Born to a middle-class conservative Jain family and the youngest of 5 sisters, she wasnâ€™t allowed to pursue further studies after SSC despite achieving First Class, then. But this did not depress her as she was born to excel. So, she began doing embroidery on saris. However, Mehendi drew her attention so much that with a cone in hand and a simple desire to turn out good work, a modest 17-year old Mumbai teenager has parlayed what started out as a hobby into a thriving career 3 decades back. That is how it all started. Today, she is the most popular and leading Mehendi artist truly epitomizes the word â€˜expertiseâ€™, â€˜perfectionâ€™ and â€˜inspirationâ€™. She is none other but our very own Mehendi Queen Veena Nagda.
