It's been around for centuries.
Heck, I'm starting to wonder why these little gems have hit me. Sure, with an Indian heritage, they've always been there, but not there there!
A couple of weeks ago, I was on Wilmslow Road waiting for a bus, it was taking forever, as it does in the summer when the students have all gone home. Typically me, I got a bit bored and walked into the nearest shop, which just so happened to be Anand Fashions, an Indian clothes store that has a fair amount of jewellery and shoes.
Nothing was really doing anything for me, I was looking more out of politeness having walked in, than expectancy or even hope. And just as I made for the door, a little twinkling caught my eye. The bindis. A packet of tiny glistening little gems sparkling, grabbing me, making me buy them.
I am hooked, people.
I've ordered loads of designs off the tinternet and ordered a few through father dear whilst on his trip to India. No doubt I'll be all bindi'd out in a few weeks. But for those few weeks, I'll make the most of my binids in the sun and sparkle my way around town.
