But this one was a firstβ€¦πŸ‘ΈπŸΌπŸ’πŸ”¨ Went to a shop where they make silver leaf- takes 4 hours to flatten a small piece of silver by hand into silver leaf and then is sold for 4 rupee (10 cents). They use it in Indian sweets but also in auvedyic medicine, they said it is β€˜cooling’ to the body which makes sense.. Then the dude stuck it on my forehead.. Haha decorated with a rose I was given at the flower markets. πŸ™πŸΎπŸŒΉπŸ‘ŒπŸ½ #Incredibleindia #Lucknow #Oldcity #Silver
