Since I'm feeling utterly fresh and un-sleepy now , talk about holidays! I was going through my old scraps. and the way we'v now shifted to facebook, made me realise how more open and sweet we were on orkut. back then we didn't know what we should post and what we shouldn't, and talked as we wanted to. It was like we were really expressing ourselves without knowing that anyone else would *like* it. Not that I mind being liked. Found meself laughing at some scraps and smiling at the innocence of others.I present here some of them which made me laugh and wonder where most of them are now.. why after the first few months of orkut we didn't keep in touch as zealously as we had started off. Anyway, enough of procrastinations,
The following are some of the first scraps from my scrapbook :-

1. I(think I) had asked this guy how many girls were there in his class ...

: ur other question regarding gals will b answered if u ve a luk at this site

2. My first fest :)

So r u goin to atttend the fest on all 3 days?? 18/03/2007

3. aaah those awf-some graphic days

: tui naki sakal 7 tay ghum theke utheii graphics korte boshe gachis!! grtt!

: heard you woke up at 7 and pounced on your graphic sheets? gr8!!

4. hahahha!! you know her

:What is a Kiss..? In view of:..
GEOMETRY-Kiss is the shortest distance between 2 lips.
ECONOMICS-Kiss is that thing 4 which DEMAND is higher then SUPPLY!
PHYSICS-Kiss is the process of CHARGING a human body..
COMPUTER-Kiss is like a LAN, in which 2 bodies are connected without DATA CABLE...!

5. Girl: she has written committed but not he ....... unknown Girl: neway howz is Bala doin? is bar kya uska attendance 30% se jyada hai ?

7. Would you imagine apologising to someone for not being online ? well, that was some guzra hua zamana

:yup.....sry for tht...actually sem got over in april n ve been on a vacation since come online very infrequently....neways wats up wid u...

8. The people whom u never remembered were even there in your class, and hence asked for a clarification. I'm serious, even now I don't remember this fella or laughing at his handwriting :|

Guy: ok this may may make me remember me a though it is a negative point
i had the worst handwriting in our class
u had even laughed at seeing my project in manika's hand
because it was prepared very badly
i had noticed that u had laughed at my project since i had an eye on every student in the class
we were in 9c at that time
u may not remember me by my name but u will surely remember this
do you?

9.Exchanging songs :))

: this isMahiya
Somewhere Out There, I Know There Is Someone
Who Is Waiting Just For Me Maahiya
He Is Gonaa Set Me Free Maahiya
Jiski Aankhon Mein Meri Hi Nami Ho
Koyi Toh Hai Woh Yaar Maahiya .........

..... these lyrics are too much abt captivity.......the girl is captured.......

10. Guy : u hav to register in dat website...they'll give u an url......u send it to ur frndz......
if u copy my url....all ur frndz crushes will be sent to me!!

When I re-read it, I thought all my friends' crushes will become his!!

11. Last but not the least, this ones from the usual unwanted unknown somebody who not only adds u, but by god atleast purane zamane me they used to give it a good try, ajkal to those unknown types just 'add' you, no hi & no cheesy message either.

cheesy scrap No. 1 :If i say hi.......u may say whoz this.... if i ask for chat....u may say why??.... if i ask u for a coffee.....u may say wt rubbish.... if i say i liked ur profile......u may say m flattering u..... if i ask for frnship.......u may say m flirting...... so can u plz suggest me hw to start wid a new relation.........???? till u reply i am trying wid a request.........".....m here looking for friends i like u, ur name is tellin me that ur some1 who can b my frnd.....……

hey m addin u up....hope u dont have ne problem.......

ps : and thats how the cookie crumbles. My sense of humour gets jaded as dawn draws nearer, but if you've stuck till the very end, I'd like to hear about some of your first scraps too ;)

Haha ! Good old orkut days :)
Even then we never minded going all the way to other people's scrapbook to reply.
But Orkut should stay as it is, not copy FB as its doing these days.

Amrita said...

I completely agree with vanilla sky.. orkut sweetness was in being orkut-y now its all beefed up to take on fb which is so un-like- able :(
i joined orkut prettyyyyyyyy late :( first scraps to yaad bhi nehi :(

joie de vivre said...

I was not very fond of orkut butt m really fond of facebook..pata nahi kyu..i was and stll not veyr active on orkut..I somehow not liked the interface.. :I

I'll try 2 be truthful said...

i completly agree with you, all those applications make orkut seem stupid.

however, we started orkut as innocent ppl :)) and that remains.

hehe to jake dekh lo , maybe some of them were from 'K' :)

@Joie de Vivre

Are you alive? kaise ho?

joie de vivre said...

Haan mein zinda hu..shadi ho gai yaar meri..bekar lagta hai sab koi aunty aunty kehte hai..
damn I don't look like aunty yaarr..

but my better half is awessome.. ;)

I'll try 2 be truthful said...


Congrats yaar :D tu aur aunty?? kaun bola ?? tu to babe hai :D
oooo other half is awesome haan? :D :D wah tujeh to pyar ho gaya..

- khush rahiyo :)

Mads said...

Neha Bakshi is not an aunty!!

And my scraps? errrr i deleted my orkut profile and i made a new one too, but never mind :P

my favouritest friendship request was this-
Hi I'm sarath from mumbai.
I like playing with toys and my best feature are my legs.
will u make friendship with me?


and i remember when orkut was popular i was in my 1st year, so if any batchmate had to flirt, he had to write a scrap and so whenever any boy wrote an ordinary scrap, bolling ki hey watsup, wat u doing? - i mean very normal sa, phir bhi everyone used to go like HE wrote on MADS ka scrapbook- WHAT'S GOING ON!?!

so i used to literally hate orkut, coz i had to answer so many questions for no reason :P

i liked this post. cute sa hai :) :*

Mads said...

people say there is less privacy on FB and more privacy on orkut, but i feel its the other way around. if u know how to fiddle around with the privacy settings, fb is more private anyday :)
so me prefers fb to sadu orkut :D
