Y: Yahoo!




We generally associate 'Yahoo' with the website and dot com company.

Yet do you know that there's a famous song 'Yahoooooooo' by evergreen Indian Bollywood actor of yester-years: Shammi Kapoor?!





And even better- do you know there's a link between this versatile actor and the company 'Yahoo' too due to this song?! This web savvy actor was called by Jerry Yang when Yahoo! opened its office in Mumbai! No, Shammi Kapoor was not the owner of 'Yahoo!' as many people think (even I did!) !!

Sadly he passed away in 2011, yet his shout 'Yahooooo' and his ever youthful nature remains embedded forever in our hearts......


**This is my post for letter 'Y' of A to Z Challenge 2014.
