2. Easy one. Identify this genre of vehicle 😉

Ans.: Jugaad

Jugaad are locally made motor vehicles that are used mostly in small villages as a means of low cost transportation in India. “Jugaad” is also a colloquial Hindi word that can mean an innovative fix, sometimes pejoratively used for solutions that bend rules, or a resource that can be used as such or a person who can solve a vexatious issue. It is used as much for enterprising street mechanics as for political fixers. In essence, it is a tribute to native genius, and lateral thinking.

Jugaad vehicles cost around Rs. 20,000 (less than US$ 400). They are known for having poor brakes and can not go beyond 60 km/h. They operate on diesel fuel and are just ordinary water pump sets converted into engines.

The brakes of these vehicles very often fail and one of the passengers jumps down and applies a manual wooden block as a brake. These vehicles do not have any vehicle registration plate as they are not registered with the Regional Transport Office (RTO). Hence, they end up not paying any road tax.
