A Digital Deific Diary
“Either we progress, hand in hand, learning from our consecrated forefathers, or we endure our lack of knowledge alone.”
The evolution of our species supplements the infinitive expansion of our unified pool of knowledge. Technology has perpetually supported us in safeguarding and spreading this knowledge. It has helped keep us attune to the ideologies of our sagacious ancestors and refine our understanding of their teachings. By allowing us to store inestimable amount of content and facilitating real time sharing, technology has indeed provided us the chance to learn and grow on the inside. Our Web Development Company used a technological thread to stitch further on the knowledge fabric and created a holistic blogging and content assimilating website. Savitri, the poem, is the epical basis of our blogging site savitri.in. We provide devotees, students, scholars, researchers, academicians, artists, seekers with a comprehensive web library a propos of this sacred text by Sri Aurobindo. Savitri.in is intended to be an open platform for followers to connect, collaborate and contribute in promoting the sanctified Savitri atmosphere.
Our client, being a Real Estate and Finance heavy-weight, surprised us with his requirement. But, as we got to know of his immense devotion and passion, we strengthened our resolve of creating an appropriate product for this divine cause. This epic contains 12 books which are divided into different number of Cantos which contain the poetic lines. The enormity of content and its apposite organization was a major challenge. We implied the Drupal CMS to support us in the administration and multiple usage of common content. The following product centric customizations have been implemented, which make this blogging site unique:
- Dynamic Book Rendering – Each of the 23811 lines of the book has been dynamically formatted. All twelve books have been programmed to appear dynamically in the Book section. Our developers have dexterously maintained book titles, book sections, canto titles and alternative text of lines in our database.
- Dynamic Linking- The site allows you to locate quoted lines (book, canto and line number) from all blogs on the books and conversely display all blogs where specific lines from the book have been mentioned. Our team created a background API for this, so whenever Admin posts a blog in savitri.in, our background API finds book lines in that particular blog and replaces them as links.
- Audio Tagging- Text lines are auto highlighted for you in sync with the recitations from the book, which have been pre-stored as audio files.
- Live Video Streaming- This functionality enables admin to provide live video recording of blogs for visitors. A visitor can see live streaming of events and download preceding streams.
- Content Reusability- Users can effortlessly reuse the same content in different places without uploading. Our team generating embedded codes for videos, and links for audios and blogs to make them reusable.
- Preserving formatting of Text- You can copy text from web to word document and vice versa easily, our developers have ensured that the text formatting is preserved in both cases.
- Dictionary APIs- You don’t have to look elsewhere for the meaning of those complicated words. Two dictionary APIs have been integrated to the website.
- Feature blog- Provision of a special featured blog section on the front page.
- IP address tracking- Admin can get details (Location, county, zip code, latitude, longitude) of all IP addresses that visit savitri.in.
- Hindi fonts- We are supporting “Kruti Dev 010”, “Kruti Dev 011”, “DevLys 010”, “DevLys 010”, “mangal” and “Arial Unicode ms” . However most blogging sites supports only “Mangal” font for Hindi blogs because it is a Unicode font.
- Broadcasting- This functionality enables admin to send instance messages to all editors, sub-editors and registered users.

This epic poem reaffirms our notions on the power of sanctified Love. Its characters depict identifiable people, thus we can relate to the parables and learn lucidly. This website not only safeguards the poem and its numerous renditions, but also offers disciples the chance to celebrate Savitri’s insightful magnificence. Our PHP Web Development Company prides itself of developing a medium for the smooth transmission of these pure purposes.
