Bindu’s bindi celebration
This October is being celebrated worldwide as Hindu Heritage Month. One of the celebrations demonstrate the relevance and significance of bindi in its truest essence. The idea is to bring back the traditional culture of putting bindi and tilak into mainstream society.
The auspicious occasion of Navrati witnessed the celebration of World Bindi Day on Oct 7th 2021.

Bindi means a point, drop, dot or small particle worn on the centre of the forehead, originally by Hindus, Buddhists and Jains of the Indian subcontinent. Bindu is the feminine version of the word “bindi”, denoting a small ornamental dot affixed to the forehead as a devotional ritual in Hinduism.
BINDU DEOKINATH MAHARAJ believes that paramount to one’s existence is the understanding, respecting and embracing of one’s history and ancestry. Drawing from the richness of her Indo-Trinidadian heritage, Bindu explores space, femininity and identity through her writings.
She has been an educator for 25 years and presently moderates the Indo-Caribbean Cultural Centre’s weekly ZOOM Sunday public meeting.
