Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

The detail shows beautifully in this image. Does the Indian groom find this attractive?

24 Mar 2015 12:44am

@Judy aka L@dybug: Yes Judy..In fact.. this is not just a bridal decoration alone. Many of the homes have this plant - Henna Plant - and we grind the leaves( these are paste in plastic cone...products from market used widely today to decorate palms) , make fresh paste and apply..I have posted a picture of the palm with freshly ground paste applied..this would have lovely orange/red colour unlike the brownish one here. The paste from the fresh leaves cool our body too. I apply this once every month :)))) I simply love this :)

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

Thank you for your detailed reply, Devi. I am not a lover of tattoos and initially, saw this as that type of 'decoration' but understanding that it also has a cooling effect for the body gives it another purpose.

3 Apr 2015 11:49am

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thank you Judy..I dislike too, permanent tattoos. We have tattoos too here...something like being branded !!!!
