A Great Indian mystery solved

Finally, a great Indian mystery solved

For centuries, Hindu women have worn a dot on their foreheads. Most of us
naively thought this was connected with marriage or religion.

The Indian High Commission in Canberra 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 – a taxi licence in Adelaide,
B – a convenience store in Melbourne,
C – a service station in Perth,
D – a kebab shop in Brisbane, or
E – a take-away cafe in Sydney.

If there is nothing there, he must take a job in India answering
telephones giving technical advice to Telstra and Optus customers in
