art this season. Mehendi also has much significant relevance in the Hindu religion. It is considered an integral part of the” solaah sringar ” of brides.
