Its time to throw away the big sized yellow pages and directories, you can now get addresses, phone numbers, restaurant reviews, local businesses and much more of Indian cities at the click of a mouse.
Yahoo covers details of 13 Indian cities and also has photographs of the chosen city from Flickr. Yahoo answers are also pulled in for the city selected. The user interface is also nice and looks gud.
Another site which offers similar service is called Guruji. It advertises itself as “The Indian Search Engine”. It covers details of 16 cities. Guruji.com is India’s first crawler technology based search engine focusing exclusively on the needs of the Indian searcher.
Burrp is also a home grown site like Guruji and like the other 2, it offers city based informations. Currently only Mumbai, Bangalore and Kolkata are covered. Burrp! is an online platform where you can search and review local businesses, such as restaurants, bars, nightlife, juice centres, paan shops, bakeries, etc.
All the three are in Beta stages and with increasing localisation, I think more and more sites will soon follow.
