With such a large Indian presence in Dubai, a lot of the online news for the area have links to Indian ads.  One that got my attention this morning was the Bengali Matrimony web site,

It’s mostly the same as what (I assume) you’d expect on an online dating site back home.  It has a few differences though.  It seems to have a pretty comprehensive search on religion, region and language – I guess as India’s such a large, populous and diverse place.

But I thought the face search was most interesting

What it does is allow you to return all the prospective brides that have a facial similarity to your chosen Bollywood actress. Woohoo!

It seemed a bit hit and miss from my trial of this (for purely research purposes obviously), but obviously worth a try.
