According to a survey conducted by Crossword Bookstores, the lightning scar on the forehead of Harry Potter has been found to be the most recognisable mark of the character from the novel, in India.
Based on the J.K. Rowling's original story of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child , a new play will be staged in London this week.
Among the following symbols like the Deathly Hallows, the lightning scar, the dark mark, platform 9 ¾ and the famous sorting hat, the lightning scar has been regarded as the most recognisable symbol among the Harry Potter enthusiasts in India.
The poll was made open to 9 years old children, to 30 years old young adults. It was a record, as over 650 participated in voting over a period of two weeks.
The lightning scar won with 37 per cent vote going in its favour as the most accepted and remembered mark of the character Harry Potter. Eventually the next most recognisable symbol in chronological order is the sorting hat with 25 per cent vote, the deathly hallows with 24 per cent vote, the dark mark with 12 per cent vote and platform 9 ¾ with five per cent vote.
CEO of Crossword Bookstores, Mr. Kinjal Shah said, "We did the poll to understand the kind of impact Harry Potter has had in India in the run up to the launch of the eighth book. And on the day of the launch, loyal Harry Potter fans will be able to enjoy Potter treats like butterbeer, hot cocoa, lightning scar cookies, and sorting hat cupcakes that we have created in partnership with Moshes".
"We've also put up a selfie-wall on a replica of the Hogwarts castle. This marks the launch of a whole new series, and we are excited about the same."
