Orkut Now Supports Scraps in Hindi

Hinglish, the usage of both Hindi and English words in the same sentence, is an extremely popular form of communication in India - so much so that the venerable Oxford English dictionary now recognizes this as an official English word! And orkut's popularity in India means that a lot of scraps between friends are written this way.

Just edit your profile and add Hindi to the list of languages that you speak. Now visit any of your friend's scrapbook or just hit reply to your friend's scrap on your scrapbook and you will see an option to "type in Hindi" above the scrap compose area. Check that option (or just hit ctrl+g), and start typing your Hindi words in English as you normally do. And lo and behold, the words will get converted to Hindi script as you type!
