Sindoor is an essential part of the wed life. Basically the vermilion constitutes of Turmeric and limestone. According to the Indian culture, once a woman gets married she has to apply Vermilion that is Sindoor or Kumkum. It is the basic symbol of the wedlock and the major element of the ‘solah sringar’. Wiping of Vermilion is considered inauspicious and symbolises a widow. The origin of Sindoor is from the times of great epic Ramayana, Sita ji used to put it for the long life of her husband Lord Rama. Some holy scripts say that Parvati ji also applied it before she went in front of her husband Lord Shiva. The other epic Mahabharata too mentions Vermilion, when Draupati got insulted she wiped her sindoor to express her outrage.
