What is the difference between Aalata and Mehndi?
Aalata is explained in the Hindu Upanishads. It is considered a part of Solaha Shringar in Hinduism. It is also said that Lord Krishna used to put salt at the feet of his beloved Radha. From there this practice started and now this practice has taken the form of fashion. Although there was a trend in India to apply Alata in the feet and hands, but when the Muslim rulers ruled the country, they came to India with Henna (Mehndi) and applying Mehndi became a trend. However, with the arrival of Hina, the craze of applying Alata did not diminish among women. Even today, on the occasion of festivals, women always put their feet on their feet.
