Nice work, Lauren. Ain't cones grand? I love your straight, parallel
lines around "Mehandi". I've found that it's easy to do those lines
with a cone but it's also easy to want to "power through" them,
whereupon they start getting crooked... but not yours. Yours look
great.

Well-executed nagari, too. It's funny... when it's written out that
way, that hindi word clearly reads "mehandi" because there are three
distinct syllables (three consonants, M H and D). Yet it's also easy
to see how it turns into "mehndi" in speech because the middle
syllable gets swallowed a bit thanks to the nasal sound that follows
the H.
