Aalta or Mahawar or Rose Bengal is a red dye which women in India (specially Rajput, Bengali and Oriya women in Eastern India) or Bangladesh apply with cotton on the border of their feet during marriages and religious festivals. During Durga Puja many Bengali women put Aalta on their feet.
In certain areas of India, there is a tradition that after the wedding ceremony, when the bride enters her in-laws house for the first time, she steps in a plate of Aalta before crossing the threshold with her right foot, leaving red footsteps behind her.
Aalta was originally produced from lac though later it was replaced with synthetic dyes.
