UPDATE: As this tutorial requires you to add JavaScript to your blog, so an updated tutorial has been published on Blogger, to add exactly the same Orkut Share button without any Javascripts.
Instructions to follow:
STEP #1
Log in to Blogger -> Layout -> Edit HTML and click on the tick-box “Expand Widget Templates

STEP #2
Find this code in the template:

</head>

And immediately ABOVE/BEFORE it, paste this code:

<!–ORKUT-STARTS–>
<script src=’http://www.google.com/jsapi’ type=’text/javascript’/>
<script type=’text/javascript’>
google.load(&#39;orkut.share&#39;, &#39;1&#39;);
google.setOnLoadCallback(function() {
var params = {};
params[google.orkut.share.Field.TITLE] = &#39;<data:blog.pageName/>&#39;;
params[google.orkut.share.Field.DESTINATION_URL] = &#39;<data:blog.url/>&#39;;
var connection = new google.orkut.share.Connection(params);
document.getElementById(&#39;orkut-share&#39;).onclick =
function(e) { connection.send(&#39;orkut.com&#39;, {}); };
}, true);
</script>
<!–ORKUT-STOPS-Blogger-Help-https://bloggerstop.net–>

Now search for this code:

<div class=’post-header-line-1’/>

And immediately BELOW/AFTER it, paste this code:

<b:if cond=’data:blog.pageType == "item"’>
<span id=”orkut-share” style=”cursor:pointer; border:1px solid black”>
<img src=”http://code.google.com/apis/orkut/docs/images/share.gif”/>
</span>
</b:if>

To change/modify the display button, simply upload your image to any image hosting website (recommended – tinypic.com) and replace the link in RED color with your new DIRECT LINK.
You may use any of these buttons too:

If you don't want to show that orange border around that image, then add the border code as 0, i.e.

<img border="0" src=&quotcomment image"/>

But, I have tried doing it manually.. directly from orkut (not blogger).. unable to hyperlink. it simply shows as text, not clickable link.

While hyperlinking in orkut, you can nowhere use <a href=""…

instead of that, use this tag:

[link=https://bloggerstop.net]BloggerStop[/link]
