Bindis or kumkum as they are also referred to are a fashion deeply embedded in the Indian roots and I love it when this trend goes global and the likes of Pussycat Dolls and Julia Roberts decide to wear bindis in their videos and red carpet events respectively :) National pride, you see :)

My Uni has a concept of a day dedicated solely to honouring all the ethnicities of its students and thats when we all go, all out to dress ethnic ;) The campus is a blur of colors and bling and I can feel the enthusiasm in the air every year. This year's ethnic day which was today was no different. Me and best friend wore kurta and pajami(more about those, later) and only on reaching campus did we decide that we weren't 'ethnic' enough. So we came up with our own easy-to-make and no-fuss version of the bindi.
