What makes the non-South Asian person’s use of the bindi problematic is the fact that a pop star like Selena Gomez wearing one is guaranteed to be better received than I would if I were to step out of the house rocking a dot on my forehead. On her, it’s a bold new look; on me, it’s a symbol of my failure to assimilate. On her, it’s unquestionably cool; on me, it’s yet another marker of my Otherness, another thing that makes me different from other American girls. If the use of the bindi by mainstream pop stars made it easier for South Asian women to wear it, I’d be all for its proliferation — but it doesn’t. They lend the bindi an aura of cool that a desi woman simply can’t compete with, often with the privilege of automatic acceptance in a society when many non-white women must fight for it.

You say music is one of the most important things to you, so tell me: what are your favourite artists. The ones you desperately need.

There are a lot of artist that I love, but only one that I would say I “desperately need” and that would be the band La Dispute. 

Whoop! I got the job at Teavana! Hopefully I am good at sales, so I can get lots of hours.
