I Used To Hold My Baby In One Hand And Code With Other: Anuradha Bajpai, Founder

#Anuradha_Bajpai and her husband_Manoj_Jindal had no clue that their lives were about to be changed when they paid a regular visit to a bookstore in_Bengaluru.

"We may not buy a book even after reading hundreds of online reviews because you don't know how many of those reviews are... read more genuine. But you'll go for a book if your friend, who has similar interests, recommends a book. This led us to launch a social networking platform where friends could discuss and recommend books," naming #WOODPIE.

But it was still tough on Anuradha. "I used to wake up at 4 am and modify the platform based on users' feedback. I had to run to our daughter whenever she woke up. We couldn't afford a maid and so I had to cook before Manoj left for office at 8 am. It would have been funny to see me standing in the kitchen, holding baby in one hand and coding with the other hand,"

Today, Woodpie has over 10,000 users from 321 Indian cities, 35 US cities and other countries in Europe, South America, Africa, Asia and Australia.
