mritusant:-D Its a totaly false story. The only truth is that Google employees has leasure hour where any person is free to do any innovative work and Mr Orkut had developed Orkut in his innovative hour and later persuaded Google to develope it into a bigger product and Google named this product in his name. Mr Orkut is still an employee of Google.
