$håùrÿá @ñäñd "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

Hmm... It's complicated.

Lets go flash. Somewhere in June 2006, I released Orkut Messenger, a messenger for the popular social networking site, Orkut - owned and operated by Google. I'm so glad to receive your nice and happy happy (and a few spam) messages and suggestions either dropped at my mail box or as comment on the post. Orkut Messenger was as an answer to OrkutCute and some thing called ScrapBoy. Well, it worked so great until Google revamped the Orkut portal causing all the scraps to bounce and only a few (in most none) to reach the user. After getting this initial appreciation (fame are for gays), I ventured to make something better, stronger and more importantly flexible. Then this existed. Orkut Messenger v2.

Though Orkut Messenger v2 was not publicly released. A few volunteer tester (thanks dudes, duh!) figured that Orkut was changed again and none of us (or ya, me) got anytime after that to make a new one. I got my internship and they figured something else. Orkut Messenger was forgotten. Basically the project was abandoned.

17 October 2007.

I have decided to restart the project and follow a more professional workflow this time. The technology remains the same - Microsoft .NET (may be 3.0+). Btw, a mention of the ClickOnce Technology used in the previous version was mentioned at Justin (Microsoft Israel Community) blog. Yea - Whatever! So the thing is - .NET based windows and/web application as Orkut Messenger. I am also thinking for changing the name to something sexier? LöL - How about Venedig? - I really like this place and am more inclined to name the messenger the same. I know who cares about the name - ya, its later, so be later.

Fixing the deadline as 19 November 2007, I believe it should be completed. Guys and Barbie hating gals who like to help me code buzz me anytime at shauryaanand@hotmail.com, gmail.com, yahoo.com, gmx.at or any other service you feel like. Important - I'm firm about using Microsoft.NET so don't mail be saying PHP is cool, PERL's awesome and Java's everywhere - I'm staying with .NET as the core engine.

Jai Hind!
Jai Hind! :)

बहुत दिन हुए वो तूफ़ान नही आया,
उस हसीं दोस्त का कोई पैगाम नही आया,
सोचा में ही कलाम लिख देता हूँ,
उसे अपना हाल- ए- दिल तमाम लिख देता हूँ,
ज़माना हुआ मुस्कुराए हुए,
आपका हाल सुने... अपना हाल सुनाए हुए,
आज आपकी याद आई तो सोचा आवाज़ दे दूं,
अपने दोस्त की सलामती की कुछ ख़बर तो ले लूं
खुशी भी दोस्तो से है,
गम भी दोस्तो से है,

तकरार भी दोस्तो से है,
प्यार भी दोस्तो से है,

रुठना भी दोस्तो से है,
मनाना भी दोस्तो से है,

बात भी दोस्तो से है,
मिसाल भी दोस्तो से है,

नशा भी दोस्तो से है,
शाम भी दोस्तो से है,

जिन्दगी की शुरुआत भी दोस्तो से है,
जिन्दगी मे मुलाकात भी दोस्तो से है,

मौहब्बत भी दोस्तो से है,
इनायत भी दोस्तो से है,

काम भी दोस्तो से है,
नाम भी दोस्तो से है,

ख्याल भी दोस्तो से है,
अरमान भी दोस्तो से है,

ख्वाब भी दोस्तो से है,
माहौल भी दोस्तो से है,

यादे भी दोस्तो से है,
मुलाकाते भी दोस्तो से है,

सपने भी दोस्तो से है,
अपने भी दोस्तो से है,

या यूं कहो यारो,
अपनी तो दुनिया ही दोस्तो से
