Patna, Aug 30:Thinking out of the box, Patna brothers Nilay and Ankur Singh are all set for a heady competition with Mark Zuckerberg's 'Facebook'.

The 'desi' portal has 5-in-1 features, which takes it a step higher than 'Facebook'. "Our website contains a social networking website, a market place, quiz application, forum and blog. All these applications are involved in our website in our system," Nilay Singh told media channels.

However, short of finances the duo say that there is still a long way to go to actually compete with 'Facebook'.

Already under immense financial constrains, Nilay quit his engineering so that his brother could complete his studies. He, however, did not sit idle. He learnt web-designing from a local computer centre and the their story got a twist.

"We are facing challenges on the financial front. We need funds to increase server capacity," Ankur said. Requesting for investors who would be interested in the project, the duo show a promising career ahead. And more promising is their website, which has already attracted 22,000 users. But, much to their dismay their server started crashing as it lacked capacity to handle so many viewers and members.

"We are planning to launch this on a huge scale and we need some investors to invest in our website so that we can market our website to a certain level to advance to a big entrepreneurs from Bihar," Nilay said.
