Bending the rules is second nature for most Indians. Our ancestors have taught us well! Doing things the conventional way is just not our style. And, that is a good thing, because it gives us room for original, fresh and outside-the-box thinking, or “Jugaad thinking”. terms ‘ No matter what the situation is, we Indians can find a quick fix or Jugaad to get the job done. It never fails us, does it?
For those who are new to the concept (though, we highly doubt it, considering the number of doctors and engineers our nation churns out), this example should make it clear as crystal – and give you a good laugh.
No burglar will ever attempt to unlock this car, because who knows what else the owner is capable of! #Jugaad
