–  Designers of the Ahhaa App!

A chance meeting between two highly motivated persons has led to the creation of an app that will take the world of technology by storm.

The Ahhaa app can be downloaded on your playstore or Itunes from the website The two persons
behind this technology are Diane Bacchus-Quddus and Ashwin Srisailam. Diane is from Guyana and Ashwin is from India and their collaboration has not only crossed boundaries but has created a sense of awareness and understanding that will broaden and eventually link up the world.

Diane was born in New Amsterdam, in Berbice, Guyana. Her mom is Patricia Singh and her dad is Tasmallie Bacchus, also known as Boyo. Diane is the youngest of eight children and  she had a lot of responsibility entrusted on her but she thrived on it. Diane attended primary school in New Amsterdam after which she articulated to Berbice Educational Institute. Her best subjects were in the sciences and the teachers were supportive. Diane says that New Amsterdam was an interesting experience.  
‘ Life was hardly a bed of roses. We came from a big family and at age nine I had to help out the family. I would sell bread and cakes in the village and my world was small and narrow.’
