Saraswati e-kit ready to click

"Buying all puja items is a tiring exercise, as I have realised from personal experience. One needs to make an effort to get everything that goes into performing a ritual the way it should be. But there is no quality control in the para shops and that is what we have set out to address, besides offering convenience," said Sourjya.

This one-stop virtual solution to your buying needs for every puja includes standard "kits" for each occasion, be it Narayan, Laxmi or Ganesh Puja. Puja-specific paraphernalia like kosha kushi, brass coconut and incense stands will be sold too.

According to one estimate, puja items are a $30-billion business. From Ganesh Chaturthi to Karva Chauth, there is now a hamper for almost every ritual.

Customers who have already bought from other online stores or portals say convenience and quality are the two main factors. "Most of puja items for Saraswati Puja may be available at dashakarma stores, but quality is an issue. Online solves this problem," said Pubali Hazra, a homemaker from Kasba who has planned hathey khori (initiation into studies) for her three-year-old son Rishav during Saraswati Puja.

Sourjya's store isn't the only one. Metro trawled e-commerce site Amazon and found a Saraswati Puja kit that includes a hand-crafted clay idol for a little more than Rs 1,200."Buying all puja items is a tiring exercise, as I have realised from personal experience.
