Hi all,

anyone out there watch Bollywood films? Well, if you watch Mujhe Kuch
Kehna Hai, you'll see Kareena Kapoor (who plays an Indo-American
travelling in India) being "introduced" to the festival of Teej (an
event in mid-summer that ostensibly celebrates the arrival of the
monsoon rains). She is told that, for the festival, women "wear
bangles" and "put henna on their hands." The movie doesn't explore
this in detail... it's just a dash of culture into what is a fairly
typical Bollywood love story. But there is a lingering shot of
several hennaed hands. When the camera pans, you can see the cone
being used to apply the henna. And whaddya know... it looked like
mylar with holographic patterns to me. ;)
