- Just a Little Red Dot
An award winning video about the value of cultural diversity and the importance of eliminating discrimination. This is a true story shot by the teacher, Mitra Sen, in Tam O'Shanter Junior Public School, Toronto. A student new in her ESL class from Sri Lanka, gave Mitra a package of little red dots. After placing one on her forehead and explaining that "In Hindi, it's a Bindi". Other girls asked to wear them too. They were teased so much at recess that they took them off. Mitra's grade 5 students renamed the Bindi's "cool dots" and set about to educate fellow students about the significance of Bindis in the Indian culture and the need to respect the customs and traditions of all cultural groups.
