The Henna Artist Plot

Radha, who is 13 years old at the start of the tale, is being verbally tormented by the gossipmongers in her town, who refer to her as the «Bad Luck Girl.» Her parents had died lately, and her sister, Lakshmi, had run away from her marriage 13 years before. Radha enlists the aid of Lakshmi’s husband, Hari, in tracking down her sole living relative.

While Radha begins her hunt, Lakshmi is in high demand as a henna artist in Jaipur, the royal city. Lakshmi is a gifted healer who assists her clients with their aches and pains in addition to her henna work. She’s also skilled at creating contraceptive herbs, which she sells to her buddy Samir so that his numerous mistresses may avoid becoming pregnant.

The presence of Lakshmi’s husband and the young sister she never knew she had disrupts Lakshmi’s well-ordered existence. After she gives her husband money, he leaves to live in the slums, but Radha is a different story. Lakshmi takes her in, but she is impetuous and rebellious, and she ends up having an affair with Samir’s son.

Samir’s wife is enraged by Lakshmi’s continuous connection with him and her sister’s romance with their kid, so she launches a rumor campaign to put the henna artist out of business. To make matters even more complicated, Radha is expecting a child and wants to keep it.

Both sisters find a new beginning in Shimla, a mountain resort where Radha travels to birth to her kid. Radha agrees to let Lakshmi’s childless friend Kanta adopt her kid, while Lakshmi uses her healing abilities at the town’s Western hospital.
