Videos, songs and YouTube

Once I wanted to hear to a song desperately, I went to Google and started searching for the song, I got many links which I browsed through, but did not get the result I wanted, that is when I came across this video site YouTube for the first time. I went through it and to my surprise I just dint listen to the song but also watched the video of it within no seconds! That is when I got a hang of the video sites, its easy, fast, and easily viewable! This is story of millions of youtube,.com users who are addicted to

There are many video sites that are coming up these days! Life without a video site is now next to impossible! People are getting so much used to them that they just cant imaging living without one. They now sleep, eat and live on videos…isn’t it?
The most popular video sites of all is the, you will find whatever you want to view on this site, just name it, search it and its there. There has to be at least one video present for the topic you are interested in.

Why has video sites become so exciting? Because they are next to reality, it feels as if you were there and done that. is just one of the sites that is there on the world wide web. is most popular because of their downloading speed, within no seconds the videos are there in front of you, it hardly takes any bandwidth, and most importantly is very user friendly.

YouTube is not only famous in India but also famous world wide. There are so many people from all over the world who come together and upload their videos, it is a platform where there is no racism, no caste or religion and everyone can view everyone’s video, everyone can see and hear to views of thousands of people from all over the world! Yes this is what has made it possible! is a platform wherein no one is rich or poor, everyone belongs to one religion that is, and most importantly there is no charges applied to view the videos.
There are different channels, categories and communities which you can be part of. is the most popular internet television as they call it, and ranks 16 in the most visited websites. This site is even popular then Google videos. In fact Google has acquired it sometime back in a record money.

There was a time when one could watch videos only on TV, but now entire TV can be connected to the computer, these video sites are now more popular than TV, this is because here you get to watch what you want, and that too at whichever time you want. You don’t have to wait for anyone and can also watch the video 110 times in a day!

What is your opinion on such videos website? Please comment.

Hello Stella
I have been through your posted topics and find them to be very relevant. I agree with your views. I am from Bombay and work in Dubai since the past 9 years. Would you like me to post topics relevant to Dubai or UAE ? If you visit Dubai it would be a pleasure to interact with you. Keep expressing yourself fearlessly. Regards. Take care.

Ya, I agree with the topic. But we should be resposible while keeping our messages in an open forum like this. we should not post anything which may hurt sentiment of peoples of any group. a few days back, someone was posted videos of mahatma Gandhi where Gandhi were doing acitivities which were against his believes and it hurt many Indians like me. We must be responsible.

Hey Stella,

I appologize not being in touch with you for a while now. I was a bit busy. But now everything's settled with normal chore.

I had gone through this article about Mumbai and I really felt ashamed. I heard this for the first time that this happens in Mumbai so often that it is hard to get a residential space per your needs there. I really hate such people who believe that everything moves on with caste and creed system effectively. No wonder such people or community had made India felt ashamed and not a good place to live.

I think nowhere in the world such things happen that you want a place to live and the communal differences becomes high priority for people.

The Technology is no doubt a very good tool for communication with people who are far apart and where the distance is too much to travel for.

But the technology has made things very complicated. You may be in touch with a person far apart but some do not even have the time to say hello to their neighbor, It is quite surprising but that is what the fact is. People have become impatient and are waisting their time on unimportant things and not so very relevant things to their life. Earlier there were only a handful of channels in India for entertainment and now there are countless channels of them all showing the same thing. Inspite of all the tons of Channels around and so many entertainment options people feel so empty and incomplete from inside. They are still looking from something which they themselves do not know they are not even able to figure out as to what they want.

These video sites and other stuff which come up now and then is just one more tool for the people to express themselves in creative or not so creative manner. Some join these types of forums because they think that they have got the means to express themselves others join because some have joined in this manner the whole cycle begins.

Any ways in the end all of us have the choice to choose what we think can entertain us in the best possibel manner.

Free World and Freedom of expression without any oppression is important.

Hi, Stella

No body is angry with you and everybody wants ur frenship(relevant from the comments), then how can I.

I agree with u that you tube had definitely provided a plattform for this generation to not only see the videos(for entertainment) but also give their honest feed back (interaction). But to reach the grass root level of Indian Society it will take some.

