Jugaadu/Jugaads are words or rather concepts that have developed over a period of time. Thus as we went by various articles in magazines, newspapers, internet tc. And also as we spoke to people from various backgrounds we realized that this word not only has a wide usage but also a variety of meanings to its credit. Lets see

Jugaad is a colloquial hindi word that means a quick or easy fix or a resource that can be used as is. Earlier this word had a stigma attached to it - a slight connotation of sly, unfair and cunning behavior was attached to this word. Gradually with what s called the standardization of language by the linguists this word has upgraded to a more popular meaning.

"Jugaad" now refers to creative improvisation and finding alternatives and ways of doing improbable things. Jugaad has nothing to do with the kind of education one has or grooming up that one gets. It rather tells us more about the ability of a person to think out of the box and optimize resources in the best possible way.

And this is exactly what Jugaadu team wishes to carry forward through the site.
