Mahindra recently took to Twitter to share a video of a Mahindra & Mahindra pick up truck that was being used as a make-shift tipper truck for unloading a bunch of logs.
According to reports, the video was shot somewhere in Kerala and shows a group of people manually lifting the front of the truck and tilting it towards the back. Since the truck was already overloaded with the dead logs, it became easier for the people to unload it.
However, the make-shift task was severely criticised by Mahindra, who termed this 'unsafe' and said this 'violates all the safety rules of loading'.
Taking to Twitter he said, "Got this random video today. Crazy. They’ve made this the cheapest possible tipper truck. Violates all safety & loading regulations. Hugely unsafe for those holding the truck up. Yet I marvel at how our people persevere & manage without resources."

The post that went viral, was quick enough to draw various sort of comments from netizens. While many hailed the 'jugaad', others pointed out the dangers of it.

Kya log hai 😱Can learn trust building lessons from the driver.. To get the team to do what they did, knowing an extra rev from him could cost them a few broken bones if not their lives.. #Kerala— Vrinda Pisharody (@vrindapisharody) June 24, 2020

God forbid, but slightly more pressure on accelerator would kill those lifting the truck.— Raunak Khetan (@Khetan1284) June 24, 2020
