A recently shaved Hindu girl with a swastika drawn on her scalp (ARCHIVED PHOTO on the weekends - originally photographed 2009/05/20).

It's rather unfortunate the swastika symbol was commandeered and bastardized in relatively recent times. The great religions of India have used the swastika as a symbol for thousands of years to represent anything auspicious.
