Bindi Kumkum and Kajal

The bindi is the most noticeable body decoration and Indian women give great importance to this ornamental mark on the forehead between the two eyebrows. Bindi is also known as 'tika', 'pottu', 'sindoor', 'tilak', 'tilakam', and 'kumkum'. A bindi is usually a small eye-catching maroon round mark made on the forehead as adornment. The maroon round mark on the forehead is neither always maroon and nor always round in shape. Men wear it on auspicious occasions such as Puja, or
marriage and on festive occasions.
