Definition

A mark placed on a woman's forehead, sometimes spelled bottu. Typically of a circular shape, it varies in shape and size across South Asia. Ultimately, while a great deal of significance can be put on the cultural reason for such a decoration (does it, for example, signify the "third eye" or chastity or even lack of chastity?), many women simsimply put it there.

Usage

She was sporting her signature pottu when she espied Tulsi Das ogling her like a third-rate roadside romeo.

Definition

A large paunch. Usually used in a fond sense, especially when referring to one's own.

A fat polissman standing sweetly on the corner might have a potté, but if he is performing a laathicharge on you, then you are unlikely to employ this term, more likely using the more disparaging "big fucking belly".

Usage

"My uncle has such a sweet potté. I sometimes keep my kaapi tumbler on it."
