Talking Original Valentine Story started from Gujarati!

Original Valentine Story started from Gujarati!


The Gujarati Story of Valentine

Notwithstanding what nonsense you've been told by a priest the truth is that the Valentine Day originated in India, and to top it, in Gujarat? It is a known fact that the Gujarati men, especially the Patels don't treat their wives (Patel'anis) with respect.

One fine day, it happened to be 14th day of February, one brave Patel'ani had enough of torture by husband, then she finally chose to rebel by beating him up with a Velan...(we gujjus call belan a velan ).

Yeah, the same Velan with which she made chapattis for him everyday;only this time, instead of the dough, it was the husband who was flattened.

This was a momentous occasion for all the Gujarati women and a revolt soon spread, like wild fire, with several housewives beating up their husbands with Velan; and there was an outburst of moaning chapattis
all over Anand and Amdahbad. The Patel men folk learnt their lesson and behaved a bit better with their Patel'ani partners.

Then after, each year that day the womenfolk, as a token gesture, beat up their husbands to commemorate that eventful day, the wives having the satisfaction of beating up their husbands with Velan, and the guys having the supreme joy of submitting to the whims of the women they loved.

As Gujarat fell more under the influence of Western culture that day was called 'Velan time' day. Hence this ritual soon spread to Britain and many other Western countries, specifically, the catch words 'Velan time!'.
Ofcourse in their foreign mouths, it was bastardized to 'Velan time' and then to 'Velantine'.

And from that day onwards, 14th of February, came to be known as
Valentine's Day.

Re: Original Valentine Story started from Gujarati!

Alternatively, this could also have it roots in Punjabi culture. In Punjabi language the term used for somebody have free time or jobless is 'vella'. Off late this term has become much used due to Bollywood and TV shows.

Now this 'vella time' .. by mispronunciation became 'Valentine'. It is a known fact that Valentine is all about spending your free time (vella time) by going out of your way to show your love, there's even a full day dedicated/set aside for it.
