Chitramrit Website

You already know that the Chitramrit project is dedicated to developing visual contents about Swami Vivekananda and Sri Ramkrishna. The scope of work and overall idea behind the Chitramrit project was getting expanded. In fact, it is still developing and maturing. So, it came to my mind to have it published on a dedicated website. I decided to buy a domain name and hosting for the website.

Not to my surprise, the domain name ‘chitramrit.com’ was available as it is unique. I bought the domain and hosting plan from bluehost.com (which is the current host for my office’s website advaitastudios.com too). After that having the website running was comparatively easy, as I am already aware of web design in general and also using tools like WordPress. It was the 8th of Feb 2019 when I bought and ran the first webpage. Coincidentally, it was ‘Ganesh Jayanti‘ on that day, which I came to know later, as a good surprise. So we can say that the ‘Online’ start is good.

I used the ‘WordPress‘ as my primary content management system.  Since I have used WordPress for several years now.  The setup was very easy.

On top of WordPress, I used ‘Divi’ theme.  Divi is a really great website builder and I have already used it in Advaita Studios official website as well as my other projects.

You can find more about Divi theme on the elegant themes page here: Divi by Elegant Themes

The initial setup was very easy.  Then I added more detailed pages and put some actual work in progress status.  Now the website’s current version is good enough for public visibility.

I also drew a small logo for the website. Till this point, I was completely unthoughtful of the logo. But as I started adding the website header I realised the need for a good logo. I searched the web for various concepts for the logo, liked few ones. I wanted to have a small flower-like logo as a symbol of an offering from me to the Lord. I tried to draw a small logo in apple keynote just to keep it simple and fast. After a few alterations, I concluded a design for now. I made multiple versions of it including ‘white on alpha’ and ‘black on alpha’ and quickly added on the header menu.

Thrilled to announce Chitramrit.com

It’s been many months that I was planning for such a massive project.  This project is really my dream project. Initially, it was really vague but I think it’s taking some shape now.  Allow me to introduce ‘chitramrit.com’

Chitramrit-Logo-Design-v04-BLK on WHT h400

‘Chitramrit’ is about the Chronicles of Swami Vivekananda, Gospels of Sri Ramkrishna.  It is an endeavour to virtually reconstruct the stories and events that actually took place, as part of the divine play of Sri Ramkrishna, Holi Mother, Swami Vivekananda and others.  The objective of this project is to produce ‘academically useful’ and ‘historically accurate’, visual representation of events based on stories of Sri Ramkrishna and his divine companions.

I am already working on this since 2011. And recently through ‘Advaita Studio’s passionate team, we have already started developing preliminary work.

I am currently sorting out all the things I am intending to do.  There are lot many things that I want to talk about.  In coming time, I will post more updates on the project.

Till then please visit the dedicated website: ‘chitramrit.com’

Thanks for the support
