Part 7 of our Festive Beauty Series shares some exclusive trivia for your festive yet traditional look and how to choose the right products to keep your skin & hair unharmed.
Alta & Sindoor—Origin & Relevance
Believe it or not, the tradition of wearing sindoor is as old as time. Its traces were found in history even 5000 years back. In the Northern parts of India, where Harappan civilisation thrived, more than one female figurine has been found with painted parting. Aryans used to apply their blood on their brides to seal the wedlock, signifying strength.
In fact, the word ‘sindoor’ originates from ‘sindoora’, a Sanskrit word that means red lead. Ancient sacred texts, like the Vedas talk about Chakras located in our body. The Third Eye or the Ajna Chakra at the centre of the head is said to be associated with concentration & desire. Believers are of the opinion, placing sindoor exactly in this area can channelise a woman’s energy towards her husband and contribute to her emotional regulation.
Sindoor also has a medicinal connection, Ayurveda to be specific, that was thought to have medicinal benefits for women, including blood flow stimulation, easing stress & anxiety, activating sex drive etc.
On the other hand, alta is a significant part of wedding & post-wedding ceremonies. This red dye is considered sacred for similar events. And not just for celebrations, Alta is an integral part of the South Indian culture, especially during the public performances of its classical dance forms, like Bharatnatyam, Odissi, Kuchipudi, Mohiniattyam, etc. Other Indian classical dance forms, such as Kathak and Manipuri also include wearing of Alta on the dancers’ feet and fingertips to enhance stage appeal.
Both of these items are a part of ‘Solah Shringar’ or 16 adornments for a Hindu bride.
Why You Must Choose Aromatic Alta & Sindoor over Others?
