Mehndi (also called Hina) is one of the things which is very popular among the females, specially in the region of South Asia. Girls normally apply the latest Mehndi designs throughout the year on their hands, arms and feet. But it is specially related to two occasions, which are considered incomplete without Mehndi (Mehendi) in India and Pakistan. These special occasions are Weddings and Eid days. Muslims celebrate two Eids, one Eid-ul-Fitr after the month of Ramdan on first day of Islamic month Shawal and other on 10th of Islamic Month of Zil-Hajj. These special occasions of Eid in Pakistan and India are ever complete without the Mehndi and Bangles. Whichever part of the country it may be, female hands are adorned with the lovely red hue of the Mehndi. Eid Mehndi designs or Wedding Mehndi designs are interchangeable and can be applied interchangeably at any occasion.
Beauty parlors have special Eid and Wedding Mehndi packs – these days, the girls have choice between the Pakistani / Indian Mehndi (which covers pretty much most of the palm) and the Arabic Mehndi (in which the pattern is drawn to one side of the hand). The cost of applying the Mehndi may vary from design to design, parlor to parlor and occasion to occasion.
Mehndi is associated to lots of things – a good dark design is a sign of good luck for the marital couple. It is common for the names of the bride and groom to be hidden in the Mehndi design; and the wedding night cannot commence until the groom has found the names. Some examples of popular traditional images used in mehndi designs are the peacock, which is the national bird of India, the lotus flower, and an elephant with a raised trunk, which is a symbol of good luck.
