Mehndi Shayari

The green leaves of menhdi bring lovely shades of the red on the beloved’s palm and body. Naturally, they have become the theme of poetry which appropriates love and its celebration. Menhdi, as such, is pleasant in appearance and has an aroma of its own which makes it a subject for Urdu poets to dwell upon.
