"Seeking spirituality online" – Deccan Herald, 11th Jun 2014

Almost every Hindu household or enterprise has the presence of a divinity. A Ganesha idol at the entrance and yantras in the puja room are not unusual for these are believed to re-instill faith and spread positivity. 

It is on the basis of resurrecting this belief that online portals have started dedicating separate sub-categories to articles related to spirituality. And to enhance the experience of divinity, there is also a website that offers online booking of prasad!”Each year the Karni Mata Temple in Rajasthan gets double the number of devotees which makes it difficult to even enter the temple precincts, leave apart worshipping,” says Goonjan Mall, CEO, onlineprasad.com sharing his experience which inspired him to come up with the idea of “blending technology with spirituality”.

Says Goonjan, “In any case, when you come back from a spiritual sojourn, you do share the prasad with your relatives and colleagues. Similarly, our representatives act as relatives who offer the prasad in your name at the temple of your choice,” and later deliver it to your house within five to six days.
The entrepreneurial venture of this BITS Pilani alumnus is “doubling every three months” compelling him to create space for puja accessories too. Other websites source Deity idols, puja thali, kalash, diya, and other accessories from merchants across India.
