Hiraj - Online Baby Journal

With both parents working late hours, there's hardly any time for them to learn parenting.
With most people becoming "internet" glued, internet is where people look at to find out what they dont know!

So that's where Hiraj.com comes in as a personalized online baby journal that helps parents chronicle their child’s life and safely share with friends and family. So if you want to record how you child looked while he took his first step or if you wanted to make an online diary, video gallery or anything which would make you smile when you grow old - Hiraj.com provides a wonderful platform for all of that.

Hiraj.com recently completed the beta phase and will be coming out with lot more features - but the idea is something which i would surely call "iNnovative"


I know i am writing after a gap but that was because i couldnt find one which was innovative enough to be a part of this list.

Seventymm is one of the interesting startups i found and it offers movie rental services to its members across 6 cities in India, namely Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Delhi and Mumbai. The portal offers its subscribers over 18, 000 movie titles to choose from and also offers its consumers flexible subscription options under the three subscription plans - one DVD Basic, one DVD Unlimited and the two DVDs Unlimited plan to choose from. Not only that Seventymm also offers free pick up of movies as per consumers' convenience. The good part is that it has an efficient and reliable logistics infrastructure to which delivers and pick-up movies from the consumers' doorstep absolutely free.

So all that you need to do is login on the website and become a member and you have so many movies at your doorstep.

Ever wondered having an online puja in your place or having a pujari whenever you wanted.

Adhyatam has been able to bring a new term - e-Religion. So now all our religious needs can be fulfilled online & thats what Adyantam aims for. Started by Ajay Goyal from BITS Pilani, Adhyatam also provides live telecast to online puja. And they seems to have gone into details so there is not one or two types of puja available but 64 different types at different rates. Further you can book your pooja by pandit or generically.

Though i liked the concept and it surely is extremely innovative i have a feeling that this will take us further apart from our religion. Its like going through an Online MBA - There's no bonus points in answering which one is better online MBA or the normal one, same ways how much successful Adhyatam can be will depend on how much flexible the audience is. What do you think, is it a good idea?
