GUWAHATI, June 15 – A search engine titled ‘Bisarok’ – exclusively for Assam – has been launched. It has added websites of the Government of Assam, educational institutes, and the print, web and television media of the State.
With the use of ‘Bisarok – Assam Search Engine’, users would be experiencing a new online environment getting results of their queries related to Assam only.
Built on Google custom search engine, ‘Bisarok’ would be collating and building a database of web properties exclusively of the State.
Explaining the idea behind ‘Bisarok’, RK Rishikesh Sinha who had earlier created a similar custom search engine (‘Bisarei’) exclusively on Bishnupriya Manipuri, said that except Google there was no link to get results, if one sought information, particularly from the list of Assam government websites.
“As the results that Google show up do not meet the requirement, a necessity was felt to come up with a search engine exclusively for Assam,” Sinha said, adding that the search engine would help bring information and knowledge on Assam near to people.
Any web entity related to Assam can be part of ‘Bisarok’ (https://sites.google.com/site/assamsearchenginebisarok/).
Sinha said that still at a nascent stage, ‘Bisarok’ will be graduated as soon as possible after analyzing the response from its early adopters and with their feedback.
