A bindi is a colored dot worn on the centre of the forehead, commonly by Hindu and Jain women.
Bindi is an integral part of an Indian woman’s beautification process for centuries and has evolved as an Indian woman’s pride and importance.
Bindi was round-shaped, when originated several decades ago, with the passage of time and with people’s changing tastes, a large variety of bindis are now available to suit everyone’s need or style. Besides the simple round shaped bindis, one can also find bindis that come in several shapes of flowers, peacocks, snakes, and birds. To make the bindi look more fashionable, designers have implemented tiny stones, metal wires or have replaced the bindi with little pieces of jewelry as well.
