Mehndi is an integral and important part of the Indian culture. From Bollywood to local folklore, this art of decorating body with beautiful Henna designs has inspired many lyricists and musicians. Such the beauty of Mehndi! The history of Mehndi is as old as our culture itself when locals used a paste of crushed henna leaves to color their skin as a form of a semi-permanent tattoo.

Gradually, this trend became quite popular during the Mughal period, when Mehndi was given greater prominence than ever. Intricate details reflecting nature and the then customs and traditions took centerstage in Indian weddings. Infact, it’s hard to imagine an Indian wedding, irrespective of religion or caste, without the bride and groom decorating their hands with Mehndi. The rule is that “the brighter the pigment of your mehndi, the happier your life will be”!
