New website is live!

Anand Charity's new website is live! The website is easy-to-use and allows us to scale without much effort. The website also seemlessly integrates with our blog - the blog was a separate entity previously. It also integrates many of the Web 2.0 features and ties in very well with our presence on social networking websites.

We hope that you enjoy using the website as much as we have enjoyed creating it. Your suggestions and comments are welcome.
