Question
Hello,
I was wondering if you could help me. I'm looking into the cultural significance of the bindi and whether girls should wear them if they are not Hindu? I hope you can help me.
Thank you,
Abi Watt

Answer
Dear Abi

I appreciate your interest.

Besides religious/cultural significance, Bindi adds to the beauty, homeliness and being humble of a women of any age. Depending on age, taste, dress, and all other concern, you can have a matching or contrast bindi of different size, color, design, texture, material, etc. So go ahead and add to your lifestyle.

cheers
