The word "varen" means, "I will come". But it is used to mean the exact opposite, "I will leave."

To go" suggests "to go away for ever to heavenly abode", or "to attain the lotus feet of Rama". So, people say, "Varen", to suggest, when they are taking leave, that they will go now, but they will always come back.

Usage

Example 1:
"Seri da, macha. Varen." (Ok, da, brother-in-law. I will come.)
"Apdiyaa? Nee pore-nu nenachen." (L'that aa? I thought you are going!)
"Hahaha. Orey comedy!"

Example 2:
"Ok, thatha. Naan varen." (Ok, grandfather. I'm coming.)
"Va, va." (Come, come.)

1. Vande Mataram is a 1997 studio album by musician A. R. Rahman. It is the largest selling Indian non-film album to date and has been instrumental in instilling a sense of patriotic pride in India. The song is played at national events, before cricket matches and on tv especially when skirmish's with Pakistan happen.
2. Vande Mataram is the title of a poem/hymn in the 1882 novel Anandamatha by Bankimchandra Chattopadhyay dedicated to the goddess Durga. It came to be considered the "National Song of India", Many Muslim organizations in India have declared fatwas against singing Vande Mataram, due to the song suggesting the worshiping of "Mother India". Tagore's Jana Gana Mana was chosen as the National Anthem and Vande Mataram was rejected on the grounds that other religions who did not believe in Durga would feel offended by its depiction of the nation as a Hindu goddess.

The English translation:

I show gratitude to thee, Mother,
richly-watered, richly-fruited,
cool with the winds of the south,
dark with the crops of the harvests,
The Mother!

Her nights rejoicing in the glory of the moonlight,
her lands clothed beautifully with her trees in flowering bloom,
sweet of laughter, sweet of speech,
The Mother, giver of boons, giver of bliss

Usage

Motu: Lets all sing Vande mataram and feel patriotic.

They had to call their purses by this mouthful sound; 'vanity bag' because the mean men had snatched away the usage of the term purse for their own wallets!

Ladice carried them all the time except when they were in the bath or puja room.

The memsahibs needed to be constantly alert to protect it from the pick pockets.

The girls needed it to protect themselves from monkeys and dogs, swinging the vanity bag at the approaching animal shouting "shoo! shoo!" or "choo! choo! "

A woman would feel as if she was naked if she didn't have her vanity bag in the studio-snapped snaps.
