Anand Mahindra, the chairman of Mahindra Group, has proven his Internet savviness time and again to his followers. Recently, he cracked up his followers on Twitter again by sharing a hilarious yet interesting video of a “khatiya-vator”. And guess what? This “new” machine is basically a cot attached to a construction vehicle.

Talking about the video, Anand Mahindra tweeted: “I think the phrase ‘Necessity is the mother of invention’ was invented by Indians! Here’s a new product our Farm & Construction sectors will have to consider as a replacement for an excavator: A ‘Khatiya-vator’.

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.

Our farmers have invented one more than one ...... Another example .
