  Mehendi Mania  
  BY THE WEEK BUREAU  
 
The month of Shrawan (July-August) has arrived! The ladies’ wrists are adorned with vibrant green bangles. Lord Shiva is being worshipped with gusto, and many have decided to go veggie for this one special month. But none of this revelry is complete without the reddish hue and attractive patterns of Mehendi.
Mehendi, or henna, signifies auspiciousness, good fortune and sensuality. It is one of the oldest methods of skin adornments mentioned in the earliest Hindu Vedic ritual books. Mehendi is considered to be an integral part of wedding ceremonies to ward off evils and spread good vibes.

“Nowadays, women of all age groups have fallen to the charms of mehendi,” says Haseena Pradhan of Sipi Beauty Parlor. “Some like heavy patterns while others go for something simpler. But there’s hardly a female on the street these days whose palms aren’t colored.”
