Dad Alert!

Flash news! Flash news!

My non-tech savvy dad has decided to join Orkut! Imagine my surprise when I got a friendship request from a certain Mr. K. Venugopal along with a personalized message -

‘Dhanya, I want to be your friend in Orkut. Is that okay?’

My pops asking my permission to be his friend. How cute is that ? :D

I am sounding amazed coz he was the last person I expected to be in social networking sites. I’m aware of other uncles & aunties joining but never expected MY dad to join. Orkut is turning out to be my family site with my sister, almost all cousins and now my dad joining. Like I said before, hum saat saat hain in everything & everywhere!

As of now, I am pop’s only friend. He’s trying things on his own daily… which is so amusing! I am planning to leave in a scrap every day, so that he gets that cute smile on his face every time he opens up his scrapbook….

P.S : I hope to God my mom doesn’t decide to join. As it is, she complains dad talks very less to her. All hell would break loose if he plans on ignoring her scraps too! :D


    My dad had been asking me "What is orkut". Changing times!
    It so very cute!
    Even my mom complains that dad does not talk much with her. My dad has the same answer everytime, "what should i talk?". LOL

  2. Aww that is adorable! :) My parents sit & read my blog together when they're have some free time, it's cute. My dad even wanted to leave little comments for each and every one of my art pieces I posted up..and I was like, Daddy Hi, I'm right here, you can just compliment me to my face. :P Hehe, parents are cute.

    Though I'm not sure how Orkut works, since I don't have one..but I don't think I'd want my mom or dad on my FB account. Lol, too much junk on there - from my wall, to tagged pics, to posted pics and god knows what else. :P

  3. lolz, u know wat? I made my mom, massi, maamu join orkut!! :D

    and yay its fun having ur family everywhere :D

    Good Luck and happy browsing Uncle :D

  4. ignoring mom's scraps!! cool...
    what if they both start chatting as strangers to each other as in some film?mitra i guess.. ;)

  5. i was readin abt this in some mag d other day...parents joinin networkin sites to keep a tab on their children

  6. :)
    No one from my family is on orkut :(
    Papa mumma and bhaiya all hate these social networking sites and all, they are in news every second day for one bad reason or the other na!
    anyways... and I had a grin on my face reading those scrapping between u and uncle... :D :D
    Ur blog is an awesome place to be in!
    I am glad I joined it :D


  7. So cute!!!! :D :D :D
    my dad gets thrilled when i say, i talked to blah blah and met him/her after ages on orkut...and facebook...
    and he gets very thrilled...and asks what happens in it and what is scrap and all..
    and then dismisses it by saying, its all useless lol :D :D :D
    ur dad rocks \m/ :D

  8. that is fun..

    my family is invading FB in a big way :P
