Indians and Torrents, still a better love story than Twilight! Am I right or am I right?
Unless you’ve been living under a big rock, US Government’s take down of Kickass Torrents was the talk of the town a few days back. Fast forward to today, the misery continues for the torrent faithful as the news of Torrentz shutdown-being taken down broke out into the open.  The largest torrent meta search engine bids adieu to its loyalists after 13 glorious years.

Indians share a special bond with torrent, more so with Torrentz.
So, this is a lot to take in and “Torrentz will always love you. Farewell“, isn’t helping either.
