This is Gita’s hand (my landlady). Last week was some sort of occasion where women get henna on their left hand and put a ring on their ring finger. This is, supposedly, to ensure that one will not see ghosts for a year. Gita made designs for herself, me and her daughter. I learned that after the henna dries (and before it is taken off), you should dab lemon on the pattern to make it stay longer.
