Shubhpuja is one such effort by Delhi-based Saumya Vardhan. The portal offers a religious forum that allows people from all walks of life to conduct pujas and rituals on various occasions. Prior to launching Shubhpuja.com, Saumya worked as an operations and technology consultant with KPMG and Ernst & Young in London. She is an MBA from Imperial College, UK, and she wanted to return to India to ‘contribute in some way to the betterment of society.’ The idea for Shubhpuja came when Saumya was visiting India and during this time, her friend faced a personal loss. Her father had passed away and she faced a lot of problems while arranging for rituals. “There is no place where one can go and find out how to go about the rituals properly,” says Saumya.
