Honestly, this portal was not planned. The idea came in fluke while having snacks as the snacks were served on piece of newspaper obituary column page we felt bit disturbed and these thought “cant these be presented in some more respectable and presentable manner which also stays forever and can be accessed globally and be remembered and shared?” These questions made us go about this noble cause.
What difficulties you faced while converting your idea into reality?
It was really a long and difficult time from concept to execution. First of all the brainstorming of the model and features as there was nothing similar to look at took long time, then finding right kind of developers, we crashed the site twice before coming up with the current look also testing of all the features was a hectic exercise, having said that we are happy with the final outcome of the product.
