Mittal figured an online medium would increase a person's chances of finding the right person. The Web site's profiles diverge little from what has been traditionally done for decades. Among personal and hobbies sections are the traditional questions about family values and parents' education, Hindu horoscope signs, married siblings and mother tongue.
