The trend seems to be catching. Everytime i write about a website, the name seems to get more catchy!
Guruji.com is a Indian search engine. Reading this the first reaction was - another search engine. Then i went ahead and read the reason behind the name Guruji. Guru is a Indian word mostly use for spiritual reasons. Keeping the same in mind Guruji.com was developed to become a technology guru showcasing Indian content. Fair enough, but that doesnt make it an innovative startup.
I went ahead and checked the Management Team and found out that founders had a strong background with good pedagogy and relevant experience. All the more reasons for me to be shocked - How can 4 people with such strong background come up with a product which has no differentiator. To add to it Sequoia Capital as investors!!...
But there are some good points which i only realised when i checked the search engine. One, It is very India specific so what you get is specific information. Two, you have a coloumn "City" and when you search using that you get the contact details for such websites where applicable. Third, if you want to see movies it can be a good search engine. Despite the above three couldnt find a "WOW" factor unless missed something.
May be a discussion with founders or if you find something which i missed, pls. comment! Read more on http://guruji.com
