A guy lost his girlfriend in a train accident.... But the gal's name nowhere appeared in the dead list. This guy
grew up n became IT technical architect in his late 20's, achievemnt in itself!!.

He hired devlopers from the whole globe and plan to make a software where he could search for his gf through the web...
Things went as planned... n he found her, after losing millions of dollars and 3 long years!!

It was time to shut down the search operation, when the CEO of Google
had a word with this guy n took over this application,

which we today know as ORKUT.

The guy's name is ORKUT BUYUKKOKTEN.Yes its named after him only. Today
