Auspicious Accompaniments

The beetle leaf [ Vethalai], coconut covered in turmeric paste and the bananas that you see in the picture are harbingers of auspicious tidings and are part and parcel of any happy ceremony/ occasion/ pooja  in India. No ceremony or function  can begin or  is complete without them and they occupy pride of place. overriding all other expensive articles. The selective coloring technique used here to high light these items along with the gold bangles perhaps speaks more on this point.

Bride – to – be

The day of her wedding is very important to and most treasured by every bride.  She wants to look her best and spares no efforts to that end. The excitement and happiness adding that extra glow to an already radiant face. Here the bride is seen getting her make up done. The chutti placed on the forehead is the first of the many ornaments that are to adorn her hair. This has been highlighted by selective coloring to accentuate the beauty of the piece.


Beautiful capture of  an  Arabic design in Mehndi. A beautiful Mango design with intricate details tapering off towards the fore finger  is brought to the fore by the dark green color of the Mehndi. The blurring of the model’s face to enhance the Mehndi design gives a beautiful ‘bokeh’ effect.
