Bindi, meaning “Drop” in Sanskrit, is a traditional mark adorning a women’s forehead. For men, this is known as Tilak. Dismissed as a religious symbol by monotheists, this has great significance and meaning for mankind.
International Bindi Day will be celebrated on 15th October of every year to express inclusiveness, mutual respect and highlight the inherent wisdom of mankind to look beyond the religious and communal divide.
A Hindu who is proud of our roots and our great ancestors who sacrificed their precious lives for us and our dharma - must express his/her gratitude to them by being assertive of our dharma. Applying Bindi is an assertive expression so do it and display your Hindu Identity o the world.
A seat indeed but not to sit, It makes you grin but hold your grit! It might comfort you if you are fit, Beware of the dress getting entangled to split! Sikiladi
She prays in earnest for her tidings, For fate has gifted her new beginnings! She bows down to Almighty’s grace, Seeking blessings for life’s turnings! Sikiladi
Wrapped and hidden Pink edged velvety whites Waiting to explore The world within green delights Sikiladi
Cereus Flower Heavenly hues under the moon Keeps shut at daytime and noon The Flower comes to full bloom Just for a night, just for me Before I know it closes itself too soon Sikiladi
