Re: [FAO] Real Love....

Very nice pics, pl keep it up, my dear fnds,
Wish You all "A very very Happy Valentine Day"
Some one from Gujrat says "Happy Belan Time"
One of my fnds, Mrs Mamta says :-
In spite of what you have been told by everyone, the truth is that Valentine's Day originated hundreds of years ago, in India, and to top it all, in Gujarat!!

Years ago Gujarati men, specially the Patels, continually mistreat and disrespect their wives (Patelanis) .

One fine day, it happened to be the 14th day of February, one brave Patelani, having had enough "torture" by her husband....
She finally chose to rebel by beating him up with a Belan (rolling pin).

Yes....the same Belan which she used daily, to make chapattis for him....only this time, instead of the dough, it was the husband who was flattened.

This was a momentous occasion for all Gujarati women and a revolt soon spread, like wild fire, with thousands of housewives beating up their husbands with the Belan.
There was an outburst of moaning "chapatti-ed" husbands all over ......

The Patel men-folk quickly learnt their lesson and started to behave more respectfully with their Patelanis.
Thereafter, on 14th February, every year, the womenfolk of Gujarat would beat up their husbands, to commemorate that eventful day.The wives having
the satisfaction of beating up their husbands with the Belan and the men having the supreme joy of submitting to the will of the women they loved.

Soon The Gujju men realised that in order to avoid this they need to present gifts to their wives....they brought flowers and sweets.
Hence the tradition began and that day was called 'Belan time' day.
The ritual soon spread to Britain and many other Western countries, specifically, they catch words 'Belan time!'. Of course in their foreign tongues, it was first englisised to 'Valentine'. And thereafter, 14th of February, came to be known as Valentine's Day!
..... HA HA HA ...

Always Have A Smile On Your Face!!!!! when i'm here, i'm here.....Hope this blog put a smile on ur face....


So dear fnds and Yahoo groups team
