Chapter 4 | The Magical Mehndi

And on the white palace terraces, as the sun began to set, the mehndiwalas from Ahmedabad began to cast their spell. To the song of Rajasthani folk singers, they decorated the bride, with garlands and dolis and elephants, and set the groom a test – to find his name (written in Japanese, would you believe) on the hand of his betrothed.

And soon the guests were also caught up in the mood. They sang a song, and danced along and had some vodka golguppas too.
