Vision/Guideline for 2012 :

Q1. Being an entrepreneur, is it a different feeling?    
A : Yes quite different than a routine job, its very challenging as well as exciting. Entrepreneurship offers freedom but also offers lots of challenges too.

Q2. What is your goal in life?
A : To be happy and bring smile on the faces of everyone as often as possible.

Q3.Why did you decide to become an entrepreneur? Why did you not pursue a regular job?
A : Both of us were working in managerial cadre with hefty salaries. Until 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.

Q4. How did the bump across this idea? What's the story behind the name of the company?
A : The name Shradhanjali.com suits the best for the memorial services we offer we can't get more relevant word than this when we talk about memorial, tributes and homage being Indian. Though we have other domains called shreejisharan.com eshradhanjali.com, jannatnashin.com and marhum.com too.

Q5. Can you tell us something about the initial years- what kind of challenges, struggles did you face?
A : Developing such portal without having any reference was a big challenge,  developing web was also big challenge before coming up with the current look of shradhanjali.com we had to crash two previous looks.

Q6. What was the turning point in your business /career?
A : The idea itself is so big and exciting and offers us to serve entire community. I think this idea only made us go for entrepreneurship; otherwise we were happy with the career we were leading.

Q7. Can you brief us about how is it different from other companies in the same field?
A : Well, there are no such companies offering these service as we do. Yes, there are lot many IT companies providing other services. The only difference which we can quote is we don't stick to any rules and offer freedom to the agencies and technical out sourced staff.
