People around the world make several things out of discarded household items and clothes at home. Our country where ‘jugaad’ is the go-to way to turn something old and mundane into useful things, a new video showing something similar is now viral.
In a video posted on Twitter by author and screenwriter Advaita Kala, two men can be seen using an old saree to make rope out of it. As the 1 minute 53 seconds video clip goes on, one of the men rips a saree into different parts and then proceeds to tear them into shreds.
In the following moments, the other person goes on to fasten the pieces of the saree to some hooks which are attached to a contraption attached to a motorcycle. After a few twirls, the saree pieces were entwined together to become a strong rope.
‘India, you never fail to amaze me with your spirit of innovation- and making a go of ‘what if!’,’ read Kala’s caption for the video.
