It’s the time of the year when the festive season has begun, and women are busy preparing for one festival or the other. Mehendi or gorintaku is very much a part of the festivities as women and girls love to apply gorintaku to mark the festive season. To cater to such people, Saraswathi Raju and her family have come up with the idea of supplying gorintaku or Mehendi leaves online.
Just like vegetables, fruits, and groceries, one can now order gorintaku online. When Saraswati Raju and her husband Bhaskara Raju bought their farmland in Shameerpet some eight years ago, they started cultivating organic vegetables and fruits. When they realized how many people were having problems getting fresh gorintaku leaves, they decided to grow the trees on their farm.
So, for the past three to four years, the couple has been selling gorintaku just like they sell their fruits and vegetables online. One bunch of gorintaku costs Rs 100, and the couple share that it is sufficient for both hands and legs.
Saraswati Raju says they have regular customers around their house for fruits, vegetables, and gorintaku. Otherwise, people can book it online. However, as the leaves need to be used within a day or two, customers from Hyderabad are usually asked to collect them directly. One can also pre-book seasonal fruits and vegetables, says Saraswati Raju. They can be reached at – 9866055333.
