Just yesterday my maids daughter came to our home wearing a 'Paranda' in her hair. I quickly grabbed my camera and took a pic of her . I thought it would be nice to show what a Paranda is. Now, a paranda is a fabric coiled into a string,and split into three so that it can be tied along with the braid.It comes in various colours and decorated with different ribbons and sequins to make it attractive. Its pretty much a rural tradition now since the women in the cities are hardly seen wearing it. But it still looks nice . And oh yeah I think I should mention that the ones that match your hair colour can be used to make your hair look longer !!!
