It’s that time of the year when married women (and girls) in India apply henna on their hands and feet. It is not just auspicious but also an essential ornament for beautifying married women on the occasion of Karwachauth
I am sure many of my friends and family members all over the world, have already got henna applied on their hands and /or feet for the upcoming Karwachauth on Wednesday and many have this on their ‘to do’ list for tomorrow.
I am, myself, very fond of this tradition and love the intricate curls, lattices, curves and floral designs on my hand and can’t wait each year for it. And of course, like many of you, I also anxiously wait for it to dry and to see how dark the colour gets. Not just that, I even use numerous tips and tricks for getting a darker henna.
