Customer Review

30 July 2018
In ‘Jugaad Yatra: Exploring the Indian Art of Problem Solving’, award winning investigative journalist and foreign correspondent Dean Wilson objectively looks at ‘jugaad’ and its interesting linkages to India mythological stories and the life experiences of the country’s top industrialists. The author starts by doffing his head to India’s Mangalayaan mission, a successful one at that, made possible with less than the production cost of the space thriller Gravity! But if the reader is expecting a paean to India’s Jugaad DNA, he/she cant get more wrong for the author lays bare the perils of going for short term life hacks and how it can possibly harm development and progress.

While giving examples of jugaad from Indian mythological stories and from Mahabharata, the author makes a telling point that jugaad was necessitated in a new country that emerged after a traumatic partition into a world where it was to develop its foot hold in the development sector. The anecdotes shared by India’s top industrialists who started out by making the best of what they have in hand to the professional attitude taken by another industrialist adds a nice touch of balance.

I found the book an engrossing read with very its insights into the socio politics and cultural fabric of India.