Dear Stella,

Why don't you write on some burning problems of todays Asian countries.
Say Arcenic problem is hitting even Thailand including Mayanmar,Bangladesh,Eastern and North Eastern part of India.
It is equaly important issues like deadly dieases,
What is your comment-
Iam sure you can help to develop the awareness.

With love and regards

Hi Dear,

I do not understand what you wish to express by your story,as such story are neither too hot to be selfsold nor they are strong enough to wake humanity.
Either you should improve your way of expression or better take some current issues linking to eveyones life to make them count.

A friendly advice
Have a good time
With Love

Will keep in touch and thanks for being a friend.

Puga said...

I am pretty much impressed on the way you handled the words in your profile. However, it was missing in your article.

For me watching youtube is one of the good entertainment stuff.

Falgun Shah said...

Hi Stella,

Liked your report, would like to be in touch with you.

Have you heard of a story of a fine arts student of Baroda fine arts school being jailed? His crime - he had put up a gallery of art of Indian goddess in nudity. This has a similarity to what you reported. The police has violated the freedom to expression. Would like you to go to the root of the story.

By the way, you look too beautiful to be ignored. Hope I had a girl friend like you.

With luv and luck

Mohamed said...

what do u mean by " is a platform wherein no one is rich or poor, everyone belongs to one religion that is"... Don't u think these words are quiet irrelavent pertaining to the context that u have posted regarding Youtube...

I agree with u at some stage not for all.becoz acceptations r always their every people not like that .they can understand the problem and possible way to help…so don’t go for acceptations. that I believe…. said...

Yes, it is now became popular because they are next to reality, is a platform wherein no one is rich or poor, everyone belongs to one religion that is, and most importantly there is no charges applied to view the videos web. Any body can upload a video clip. So we should upload regional video clip so that people can know.

Krrish said...

Dear Stella
It's nice to read about your experience in youtube. There are lot more. There is a software called youtube grabber. You need to just copy and paste the video link and press the button "Grab". Within few seconds the video gets downloaded into your computer. After that you never need to be online to watch the video again for 110 times a day (Iam wondering how can it be exactly 110 times).
The video will get stored in your computer in .FLV format and you can play the video using Media Player Classic or Flash player or any other supported softwares. Once the video got stored in your system you have complete control over playing that as usual.

bibhu said...

Actually I was on a week long leave and I'm back.Right it's yahoo on which u met me.
I'm so much curious to talk to, don't think otherwise.

Really you are doing a very honest thing through blogging by spreading awareness
among people. is basically a great endeavour in the field of entertainment.
It is now good enough to the software guys like us, who generally doesn't have enough
time to go to theatre.

keep on writing to me and be in touch with me.

Hi Stella,
I agree with you its great what sites like You Tube have done for the freedom of expression. What appeals to me most is that it gives me the freedom to watch whatever I want and post whatever I want. Here I would like to comment on one of the comments posted. Someone said we have to be responsible for what we post. Now this sounds like a pretty benign comment but potentially it is very dangerous as it contains the undercurrent reasoning that it is right to ban things we are uncomfortable with. If this attitude seeps into our collective consciousness it would be the death knell for our freedom of expression. I would respond to the comment by saying this is not the national news channel. Now there it would make sense to be responsible. There it is important for a journalist to research his/her subject and backup whatever he/she says with facts not on a forum like you tube. On you tube if I get a kick out of drawing a moustache on Bush or showing a caricature of Lalu Prasad Yadav, well that is my prerogative. Just as you have the choice to watch what you like you also have the choice to not watch what you don’t like. I don’t know what is this compulsion that causes people to thrust their value system / likes dislikes onto others. I remember recently a minister had banned the channel AXN, I doubt that he had ever even watched the channel. I have seen the program for which it was banned, it was pretty harmless in fact quite witty, but that is beside the point. The point is if you don’t like it don’t watch it who is forcing you. I don’t know maybe it has something to do with the fact that we are social animals and have a need to belong to a group or community. Therefore the pressure and urge to conform and to show our sincerity we force others to conform. Ever explore the possibility that retaining ones individuality may not jeopardize the group. Is our culture / community / religion so fragile that giving space to individuals would cause it to crumble?
Stella, sorry for the lack of cohesiveness at parts I was just thinking out loud. I did not intend to offend any one only to initiate a discussion. Keep writing, maybe choose more thought provoking topics.
