Red Sun

Rising sun so soft,tender like your forehead's red bindi splashes colour in my mind another new dawn. =========000========== Contest name--Red Sun Date--- 24th June 2013
Bindi--A bindi ( Sanskrit bindu, meaning "a drop, small particle, dot"), or a pottu/bottu (in Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam) is a forehead decoration worn in South Asia (particularly India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Mauritius) [1] and Southeast Asia. Traditionally it is a bright dot of red color applied in the center of the forehead close to the eyebrows, but it can also consist of a sign or piece of jewelry worn at this location.

I've read a scientific reason behind the application of tika or bindi at the spot between eyebrows. when the spot is pressed with the finger during application it retains energy and strengthens concentration. hello fellow Indian! its great amalgam of culture and new dawn!
