For centuries, Hindu women have worn a red
spot on their foreheads. We have naively
thought it had something to do with their religion.
The true story has just been revealed by the
Indian Embassy in Washington.
When one of these women gets married,
on her wedding night, the husband scratches
off the red spot to see if he has won a
convenience store, a gas station, doughnut shop
or a motel in Florida.
