ORKUT wins MTV Youth Icon title-The Google Story

The social networking website that has had the youth in a frenzy for some time: Orkut! The site has won the title hands down though the Aamir-Khan-starrer Rang De Basanti came in a close second. But that’s not all.

The Google-run website has two other reasons to celebrate.

Not only did it beat other nominees this year including actor Abhishek Bachchan, Multimedia Cell Phones and YOU, the website has succeeded icons like cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni, superstar Shahrukh Khan, cricketer Rahul Dravid and industrialist Anil Ambani.

Recently the mumbai lad Adnan's murder was planned through Orkut and even people had questioned whether the website to be removed etc.

However,nobody can deny that it's role is instrumental in bringing back many of our school/college friends back to our life after so many years of isolation.Atleast it happened in my case.

There will be a group of people in the society who always will mis-use an entity.The best thing will be ignore them and the government shouldn't take any hasty decision of blacklisting it or banning it.We can not blame the technology for this,rather should blame the social milieu.

Google is at its zenith.May it be the Fortune top 50 Businessmen of the world list or MTV Youth Icon..everywhere..they are reigning....

So the Google story..still continues.."Success not a destination rather a journey for them".
