Orkut Buyukkokten, the creator of Orkut.com, one of the early and most famous social media platforms, is planning to unveil his new social media network ‘Hello’ in India in the next two months.

Mr. Buyukkokten, 42, who is already running the beta version of ‘Hello’ in the country, said his new venture connects people who share the same interests and passions and provides a place for authentic communication.

“If you look at the Indian culture, people are so connected,” said Mr. Buyukkokten, founder of Hello Network, Inc., in a phone interview. “There is a sense of togetherness and we are bringing that togetherness that we see in our daily lives on Hello.”

Unlike other social networks, the firm said it was trying to create these connections in a non-judgmental environment.

Last i remember, Orkut had more users in Brazil and India.
Why releasing app for Indian users alone?

Because of the overpopulated user-base to arrive #1 in short period? ;)
