Oondi was launched on the 12th of December 2006 after almost one month of planning and 5 months of development. The idea behind oondi is providing the world with free high-quality information, much like Wikipedia but crediting and rewarding the author for his or her work. In order to keep this site running without requiring donations, we rely on contextual advertising. However, we are in no way affiliated with or sponsored by any third parties. Oondi is - and will remain - fully independent and objective when it comes to publishing differing opinions and views. In fact, anyone is allowed to write for oondi and he or she will receive all advertisement profits generated by his or her work.
Before launching this website, searching for the word 'oondi' resulted in 826 matches. Some results indicate that it's an Indian name, others mention recipes for preparing oondi:
"Dip in boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain, press out and cool.", although the latter seems to be a typo of the word 'boondi'. So what does the word mean? We're not sure it really had a meaning, so we've decided to it a new meaning; as a collective noun for articles, reviews, tutorials, interviews and stories.
