As i Promised here comes my blog on Orkut ... i wanted to write a blog on my experiences so far in the Orkut .. My inspiration for this particular post is Ms Harini....though i created my profile in 2004 i think, i became active only in later part of 2006...Initially i joined chennai rulezz and was spending some of my free time there...then through one of my friend i came to know abt Orkut Iyers or OI as its known famously....I joined there mainly to discuss some spiritual things and to have some more info about the same.. but soon i found i have wrongly understood abt the community....
It started within a month after i signed up there.. when some Bashing for our traditions going on,which i found very odd. we don't need to follow all the customs followed by our forefathers.. but we don't need to criticise them without knowing why they have practised them ... wow, the moment they felt some opposition, a group jumped in and began to attack(yes literally) me and my friend which went lil personal at a point... but when i raised the issue with Mods(grp of ppl who supposed to be unbiased) and owner the reply i got was "u are the one who attacked personally.. i thought wow wat a gr8 grp of ppl... then i thought ok its enough .. i cant continue here .. After that i became busy and stopped orkutting for sometime...
Fast forward to 2008 March
I made a comeback to OI after a gap of 1 year.. Thought OI would have changed.. but to my dismay i found it was same, if anything changed those ppl are more stronger this time.. This time i decided to be more wiser and was more involved in chatting in Conference Room(CR)..
the same bashing of our traditions was still there.. adding to that, if a person in newbie and if he post something without knowing abt OI, his time in OI will become painful really., there are certain ppl who enjoy seeing others pain..they think them self as intelligent of all the ppl in the world and behave very badly which will not fit into educated fellow, leave alone for an iyer guy or gal
If you go through the list of threads you can find some threads which was started by a person(s), which on outset might make you feel, wow this person is highly intelligent to discuss these things in a public forum... no no don't think like that.,. they just wanna appear like that.. Also they hate others starting threads for useful purpose.. yes , giving information about a book or song or something like is better than discussing and crying about a particular player ..
If you have rights to start a thread and discuss about a player or a sport , other members also have same rights . Its not the duty of a person to criticise a person for starting a thread or entering into all new threads and saying something crap about the thread and Thread starter.. Ithula vera ivanga senioram OIla ..
Let me stop here and continue in the part II more about Me and Orkut rather me and OI
Note : It is my attempt to Key down my experiences in Orkut . Nothing More then than that [:P]
