Fw: Mystery solved!


      For centuries, Hindu women have worn a dot on
      their foreheads. Most of us have naively thought this was
      connected with marriage or religion, but the Indian Embassy
      in Washington, D.C. has recently revealed the true story.
      When a Hindu woman gets married, she brings a
      dowry into the union. On her wedding night, the husband
      scratches off the dot to see whether he has won a
      convenience store, a gas station, a liquor store or a motel
      in the United States. If there is nothing under the dot, he
      must take a job in India answering telephones and giving
      unintelligible technical advice to frustrated Americans
