'Jai Ho!' say Indians on cyberspace

New Delhi, Feb 23 (IANS) Cyberspace is buzzing with the Oscars, and music maestro A.R. Rahman seems to be leading here too! Even as he is in Los Angeles attending the ceremony, his website has been updated and boasts of his being the first Indian to bag two Academy Awards the same night.

In the rest of the cyber world, it's an almost unanimous "Jai Ho" - as people's status on social networking sites and chat lists has been set to these words from the Oscar winning song in the movie "Slumdog Millionaire" since early Monday.

"India! Jai Ho!" screamed Bangalore-based student Vaishali Baruah's chat message on Yahoo messenger after it was announced that the movie had won eight Oscars.
