A day on orkut

Orkut, though still not an addiction is a superlative source of entertainment when you are down in the dumps or when your code just doesn’t seem to work.

The frequently-seen/asked scenes/questions/answers on orkut:

Boy wants friendship: hi, my name is ***, i accidently (sic) came on to ur profile ,but reading ur profile i think u r a very good person to make friendship, so would u like to be my friend

Desperate boy who wants to hide his desperation: i ws going thru ur profile n it appealed me in a way... i found u more simillar 2 me in some ways... while in general i find scraping as a boring job, i came fwd 2 leave a scrap 4 u wd any 2nd thought... n i also expect the same 4m u...i wanna b ur frnd...

After the amazingly hilarious introduction lines/pick-up lines on orkut, we shall take a look at a few funny communities.

Himesh Reshamiya’s fan club: This community would have been hilarious enough without the community description, and with a wonderful description, all in CAPS, it is funnier. Himesh Reshamiya’s fans always post in CAPS. For a detailed discussion on this, visit http://greatbong.net. Description: THIS COMMUNITY IS FOR THE FANS OF HIMESH RESHAMMIYA. WHO LOVE HIMESH AND MAD FOR HIS SONGS>>>>>> I LOVE HIM AND I THINK ALL THE MEMBERS OF THIS COMMUNITY LOVE HIM<<<<<<<>

Kannada Sex: Hilarious description again: A community of people who like having sex with kannada people.I believe (sic) tha (sic) Most of The beAuTifuL (sic) girls Are in karnataka. This Community is for whom love sex and love in karnataka. The guy is so excited that he could not run a spell-check on his community description.

Real sex story in Bengali: Description: a site for bangali "chele meye" to share their sextual (sic) experience. This community has only one member.

Bengalooru’s full, go home: Description: This community frequently gets shut down and rises up from the ashes. Post the name change from Bangalore to Bengalooru, the name has changed, alongwith the description. It still does make me laugh. This is a community which seeks to redeem bangalore's pristine culture, nature and Kannada Identity. The enormous influx of thankless immigrants has inflicted a great damage to the identity of Kannadigas and cultural-fabric of Bangalore. Most of these immigrants(Northies in particular [sic]) are notorious for not adapting to the local Kannada culture and neglecting Kannada. Adding to the woes is hospitable and courteous nature of Kannadigas, which immigrants don't deserve. This massive influx has resulted in soaring housing costs, rent etc.,. The refusal of Private Radio channels to air Kannada music, unvailibilty (sic) of theatres to screen Kannada movies are dangerous singals (sic) to the Kannada Soul of Bangalore. We Kannadigas need to assume more dominant role and shun the 'athithidevo bhava' attitude. One can hardly hear Kannada in many parts of Bangalore like ulsoor,Indiranagar,MG Road,Cox town etc It is high-time that we enforce Kannada and Kannada culture in the land of Kannada and clamp the immigrants.

PKaTaNi PoRn SeX MoViEs LoVeRs. Another hilarious community. Description: this community is for ppls those who love to watch & enjoy xxx movies ... but only from pakistan .... here we will provide information about making & geting (sic) local xxx rated movies .... ok then GUY & Girls usssss (sic) this isss (sic) ur own communty (sic)... JOIN & HAVE FUNNN (SIC)

Black, the Hindi movie: Yes, I find this hilarious. I find it hilarious that there are so many people who think the movie rocked. Here’s the description: This forum is for the people who fell in love of (sic) the latest Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie called Black. This movie is not only only about a blind,deaf,mute girl and her eccentric (read mad) teacher but of celebration of indomitable spirit of human mind,about the conquering (sic) the impossible,about love.This movie is also the landmark in Hindi movie with which it has graduated from the mindless flicks. This movie is the testimony of the acting capability of the Power houses (sic) called Amitabh Bachhan and Rani Mukhrjee and the most astounded (sic) performance by an unknown artiste called Ayesha Kapoor, whom my friends still refuse to believe as a normal child....No she is not normal...she is also a Power House... (sic)

Rang de Basanti: Here’s the description: ßë ä Rëßë£....Join and discuss the movie, music and suggest steps everyone could follow to make India more beautiful!

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake


The Tagore poem couldn’t have been more out-of-place. Anyways, with all the talk of making a difference and affecting a change, the only thing that happens in the community of over seventeen thousand members is a proliferation of stupid game-threads. Talk of making a difference!!!!

Orkut IS fun.
