THIS IS NOT A WHITE GIRL/BOY'S INDO-INSPIRED BINDI BLOG.
Bindis originate & are still part of south asian culture & are not some temporary fad that western capitalism can monetize off of with the premise of it being a exotic symbol for westerners.

Anonymous asked: I'm really happy that you included Siddi people on this blog! Afro-South asians are commonly excluded from South-asian cultures and societies, so thank you so much!

Messages like these make me so happy! I’m always trying to show how diverse South Asian peoples are and a lot of times Siddi and Afro South Asian communities are rarely spoken about so making them visible even on a small blog like this I’m happy to see it makes a difference and people are appreciating the visibility of our peoples =]
