MEHENDI LAGA KE RAKHNA, NOW WITH EXTRA PRECAUTIONS!
With wedding celebrations resuming in the region, albeit low-key, it is once again a happy time for vendors, including mehendi-walas, who are hopeful to get their business back on track with precautions in place.
Capital-based mehendi artist, Raju, talks of measures he has taken to provide a safe experience to his clients. “During June, we had at least 25-30 mehendi bookings from Delhi to Bulandshahr to Vrindavan. We follow stringent safety measures, right from regular temperature checks for our team to sanitising the clothes. Gloves and masks are mandatory,” he says, while admitting that applying henna while wearing gloves is a cumbersome process, so one is taken off during the application.
For Gurugram-based mehendi artist Rashi Aggarwal, who travels globally for work, location has become all the more important now. “We are trying to avoid highrisk areas. So the date, venue and the city play a major role. Sanitisers and masks will definitely be there, but we need to ensure lesser crowd around us,” she says.
Brides are also taking all necessary safety measures. “My family decided to get PPE kits for the artists for relatives to have a safe and fuss-free experience,” says Delhi-based entrepreneur
