A QR code placed on a tombstone at a church in Kerala’s Thrissur helps one to relive and reminisce on the creative work rendered by a doctor, who died young at just 26.
The parents of Dr Ivin Francis decided to place the QR code on the tomb of the youngster at St Joseph Church, Kuriyachira in the central Kerala district to give people a glimpse into his world as they can watch videos of his performances by scanning the code.
His family from Kuriyachira has designed a web page containing all the works of Ivin and linked it with the QR code.
Son of Francis, an officer with a private company in Oman, and Leena, principal of the Indian School in Oman, Ivin was well-versed in music and sports, and found time to indulge in his passion along with his medical course. He was popular among the community with his performances.
Ivin’s unfortunate death came in 2021 when he collapsed and died while playing badminton.

“We wanted his life to be a motivation for everyone and that is how we thought of placing a QR code on his tomb,” Francis said.
