Bind(i) the fusion

Hi there homo-sapiens, 

Yes, I've been meaning to post on the blog for a while now but everytime something comes up. Whether its college work, headaches or what not. Sometimes I wonder there will come a time again where I'll just go into hibernation, but of course I won't let that happen now because I've grown extremely attached to this world, to my website and its literally a part of me. 

Can you believe how cool it is when people recognize me through the blog in college? Oh and how you all write such adorable mails to me? Makes me go awwww okay? So keep doing so, and bring that smile on my face. You people are the awesomest. 

Today, I will talk to you about the bindi. The bindi is considered a decoration, it is usually worn on the forehead in South Asian regions. We all have heard of the variety of myths that surround the bindi. There are somethings however you didn't know about bindis and why they're worn. 

While it is also called the third eye in some cases, it is also worn to enhance concentration which is found in the centre, that is between the eyebrows. Not to forget basically beautifying a person. In the Vedic times it was considered a symbol of intellect, did you know? Ultimately wearing a bindi was considered divine and things like that. 

I've always been a fan of bindis from school days, would wear them on and off. And in Junior College when we had traditional attire as our dres code, definitely wore a bindi many times to go with the kurtas and patialas. In University now we don't have a dress code but of course I missed my bindi, so one fine day it waved to me from the box and I instantly picked it up and wore it. 

As soon as I did, Mom literally gave me the weirdest look and said: 'You are going to college like this?' and I happily nodded and zoomed off. In college too, everyone was stunned and flabbergasted. But I'd worn the bindi many times before, why the stares and shocks you might ask? 

I won't tell you that, I'd let you see for yourself. 

Ah! There goes, now you sure know why everyone looked at me? Yes, I wore red jeans, crop top, tank and a bindi. Also the fact that I went all bun (konde) with the bindi added to the Indian-ness and Western mix. I like experimenting and no one shall stop me. One fine day I wake up and feel like wearing a certain something, I will. 

So that's how this outfit came about and after my explanation, everyone nodded in unison.

Crop top: Chemistry
Jeans: Jean boutique in Bangalore
Scarf: Don't remember
