I pretty much agree with the statement that "There is nothing Relational cannot do over a nonrelational DB".

But I was working in a company which owns a famous Property Portal where we sell custom made portals based variety of features.
These Features include, search on any field in the entity or database.

If we chose Relational DB for this, creating indexes and taking peculiar measures would be much expensive and harder. This is why we went for Elasticsearch.
