Mehandi mere jo dilo mein rang bhar jate hai,
Mehandi mere jo Krishna Radha aur phir Krishana Rukmani ke rishte ko darshate hai,
Mehandi mere jo mere sayain mere hone wale patidev ke naam ko motiyoon se sajate hai,
Mehandi mere jo dilo mein rang bhar jate hai.

Mehndi forms an integral part of festivals in India. It is an important aspect of Solah Shringar. The application of henna on hands and feet during special occasions such as Karva Chauth is as old as the festival itself. Married women celebrate Karva Chauth for the longevity and the good health of their husbands. Women fast for an entire day and eat only after seeing the moon and offering prayers at night.
There are many mythological stories and legends associated with this festival. One says that princess Veeravati had to fast for sevenÂ Karva ChauthsÂ to get her husband back, when she unknowingly broke her fast before the appropriate time. Other legends relate to theÂ MahabrathaÂ whereÂ DraupadiÂ would hold a fast after marriage for the well-being of theÂ PandavasÂ while some relate toÂ SavitriÂ who fasted to get her husband back from the clutches ofÂ Yama.
The rituals for this festival begin a day before the actual festival. The mother-in-law is supposed to present her daughter-in-law with â€˜sargiâ€™. The â€˜sargiâ€™ consists ofÂ mehndi, sindoor (vermillion),Â bindi, red ribbon, coconut,Â saviya, sweets, almonds, etc.Â MehndiÂ forms a very important part of the rituals ofÂ Karva Chauth.Â It is considered auspicious for married women to applyÂ mehndiÂ to their hands and feet on this occasion.
Karva ChauthÂ mehndiÂ designs for a newlywed bride for her firstÂ Karva ChauthÂ andÂ consists of all the things that are related to the festival. The designs are made with the items that are used in puja during this festival. They include theÂ channiÂ (sieve),Â kalashÂ (brass pot)Â and flowers. Sometimes, the designs also consist of the image of a woman looking at the moon through herÂ channi.Â Â MehndiÂ thus completes the rituals of this festival.

Mehndi is one of my fav things. When ever I feel low or sad my hubby takes me to the mehndi wala. When ever I see mehndi…the smell makes me feelÂ refreshed and good. My favourite was my bridal mehndi- it was so deep in colour.
Mehndi or henna has been used for centuries by women to ornament their hands and legs on different occasions. Mehndi has been applied not only in India but also in Pakistan, Africa and the Middle Eastern countries for centuries now. Ancient pieces of art and scripture are proof that women, for many centuries have been applying mehndi to theirÂ hands and feet to adorn them.
Since all these countries have such starkly different cultures, it is a given that the art ofÂ mehndiÂ practiced in each of these differs to a great extent. The designs that are created differ from country to country. Each has a signature style that defines it.Â ArabicÂ mehndiÂ is one of the many types ofÂ mehndiÂ that is famous not only in the Middle Eastern countries but also in the rest of the world.
ArabicÂ mehndiÂ consists of designs that are very distinctive. These designs were created by the Arabs and thus they got their title. Today, it is one of the most popular types ofÂ mehndi, even in India.
ArabicÂ mehndiÂ is traditionally more flowing in nature. It consists of designs created with leaves, petals, flowers and vines. ArabicÂ mehndiÂ designs often donâ€™t cover the entire palm. They start from the fingertip and follow a trail onto the palm and wrist. The designs created for this type ofÂ mehndiÂ are bold.
Artists often mix Arabic designs with Indian designs to create beautiful motifs. These motifs consist of thick lines and curves, so that it leaves a dark color once it dries. The design is also shaded to give it a more beautiful effect.

Mere husband ne hamari shadi me, mere hathon se mehandi lagwayi..
Wo pal mere liye bahot memorable tha.
There is a very strong relation between me and mehandi …. In our relation I always spend all myÂ time to make mehandi to all.. I love to make mehandi forÂ all and to me also .. I love the fragrance of mehandi more than my life…
Mehendi reminds me of HAPPINESS….
It always give me inner peace. i started doing mehendi by my own since i was child. Its my art, my identity, meri pehchan.
Tutke daal se haaton pe bikhar jati hai
Ye to mehendi hai mehendi to rang lati hai…!
Mehendi and me have a different connection altogether, I started learning how to apply mehendi because my cousin sister has bullyed me telling that I can never learn the art of mehendi…! Today I proudly tell i apply mehendi to brides which is like the best possible way to showcase my talent…! Concentration nd uniqueness is most required for a best mehendi design!
I would conclude it by a phrase “Apne is ras rang se duniya ko mehkana hai… kaam mehendi ka to gairon k kaam ana hai”.
Mehandi is my art and it helped me in my difficult times.
I became a mehandi designer and fullfilled all my wishes.
