One day while browsing through a social networking site, I came across a very interesting poll.. which was thought provoking enough to make me think logically as well as emotionally.
What do you think is the fastest – Time, speed of light or thoughts?

According to Einstein’s theories, time is relative, and it depends on the speed at which one travels.
However Light takes such a short time (about 0.000005 seconds, in fact) to travel one mile.

I think “Thoughts” are the fastest… they can reach at any corner of the world within moments!!!
We can complete the journey of Past, Present, Future…. within no time. One moment I am here at my home enjoying a cup of coffee on a warm evening, another moment I can reach India to my family, friends. Many times I like to ponder upon the past memories and golden days of my life. Who doesn’t like to remember their most treasured days? The innocent childhood, mischievous schooldays, rocking college days, those “latest” crushes ;), stupid-stupid fights, happening celebrations with friends, those birthday bumps n mostly awaited birthday parties, getting late for classes, bunking lectures and then hanging out in canteen, fun filled gatherings, late-night chats, that “day dreaming”, sweet-stolen moments of the first love, preparing for exam and then parting with pals somberly after the final year, hunting for jobs, busy “Professional” life and that memorable reunion with old buddies 🙂
Hughhh!! whenever I think of it… seems like it has happened just yesterday! I am sure most of you too have reminisced your “HAPPY DAYS” of life till now.
Same theory can be applied for future. Astrologers say that pisceans are the most dreamy and imaginative persons, but I think this quality is there in everyone of us… more or less we all like to imagine about that special place in our heart, the corner which is reserved only for “ourselves”. And we all dream about our future, don’t we? The one who doesn’t dream can not achieve anything according to me. Coz when we dream about something, we aspire to achieve it and we can get it done through our imagination, hard work and some percent of luck…as they say “Luck by Chance!” 😉
So… these are our “Thoughts” which seems to occur instantly and have no barrier of time, space and boundaries.

What do you think, who wins the Race?

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago,  there were homing pigeons, postal service, telegrams n telephones.
And now, all the primitive forms of staying in touch have snowballed, picked up speed and evolved into a communication phenomenon we call
Orkut. It started out as a proper noun- the name of an online social networking site. But it has become so popular and so massive that it has morphed into its own verb, as “OK, I’ll just Orkut (scrap) you about that later.”

Orkut is a magical place on the World Wide Web where you can find nearly anyone you’ve ever met in your entire life. And they can find you.
Your first love, your last boss, your third cousin you have never met and nearly everyone on your Diwali card list is there.
If you have a pulse and can operate a computer, you should be probably on Orkut. After all everybody is doing it. (And, no, If everybody is
jumping off the bridge, you wouldn’t do that too. But I’m pretty sure Orkut and bridge-jumping are two entirely different things.)

I have been Orkutting for about 5 years now and I find it very much interesting. It was even more fun when invitations from old friends and
classmates started appearing in my inbox 🙂
Initially there was a lot of Skepticism about Orkut, but now with the addition of new privacy features, it has gained the trust and attention
of media. For ex. we can decide who should view/write in our scrapbook, see our Photos/Videos etc.
Not to forget the addition of third party widgets or applications (Add Apps) on Orkut, that makes it even more entertaining and engaging.
Of course, Orkut isn’t the only Social Network in town, but it is the most user friendly, simple and interactive.

Nevertheless a college student’s hobby project has now turned into a billion-dollar company that has people of all ages typing, updating,
connecting, “friending” and Orkutting until the wee hours of the morning.

Who needs homing pigeons, postal service or telegrams? Clicking the “Share” button is so much faster!

Happy Living 🙂
