      Thanks for your comment.
      As u can see we are updating the information every day and we are trying to put as much as possible. However Jainism is such a vast and a deep subject that putting all information in just one year is not possible. Yes it cab be made faster if people like you could also contribute by way of information. Like if u hv stories on mahavir bhagwan which you want to be included here , you can mail us at so that many more can read it
