Mehendi, a common shrub is known to have been in use in all parts of the world since time immemorial. The traditional way of painting hand and feet with mehendi is still popular especially among brides.
Decorating the bride's hand and feet with the application of henna or mehendi is symbolic of the auspicious occasion.
Mehendi being my creative outlet, I design only for close friends and family. However, people who knew me, recognized my talent and encouraged me to participate in a Mehendi Competition, organized by the Stree Mandal (Woman's Club of Sikkanagar). I won the First Prize and with all the publicity came requests for teaching others my skills with Mehendi designing. I started Mehendi Classes and there has been no looking back from that point on.
Equipped with an award for Professional Excellence that was bestowed upon me in 1994, by the Stree Mandal.
