India is one of the most densely populated countries of Asia and it is perhaps the largest country to use Mehndi. When it comes to the inception of Mehndi culture in India, historians have different opinions. Some historians say that the creative art of Mehndi application was introduced by Mughals while others believe that the history of Mehndi culture in India dates back to almost 5000 years.
Mehndi is prepared from the leaves of Henna plant. The leaves are crushed into fine powder and then water is added to it to create a consistent paste. This paste thereafter is used to draw different tattoos on different parts of the body like hands, feet., wrist and arms etc.
In the past times, men also used to accentuate their body parts with mehndi on their nuptials but this tradition has now been abandoned and only brides put on mehndi to enhance their bridal look and make themselves more eye-catching and mesmerizing for the groom.
