Jugaad (जुगाड), a term which in India means a lot than the rest of the world. Governments in India survives on this. This term literally cannot be defined in English but, I will give my best shot to explain it. It can be a small trick which can make a huge difference. Its actually a work around, which is used due to lack of resources. It can be used to arrange something or doing something anyhow (Legally or Illegally doesn’t matter). Its a quick fix for any situation, a temporary solution. And a person who does it is called a Jugaadu/Jugaadoo (जुगाडू). Based on this philosophy I plan to propose a theory which I call as a “Jugaad Theory”, this will be explained in my posts later. This theory will lead to “Jugaad Management” which I plan to give in future, after my thorough study based on real life experiences. It will be “Key” in future with increasing lack of resources. I request all my readers to kindly give their personal experiences on Jugaad, which will help in my research.

I am not a Philosopher, neither a Thinker & nor a Management Guru. I don’t have much of work experience, just started with my career after my MBA. I do have passion for Aviation for which too I have a blog. Let the world know Indian Concepts which don’t need Management Philosophy. Keep checking posts on my theory of “Jugaad Management”.

    Quite an interesting thought – The “Jugaad theory”….yes truly in life its about Jugaad……in all its touch points in life….a Jugaad for education, marriage,
    holdiay ….et al ……and Jugaad for starting on our own…..all the best into evolving your jugaad theory…

    its not a theory rather its a life experience …jugad is not something that is Indian Only rather its a world wide acknowledged ..Jugad is just a hindi word for the same .
    its the theme of life its the essence of world beacuse everyone knows that they cant afford to have every luxury of life at the same time …
    but this topic would be nice one if treated with an eye on experimenting with the concept rather than thinking that its unique to India ..

    Thanx !!!

About this blog…

I am very closely associated with the term "Jugaad". Natively being from a place where this term is widely used, I never gave too much importance to it. But then I realised the actual potential of "Jugaad". Keep commenting on my posts.

I have another blog on my passion i.e. Aviation. You can check it on (popular as Rahul's blog on Indian Aviation).
