Every now and then, Anand Mahindra keeps posting pictures of common people with innovative ideas and smart inventions.
And today was no different.
He posted a video of a man sitting on a machine that cleans the floor as it moves forward.
I have long advocated that india can’t settle only for ‘jugaad’ (make-do)& has to shoot for ‘jhakaas’ (Mumbai slang for ‘brilliant’)Still, I would like to create a museum of these fascinating jugaad devices somewhere. Maybe at Mahindra Reaearch Valley in Chennai? @RajanWadhera1 ? pic.twitter.com/JBAtieZwdr— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) June 22, 2018
He mentioned that even though he doesn’t like jugaads, it’s really impressive when they are innovative like this one.
People from the remotest areas of India have caught the business magnate’s attention on multiple occasions before, proving that you need skills to be an engineer and not a degree.
Like this one guy, who had modified his auto into a Scorpio.
Iconic. A way to ‘Rise.’ Thanks for sharing this.Can you help locate him? I’d like to buy it for our museum & give him 4 wheels in return.. https://t.co/uwQ5wYcDpW— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) March 19, 2017
Anand Mahindra was so impressed by his creation that he gifted him a brand new commercial four-wheeler, in exchange of that.
The auto-turned-SUV now sits in Mahindra’s company museum.
A lot of people on Twitter appreciated him for his efforts towards making these ideas popular.
It’s a brilliant idea to preserve such talented art!— DopeInderr (@DopeInderr) June 22, 2018
We can use the idea, modify it. Make a smaller rotor, more brushes and save on huge money buying big foreign machines. Guzzling diesel.— SIDHARTHA BAJPAI (@SidharthaBajpai) June 22, 2018
Zarur sir!! I would love and can even pay to see them!— Raj Bhanawat (@rajbhanawat) June 22, 2018
Great idea. “If #Necessity is the mother of all invention, #discontent is the father of all progress”!!Discontent or sheer wastage of energy brings in these creative ideas. #jugaad is what we will continue to see, specially in the poor third world. Lower in value & cost.— Capt Mrinal (@CaptMrinalC) June 22, 2018
Resp sir nice idea even a jugad competition 4 swach Bharat abhiyan can make wonders— ashish dagwar 🇮🇳 (@ashish_dagwar) June 22, 2018
