dont scale up Jugaad, india is doomed then

there could be nothing  farther from truth than the claim in this news. India and Nif India certainly dont want to scale up #jugaad mindset at all; that will be the undoing of indian creative and innovative spirit.

any attempt to get satisfied with make-shift, temporary and chalta hai attitude will never help India get out of morass of mediocrity. Yes, people sometime use second hand parts in developing innovative solutions but that is the way to go forward, because why shoudl entropy be increased by junking components which have still functional life left. Industry imported many old plants to india and then used them for manufacturing various industrial goods. that is fine so long as these plants font pollute more and create waste more than other competing technologies. using second hand parts is not indicative of jugaad mindset. But getting satisfied with a temporary, mediocre solution is indeed jugaad.

majority of grassroots innovators use systematic approach to solev problems, the systems approach they use may be different from ours and thats why lessons in frugality can indeed be learned form them.

many institutions, journalists and some intellectuals continue to create this confusion and we hope that readers soon will become discerning enough to ignore these short-cut approaches to finding solutions of our country

what a great misinterpretation of grassroots innovation movement

i hope readers will make corrections in their mind and avoid situating grassroots innovation movement in the context of jugaad, which is a celebration of makeshift,

a makeshift approach can never help any country, much less India to find long term solution of becoming a creative, compassionate and innovative society

It is also unfortunate the SRISHTI school of design used our collaboration with them to legitimise a bankrupt model for going ahead
