Remember this yesteryear’s Bollywood song “Mehndi LagakeRakhna, Doli Sajak keRakhnaa…”? It roughly translates to “Put your Mehendi on, decorate your Palanquin, as your Prince is on his way to take you away with him”! The emphasis is more on the Mehendi, as it is the first step to kickstarting a traditional wedding celebration. There are also beliefs that the more pigmented your Mehendi design is, the better your married life is going to be! Whether they are mere tell-tales or facts, applying even a simple Mehandi design offers numerous health benefits, apart from making our hands look pretty!
