Simple Arabic Mehandhi


I really enjoy making Mehandhi. The entire process is very satisfying – From designing the designs, trying the best to make it look as perfect, at least appealing for that matter, as possible and finally hoping that the color turns out be as dark/red as possible.

Around the age of 13years, I started to put Mehandhi – on my hands as well as on others’. Since then, I have also wished that someday someone else would put one in my hand. It had, however, remained a dream until recently.

My mother and I had gone for shopping and saw that the store was offering free Mehandhi Service as a part of Banaras Silk Festival. I was overjoyed and decided to seize the opportunity. It was a very simple and redundant design. But, I was totally excited!!


Such little joys make life, I guess J

  2. Nice. But I am not sure how women have the patience to stay with the mehandi for a few hours before washing it off. I mean, wouldn't they want to at least check FB or blog comments during that time? :P

      Or maybe, the joy of seeing the mehandhi at its darkest best is worth sacrificing a few this and that :P

  6. Simple yet very beautiful...

    I am an odd person, I like mehendi when it is still green and like to see it on others' hands rather than on my own :-) Would love to see your creations...
