    It was very kind of you to spend so much of time in making this thread and guiding many of us with the procedure to permanently delete Google account. The best part about your thread pas the pictorial representation. It helped me to understand the procedure in much better way. Thanks for making such a complex thing look so simple. You seriously came as a life saver for me. Once again Thank you a lot for your generosity and for your efforts and time.

    Yes you can but there are some condition you should understand first. Here Gmail and Google account can be considered 2 different parts. However, your gmail user name is your google user name. but if you have just deleted your only Gmail Account and not Entire Google Account than only you can recover your Gmail Back. But if you have deleted your entire Google Account (including orkut, youtube, etc..), than there is no way to recover that account again any how.
