The founders of First Step Projects - Deep Bajaj, Mohit Bajaj and Rahul Anand - came up with this brilliant idea when faced by the lack of proper restrooms during a road trip. Thanks to them, w omen can actually buy some peace of mind (to some extent, won't you say?) now.

Though products like PeeBuddy entered the Indian market through eBay a while back, PeeBuddy is the first Indian venture of its kind. Also, it is competently priced at 120₹ for a pack of five in comparison for about 1400₹ for a pack of a brand like GoGirl.
