The 39-second video featuring a khatiya (cot) attached to a vehicle, as a substitute for an excavator, soon went viral. Many social media users dubbed the idea “Indian Jugaad”, which translates to “life hack” in English. The tweet has garnered over 16,000 likes and more than 3,000 retweets; some of Mahindra's followers even shared more “jugaad” ideas in the comments.

This is not surprising....
my father made a cooler with an oil cane which costs only 250 rupees. And the interedting thing is that this cooler gives much cooling than a symphony cooler.
And it works with solar energy saves electricity bill.
