In hindu culture, bindi is traditionally used to indicate marital status on women, protects them from 'bad eye'. Male dot on forehead is called tilak. However today the religious significance of the bindi is largely forgotten and it is now worn as a fashion accessory rather than its religious significance, to the extent that it crops up on runways of fashion shows.

That said, the mood bindi/tilak indicates mood at any given moment by means of clear glass atop thermotropic liquid crystals.

Dark blue: Happy, romantic or passionate
Blue: Calm or relaxed
Blue-green: Somewhat relaxed
Green: Normal or average
Amber: A little nervous or anxious
Gray: Very nervous or anxious
