Definition

Fanning is a common Bangalore girls' school phenomenon from the 80s and 90s. It consists of one number junior girl being a fan of one number senior girl. Fanners needed to be loyal to just one fanee where as fanees could have several fans. Fans expressed their intentions by giving gifts and generally stalking the one they "fanned".

This was an acceptable means of release of libido in a single sex, homophobic environment.

Usage

5th std girl- Hey, girlie, I saw you behind the Benthene house captain at break time.
girlie- ya, I have started fanning her.
5th std girl- but yesterday you were fanning the Delima house captain.
girlie- ya, but now I left her, ya.
