Information at our fingertips

When was the last time we looked up a telephone directory? The last time we visited our bank? For a lot of people, it has been a while since they did these things. Today we are used to information on our fingertips.

The internet, cellphone, dialup telephone directories are making more and more information available at our disposal. It is now taken so much for granted that if we want to visit a new place we search for it on the net. This is true for only a section of the population though.

In India, there are large chunks of information that is still not easily available on the net for a potential user. If it is, it is still not easily accessible. Local details for instance, Small businesses etc. have a lot of space to cater to the net savvy customer in India.
