Bye Bye Orkut

Most of my days start with scrolling thru my phone even before I get out of my bed.
Email, Facebook & Watsapp seems to be the first one to greet us in the morning.

Just like every other day I was scrolling thru FB and found that its buzzing with the news of Orkut being shutdown today.
Orkut – The very first social networking site my generation was hooked to.
Its literally been ages since I logged into that site and couldn’t stop myself from one last look.

Thou its been 3-4 yrs since I switched to FB, but logging into Orkut made me feel like I was back in the 90s. It seemed just - so simple :)

Yes that me !! With two heart symbols quoting my name :P Seems so stupid now.
Its like looking at an older version of myself. The naive & silly me :)

I just realize how much my life has changed and how much I have changed since then.

I couldn’t help but smile while I fondly gazed thru the old pictures and posts by friends. Frankly speaking I do not even recollect few names from that friend list.
But Orkut did help me find some long lost friends and some new friends.

So I took one last look and posted one last time - Goodbye Orkut !!
I won’t miss Orkut but I would surely not forget !!

Queen - Rani

Note :  I aint giving away the story :)

One word  - Fantabulous !!

Kangana Ranaut stands out, Undoubtedly.  She has portrayed the character of Rani with so much ease. You just can’t take away your eyes off the screen, even for a minute.

From the typical Punjabi household spirit to the enchanting Europe  - The Director has got everything right. The undying trail of comedy and natural moments keep you glued to the screen.

All the supporting actors are also very convincing. Be it the carefree, live in the moment girl VJ (Played by Lisa Hayden) or around the world roomies. Even the bad guy Vijay (Played by Rajkummar Rao) makes us hate him.


Music is apt.  Every song suits the mood and seems like a part of the story rather than being squeezed in. Cinematography needs a special mention. Make-up or should I say no make-up look of Kangana is very refreshing.

What I learnt - Its life, Things go wrong. Buck up and help yourselves. You will always find friends and family along your side. No matter where the people are from, all of us experience the same emotions. Respect yourself enough to know that some people do not deserve a second chance.
Explore the unknown and Live a little !!
