Krishnakant, I am a little surprised since you said you were totally blind. What would that 
change anyway ? besides, imagine an HTML document with 200 lines of code wrapped inside a 
body tag. Positioning your cursor on the opening <body> you wouldn't be able to see 
the closing </body> tag 200 lines further, same goes for long lists or tables. It 
might only be useful if both the beginning and ending tags are on the same page. I don't 
know if there's a mode that does that to be honest.
Yes, it does not make a big difference to me as a blind programmer.
But my sighted colleagues who work with me will need it because they too plan to shift to Emacs. Besides, Emacspeak (the screen reader for Emacs ) reads paired completion, but one has to use keyboard shortcuts to get it. So the first reason is more valid. yes you are right about <body> but for <div> it is a great idea because often nested divs confuse a developer when trying to figure out which one closes where.
Happy hacking.

If you want, you can also check autocomplete-mode as well as ac-html which 
should also do what you want (suggest completions as you type).
