During the last week in Hyderabad…we had had a big Mehendi day…We had been visiting Shilparaman that morning, an arts and crafts village where the artists come from far and wide to show and sell their masterpieces. There was this mehendi artist who offered to come home so, all of us 7 girls could get our hands decorated.
Here are some of those pictures.
They had wanted to get shapes of peacocks. Are you able to find any?There are many ways of applying the henna design to the hand. This way is called Arabic. The lines are much more thicker, lots of shading.
She got so itchy to wash it off as soon as the design was done. But, we managed to hold her from washing until the henna dried up.
After my SiL’s turn was done, we thought that we should call our MiL (the 7th girl in the house) to get her hands decorated too. But, each of us knew she would refuse and each of us predicted the way she would do it. That the betting was in place, Pavan went and invited his mom to get her hands decorated with henna..and she did as Pavan had predicted..
Brushed him off with a “Jaa re…” pouting her mouth..and raising her chin up, proud of her decision.
