Mehndi

This is a very popular form of art and craft prevalent among women. Also known as henna, mehndi designs on the palms and feet is symbolic of good luck, artistic taste and religious attitude. There is hardly a function or festival in Rajasthan or for that matter India when women do not apply mehndi on their palms to make themselves more beautiful. A sticky paste is made by mixing a little water with the aid of a match-stick. A fantasy of delightful patterns are thus created, which when dried, leave rich red designs printed on the skin.

The Rajasthani Mehendi is considered to be one of the best because it leaves the darkest color of red on hands and feet. For this reason only, the henna of Rajasthan, India is very much in demand for the bridal mehndi also.
In Rajasthan, Mehendi is put up on almost each and every occasion, in a different design, as it is considered very auspicious. One of the most popular designs in Rajasthan is the one called chowk. Literally meaning a courtyard, it is put up in various forms, each form being suitable for a different occasion. One design is applied at the time of the Gangaur fair, another at the time of Teej, yet another for Holi and so on. Other popular designs are chopper (game of dice, symbolic of marital love), lahriya (waves), pankhi or beejani (meaning fan), etc.
Mehndi has a special role during Karva Chauth, celebrated in Rajasthan in the month of October. On this occasion, women take the day off, apply mehndi, dress in their wedding clothes and fast for the well-being of their husbands until they see the moon at night. Although the art is used primarily for decoration today, the use of mehndi is expressive of a distinct culture and bond that is created between women on such occasions. Different emotions and characteristics of their lives can be seen in the art work and the designs themselves reveal many sublime aspects of womens culture.
Amongst other favorites are chopper, representation of a game which is played by throwing dice and is symbolic of conjugal love; pankhi or beejani meaning a hand-fan, a typical design for the summers; and, lahriya meaning a wave or a ripple, the most popular pattern in the rainy season.
