We're at a point where the urban English-speaking Indian population is almost all online.The next billion Indians online all communicate via Indian languages. Mooshak was created with the singular aim of making the Internet fun and relevant for this large, untapped segment. At Mooshak, we want to connect and engage Indians in their own language. And that presents problems in various domains, from creativity in content creation, to creating a highly scalable platform, to applying techniques in AI and NLP in Indian languages to understand what people are saying and react to what they want.
Mooshak is architected to scale. Irrespective of the number of followers, the read time for a feed remains constant. We achieve this by using distributed message queues and a distributed computing engine and some nifty caching!
On the client side, where we have an Android and web app.
