I was being told by my friends that Orkut has gone into the tricolor colours to celebrate India’s 60th Independence Day. They were happy that the world would know this, but would they ??

We decided to see if this India Stunt was truly global or just a localised gimmick. And as expected, it was a special thing only for traffic originating from India, with a view to attain Good PR from Indians ? Its a localised doodle to put it straight. As you can see when we accessed Orkut from a non-Indian IP, it showed us the normal page like it does to the Rest of the World.
