If you are Indian, you can do it

What only Indian can do?

 
JUGAAD!


what doesnt kill you, makes you tipsy

translated  as-erm errr… this word is so Indian in origins, that no other country  has coined an alternative! but to a layman, it means -make shift!

we indians are born with a gene that inculcates jugaad automatically into us.
so from primary class when we say- yaar, mera homework kar de, tiffin le lio mera
to college, bhaiya, ye ciggaret rakhlo. xerox jaldi nikaal dena
to
making maggi using water heaters
to
recycling -circe wale pyaaz(vinegar marinated  onions ) that came with the food delivery
to
using oregano packets from domino’s as a spice in every dish

We Indians, can patent our reusability,alternative thinking and resourcefullness.


Who needs redbull or caffeine when you can just pin yourself to a wall?


HOW IS IT AN ADVANTAGE?

we have an alternative for everything!
be it- a fault in your stars
(called Manglik in Hindi, it translates to- thou marry, thou widowed)
the simplest answer is getting married to a tree or a dog,before you plan your nuptials to someone in flesh and blood


perhaps that is why we flourish wherever we go, specially in a country that has a bad demand-supply ratio in every field.

and  that is why we are the ones behind the biggest aeronautical, space  research, petrochemical, scientific discoveries, because we know the way  around a problem! 




one hot idea!( clearly from an engineer’s mind at 4am at a hostel)



defies everything you have read about power, voltage and sockets and well..electricty.


one cooler+one pair of trousers= two coolers

sky isnot the limit when you have a plunger. you go Girl!


what happens when you take the mother board out of a CPU? 
simple!it becomes a bookshelf.



and not a tear was shed that day!

We’re incredible Indians. And rightly so. Where do you find so many cultures mixing together and marking unity of a different kind? Yes, there are differences and we’re definitely not a perfect country but there are certain things we do that we’re immensely proud of because no other country, not even America, can match up.
We’re young, powerful and are growing as a nation everyday. Here are 19 things Indians can do easily but Americans can’t/don’t. 
 
1. Respect our elders, known or unknown.
I’m not saying Americans don’t respect elders. It’s just that you won’t find Indians calling their elders by their first name now, will you?

2. Live with our parents for as long as we like. 
We hold on to our families forever without any societal pressures of leaving home after turning 18.

3. Pronounce difficult tongue-twisters in different languages.

4. Use water instead of toilet paper.
It’s not like we don’t have toilet paper in India. It’s just that we like our rear ends to be sparkling clean.

5. Eat with our bare hands.
Of course, we know how to use spoons and forks, even chopsticks for that matter. But ma ke haath ka khaana is best consumed like this.

6. Not call all our relatives ‘aunts and uncles’.
Every relative deserves to be distinguished from the other. And we do so without complaining!
