      Thanks for reaching out to us. The articles just simply wants to give design options of the chandan bindi styles for the Bengali brides, and also for the other brides if anyone wants to try it. It nowhere has any relation to white or brown or in that case to a black women. The pictures are put irrespective of the caste, color and race with offering just the bindi design options and nothing else.
