Just what is it with "the dot"? Well, someone has finally cleared it up:

For centuries, Hindu women have worn a dot on their foreheads. Most of us have naively thought this was connected with tradition or religion, but the Indian Embassy in Ottawa has recently revealed the true story.

When a Hindu woman gets married, she brings a dowry into the union.

If nothing is there, he must remain in India to answer telephones and provide us with technical advice.
