Many of you have probably noticed the increase of Indian users within Orkut. I was puzzled at this myself, and after finding about a Brazilian word rhyming with Orkut I tried searching for something similar within India.
At long last we have an explanation.
(Ideal Web Tools) Chirkut is non-dictionary hindi word often used in Utter Pradesh and Bihar (two states from India) to praise a person for being loser, stupid and dullard. Recently our favorite politicians have accepted this word as an integral part of performance appraisal system (Interested people can read, "So what if am a 'chirkut'?" by Samajwadi party's Amar Singh).
AjiNIMC (the author of Ideal Web Tools) provides this humorous image as a visual example.
With that mystery now solved, we can now turn our attention to what is happening inside the Orkut forums.
