Nobody can beat us Indians when it comes to jugaad. But while most of us do it because we are lazy, a few of us actually use that talent to create something productive out of it.


Case in point, a  recent video of a farmer had gone viral on Twitter, showing him sitting on a bike-like device attached to a coconut tree. On pressing a button, the device goes up in a controlled motion, making it easier to pick coconuts.

The farmer, Ganapathi Bhat, is a resident of Sajipamooda village of Bantwal, a region between Mangaluru and Puttur districts of Karnataka.


Now the best part of this story is that this video was also recognised by the Chairman of Mahindra and Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra. 


He tagged the President of Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd Farm Equipment Sector on the tweet and suggested that the team have a closer look so that they can market the machine.

How cool is that, right?
