The famous bargain of yore on Mumbai trains - I am referring to the sticker bindi.
I always favoured small, black and round ones (only with Indian outfits) . For a while, in college, I tried a large coloured one ( depending on the outfit) with a smaller black one on it
Then I went through a phase when I felt that bindis were really not cool and avoided them. (!)
Now I have reverted to small , black and round ones ( only with Indian outfits anyway because that is all I wear, given my girth)
I have sometimes wanted to wear a large round maroon one with a crisp cotton sari but chickened out . And I never could carry off the fancy variety.
Kumkum, kungumam, sindoor, tilak, tikka, tikli, chaandu, pottu, bottu, bindi, bindiya....know any other terms for it?
Here is some on the significance of sindoor.
