Meaning: The vermillion dot on a married women's forehead that acts as a big turn-off for potential suitors.
Pronunciation: Obvious.
Usage: Shamim thought he'll ask his neighbour out for a date. But he backed off when he saw her jeespot.
Root: The Sindoor (vermillion dot) is the married woman's cryptic way of saying, "Look dude, I am married." In North India, when you address a woman sporting the Sindoor, you attach a respectful suffix 'jee' to her name. As in Priyajee, Shanthajee, Bhavnajee...Therefore the dot that makes you go jee is the jeespot.
