My Best friend

As I Promsied Here comes my Blog on Friends in orkut. but there is a slight change on the topic. Instead writing about all or some of the friends in Orkut,, let me tell about my best friend i got in orkut.

In my Initial Stage in orkut, i have accepted some friend requests and have sent some friend requests, But only after 2 or 3 months i Met this friend in Iyers Community. As the regulars in that community Know , we became friends during one heated debate. Then we began to chat in gtalk for whole day and night and sometimes in phone. We found most of our interests are same. my Friend also traditional and follow all the traditions of our community. My Friend was felt rather lonely in their home and me also was going through lot of problems during that time(Before Marriage).

Main aspect of our friendship is that , we never meet often like most of the friends. our main mode of contact would be either gtalk or mobile. But if anything happens to me (be bad or good), the first person to know that will be my friend. Its same that side also.I had some bitter experience as far as the friendship is concerned. When I got the news the about the marriage of my friend i was over the moon, because i know how my friend suffered in the life.

My friend's Life partner is a cool person and very very understanding and caring. We were blessed in the sense that our Life partners accepted our friendship and they are also Good friends now.

So you all will be very eager to know who that person is. She is My Best Friend and a Gift to me "Sweta".

The whole purpose of writing this Blog is that its my little gift to my best friend "Sweta"

This is my last part of the series of Blog on my orkut Experiences. I will come out with new set of series soon till then bye

Orkut and Me Part 3

As I promised on Part I , here comes my next blog on my Experiences in Iyers Community. In Every community there will be 2 or 3 persons who act as moderators of the community. They are supposed to be Neutral without taking any sides during any problem. But here you can find the moderators supporting only one group of people and will claim they are neutral [:P]. Then comes the fights in the threads. They will say all the thing they want to say against you and your post, and will finally say "After all its a online community, why you ppl bother this much", which is so irritating. If you follow that why you attack others at first place. The beautiful thing in the fights is , you will be the one get warned not the one who started fighting or bashing.
Owner of the community , ah well, i never seen him online or active in the community. Even if you escalate the things nothing Will happen and most probably he will change one moderator who once again will be doing the same things mentioned above.

Thread Jacking
TJ- Thread Jacking(Derived from Hijacking) is an art to be frank. You can see lot of such artists. Its just talking irrelevant to the topic of the thread and making whole thread get spoiled. There is a group there who's only activity in the community is TJing. Basically its a fun. But there needs to be a limit for everything. You can't just simply all the topics which are there in the community. Again the action taken will be very minimal. Even if its taken once again it will be biased only.

Thread Deletion

If a person have time to read the thread and then putting a post "this thread is going to be deleted ", why cant put a Seperate thread and post the name of threads they have deleted along with a reason. How long its going to take for that . Few extra minutes... But they wont . Also there is no thread or any information for a newbie like what kind of threads can be opened and what should not be . How can you held him responsible if a topic which you have banned is posted when he does not know about what can be done and what cannot be?

Friends

Finally, one good thing happened to me in iyers community. I got lot of friends now and few close one.I don't want to put any ones name here. Yar peravathu vittu pochina appuram Problemthan.
I will come up with seperate Blog on the friends and flirts in ஓர்குட்.

Me and Orkut Part II

Thanks for the comments for my last piece (Me and Orkut). Now here comes the 2nd part on the same topic. Since my last blog was posted there were lot of things happened so i did not find time to complete my 2nd part.

Since i posted my bitter experiences in the last blog, its time for me to post my happier moments .

Apart From Iyers community, I am active in one more called Ponniyin Selvan. This community is dedicated to Kalki's master piece. In the beginning we used to discuss only about the book and the characters coming in that. But after the first meet of the community which took place on 7th September our discussion changed. We decided to come up with a exclusive website for Chozhas(a famous Tamil Dynasty) as we are inspired by their achievements in all the fields be it Governance, army etc.. So we began to work towards that and now we have our website for the great chozhas(http://www.thechozhas.com/).

As a part of PS community we decided to tour chozha kingdom and went to places in and around Tanjore in February.(unfortunately i missed the tour). Now our people are gearing up for another tour this time in Karnataka. That Community is such a wonderful place in orkut thanks to Thiru , Jothi and others(Cant mention all the names as it is a big list).
Sometimes i wonder why can't all the community be like this ????


Note: for all those who expected different Part II, wait for some more time..............................
