Mehndi and Introduction‏

Mehndi And Introduction

Mehndi Designs for hands,
Mehndi artists in the city are earning thousands in a single day by applying beautiful “mehndi” designs on the hands of women, girls and even babies. Be it a leading beauty parlour or a roadside makeshift stall of a mehndi artist, women and girls are approaching them to get the best on their hands on the eve of Eid at any rate.
Many mehndi artists from the far-flung areas of the country have also appeared in the twin cities markets and established their stalls in front of shops for applying mehndi and their charges are also nominal as compared to those in beauty parlours.
Nazish and her two cousins come from a village of Chakwal City, with their makeshift stall in Commercial Market have agreed to pay Rs 3,000 to a shopkeeper, who has allowed them to put three chairs, a table and a banner outside his shop for a week. Nazish said, “We do not mind giving a few rupees to him (shopkeeper) as his shop is at a perfect location. If all goes well, we expect to earn Rs15000 to Rs 20,000 till Chand Raat.”
The rates of applying mehndi vary from design to design. The rates of a single vine starts from Rs50, for the full hand we are charging Rs300, while the rates are Rs600 for both hands,” Nazish informed.
Mrs Nadeem Anjum, who was present at a mehndi stall with her husband said, “The craze of decorating hands with mehndi on this occasion always remains among girls as well as women, but as the festival is approaching nearer, the mehndi artists have also increased their rates because of the great rush. However, nobody is paying heed towards this issue as it is an occasion of happiness.”
