Why women in India love to wear Jasmine flowers in their hair.
i was talking to day with a friend about this.
the fragrance is fresh and sweet. And i must say i love to see those white flowers in the dark hair of the always gracefull Indian women
I checked on Wikipedia.
Jasmine Flower sellers selling ready garlands, or bunches in case of the thicker variety (Motiyaa or Mogaraa, of Jasmine (and also flowers by weight) is a common site seen in most city streets, around entrances to Temples, and major business areas including bus stands, in many parts of India, majorly so beginning with Mumbai and generally from Maharashtra onwards in all of south India. In Kolkata too it is not a totally unfamiliar sight, though in north women and girls generally by tradition do not wear flowers in hair so the sales on roads are fewer.
It seems different from area..to area
But the cutest answer i got was… Well they smell nice for their Husband.
