Guruji.com, founded by two Delhi IIT graduates, today launched country's first local internet search engine, with a commitment of USD seven million from a leading Indian venture capital firm.

Aimed at the Indian web consumer, Guruji.com is focussed on providing better search results by leveraging proprietary algorithms and data in the Indian context, its Co-Founder and CEO Anurag Dod told reporters here.

I donít know how this SE works, but from public description I would think that it uses meta search as a *part* of itís algo.

As a side info, most notably two main guys worked at
-Wisenut SE (LookSmart) Ė core technology, Ebay ..
-Microsoft, Nokia,..,

no!

This sounds like definitive and authorities answer Ė if you know more please share.
