India Hindu Festival

Hindu Indians last week observed Navrati, a nine-night Hindu festival dedicated to celebrating Shakti, the feminine form of the divine. According to Huffpost where I gathered my info:

Navratri is celebrated all over India and among the Hindu diaspora with great fanfare. Prior to the festival, skilled artisans prepare clay models of the goddess in her various manifestations. Many Hindus take part in special ceremonies, rituals, fasts and festivities.

While we love the picture and consider ourselves  in appreciation of Ms. Badu’s irreverent style, the henna design on her leg is really a highlight. Living in a little Pakistan enclave in Brooklyn, we’ve been blessed to be able to rock some pretty fierce  Mehndi designs. Check out Erykah Badu’s  video interview on the flip, a close-up of the leg design and the full interview here.
