I am not a big fan of what is called rabic style henna designs and I
think you are right, these are mumbai style. Just a general bit of
advice about styles, I think the best way to master a style is to
practice. Duh! I know, but you can practice in other ways that just
doing henna. Look at a lot of book in that style and also redraw
motifs and entire designs in the style. Drawing and redrawing trains
your mind and eye to understand the patterns, to be able to repeat
them, mix them up and create new ones.

I have done this some with navneet style designs and it has helped a
lot, though I still feel I need more work with it to really master it.

Good luck!
