Gaza ~ An open air prison

but they have forgotten that
Allah is above them” ūüė•

We¬†don’t need to be a Muslim to stand up for Gaza, we¬†just need to be Human. #BeKind #Dua #PrayforGaza

Juncture

And I think its time for her,
its time to be happy again.

She has got someone,
someone She knows She can text at any hour
and tell absolutely anything.

She knows they are trustworthy
and it is the best feeling She had after long. ūüôā ‚̧

Open Book

So, during the transit today, I heard a¬†song blasting out of the earphones of a girl(with¬†a thoughtful smile) standing at a stretch¬†away.¬†With a feeling that I have heard the song before, I quickly searched and found that the song is named “Open Book” and is from an album called TV Dinners of Mikey McCleary. I first heard this song¬†during a TV add-break. I remember the song was used in a Mobile Network advertisement which impart¬†‘Moments of life are made for sharing’.

The add shows how life changes for a girl after the breakup.¬†The video is short, just 00:46 seconds long. I hope you’ll like it. ‚̧

The lyric are as,

I guess my life’s an open book
Anyone can take a look
No secrets here, to hide
This is just me

Holidays that come and go
Feelings change, people grow
And all I know is
I like being free

Da, Da, Da
I’ll be fine
This is me now
But I could change
Any time.

Rebuff

So, She had..

1623 friends on Facebook,
1098 followers on Twitter,
and about 726 WhatsApp contacts.

Yet, only one waited outside the ICU.
The one She had¬†unfriended and blocked. ūüėź

Bye Bye Orkut: Google to Shut Down Its First Social Network

Do you remember when was the last time you wrote a scrap? When was the last time you logged into your Orkut account. Ya, In fact, I also don’t remember the last time I used Orkut.

Orkut, Google’s first social networking site, will cease to exist after September, with the Internet giant deciding to shut down the service launched 10 years ago. Brazil & India were the most attracted towards this social site. I remember, I was never into Orkut that much but I used to see the craze in people around me, my friends & relatives. How eager they used to be when students of my class were heading back home. The excitement was just for using Orkut & interacting with different people.

Orkut was launched in 2004, the same year when Facebook was founded. Facebook is now the world’s largest social network with 1.28 billion users.¬†Suddenly, people were talking about how Facebook was the “next big thing”. And before you knew it, people were joining Facebook, adding it to their social networking collection. Preferences changed in such a way that people visited Facebook once every day, and Orkut once a year.

One of the most interesting features of Orkut was the who viewed your profile option. Essentially, a user would get to know if someone had visited his or her profile. Users would be excited at the prospect of a stranger visiting their profile. Eventually, Orkut did come up with an option where you could prevent someone from seeing whether you had visited one’s profile – the only catch was that the same option would apply to you as well.

My profile has less than 100 scraps & very few photos. Many Orkut users will archive their pictures and details from their profile, I intend to leave mine behind as a token of thanks.

Orkut has fallen down rapidly, but it will always be credited with bringing us our first, raw social networking experience. To quote the Google blog post that announced Orkut was going obsolete¬†this September: “Orkut helped shape life online before people really knew what ‘social networking’ was.

Thanks Orkut.. ūüėź
