Bangles by drsridhar

Bangles

Although Bangles are worn for style all over the world,the ornament hold special significance in Hinduism.It is almost similar to the 'Wedding Ring" in the Western Culture.For Hindu Women Bangles are of Sentimental value,symbol of good luck.
A Hindu Woman is deemed incomplete without this,so much so even the poorest of the poor wear some form of Bangles.Thus Bangle Industry is making a kill with Designer Wear etc.If bangle breaks it is considered as bad omen.Hindu Festival is incomplete without women wearing the bangles.The only time married women remove bangle is either at labor or when she is widowed.
Brilliant and vibrant colours, lovely.
