"Umeed pe duniya kayam hai aur India ki umeed jugaad pe."

As Indians we know this to be true. We not only do the best jugaads possible but also take pride in it. And why shouldn't we? Innovation is a hallmark of excellence and we certainly excel in this field. We don't need to follow the conventional way of doing things. It's about being different from the rest and that is what we are.
