“Parandi is a long bunch of threads with elaborate decorative tassels at the lower end, and are used by Punjabi women to braid their long hair. Women all over India, wear a lot of jewellery – bangles, tikka, jhumkas, necklace and nath (nose ring). But what makes an outfit typically Punjabi is the Parandi; the fancier the better, the longer the better, and often the braid is wrapped with golden gota (ribbon) to make it even more prominent.”
