    @ktkaushik Thanks. I will try to get in touch with him.

    Judging by the response here, I guess adoption rate of graph databases is not very high in our region. I have decided to use it as a single all purpose database. If I run into any issues, I will post here.

    @Rohit-Agarwal There is a lot of scope in building tools for software industry. Even, I may end up doing a startup in this space.

    Number of startups should and must increase if India and China has to become competitive on the global scale. However, IMHO, startups cannot become a source of mass employment in the years to come. Rate of unemployment will increase due to rapid growth in technology.

    I read that number in yesterday''s Hindustan Times.
    Seems like the government is behind this push.

    This is how the media operates. These days every other project or experiment gets called a startup. 10,000 startups a day means over 3.5 crore startups within a decade. With the pace technology is progressing they won't be able to create that many jobs, let alone startups.

    @Rohit-Agarwal I agree with your assessment that there is a need for tools startups. In fact, I am working on one such project at the moment. It allows software developers to embed audio and video comments that describes a piece of code into their source code along with text comments. It also gives developers the ability to store all the research they did for writing a particular piece of code.

    However, I must also warn against doing a startup just because there is an opening in the market for a particular service. IMO, a person can only do 2 to 3 startups in his/her life. One must choose carefully where you choose to invest your time and do things that are genuinely valuable.

    Most forums on the internet use text as a medium for discussion, which IMHO ,is a bit outdated. I think we should be using audio and video based discussions(real-time if possible) as they are far more productive. Technologies like webrtc, etc. have made the technology requirements for such forums quite minimal too. In my experience, few lines of text input by anyone is hardly enough to get complex points across.

    Thanks for your responses. I was worried about this post getting flagged as it had a "stackoverflowy" appeal.

    Side note:
    Cypher language, created by Neo4j, team is one of the most elegant languages I have seen so far. Although you have to use text to write your code , the language is essentially graphical in nature. I would encourage others in the community to learn it and find if the principles used to design this language can be used to design normal programming languages. I can definitely imagine a 'uml to code mapper' being built on the same principles.

    I am working on a project that has a strong social networking component and I am considering using a graph database called Neo4j for it. I find the cypher query language, of Neo4j, quite interesting. However, I have never used it before professionally. I am well aware of the pros of using them. I am just worried about hidden gotchas.
    Can you please share your opinions on graph databases in general?
