Simple Mehndi Designs!
Mehndi! What can I say about this?? Let’s just say it that simple thing that enhances the beauty of your hands. Most of nowadays feel that it is so old school. Well I say, old school maybe yes, but nothing has been introduced to date that can beautify your hands like this.
This extraordinary culture has just been limited to weddings and festivities. We do not find people embracing this culture so often at present. We recently spotted our celeb brides wearing mehndi during their marriage ceremony.
On that note, people feel that mehndi culture is most popular in south-east Asian countries namely- India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. But not many people are familiar with the fact that this art has gained immense popularity in the Arabic countries as well as The Middle East.
