Woman With A Red Dot

Woman wearing Bindi and Sindoor

The woman wore both Bindi and Sindoor

Shot in the city of Berhampore, India.

The woman wearing a vivid saree had a red dot called bindi between her eyebrows. It showed she was Hindu. However, it was no wonder because the major religion here was Hinduism. Besides, she drew also sindoor along the parting of their hair. It meant she was married. She was working at a small general store.

A poster of Horlicks which was GlaxoSmithKline's product was seen behind her. Although this city was a rural town, there might be many bad sleepers.
