Every Indian knows the meaning of Jugaad, It’s something related to Hack, and Indians are really good at Jugaad Technology. According to Wikipedia “Jugaad is a colloquial Hindi word that can mean an innovative fix or a simple work-around, sometimes pejoratively used for solutions that bend rules, or a resource that can be used as such, or a person who can solve a complicated issue. It is used as much to describe enterprising street mechanics as for political fixers.

This meaning is often used to signify creativity to make existing things work or to create new things with meager resources.”   It also means a makeshift solution or a creative improvisation, jugaad is the science, art, and philosophy of what makes India tick. Have any problem which will be sorted out after experimentation & come up with a jugaad to fix it.
