Khichdee
Named after a rice-and-lentil Indian comfort food, Khichdee seeks to become the Craigslist of India, aggregating both online and offline classifieds into a monster search engine. While the site's content may differ at times from the listings on Craigslist -- ads for arranged marriages are common, for instance -- the idea behind it is much the same. Why place an ad in a local paper when you can post it on the Web and snag a potentially larger audience? With an average of 4,500 new ads posted day, the site is catching on.
