But today i was going through the newspaper and one article caught my attention.It was about facial search which was being used in the marraige portal Bharat Matrimony.I bet every one of us have had a crush on someone and some have been lucky enough to actually transform that crush into a long standing relationship but for those who were not able to do so don’t worry facial search can be of some help.

After nearly a month long speculation about IPL as to whether it would be held in India or outside India and if in India then are all the states going to cooperate. Finally the speculations were put to rest on Sunday the 22nd of March just 20 days before the tournament gets underway.
