Jugaad Innovation is a book about having a versatile and an economical outlook towards innovation. The book starts with the story of Mitticool’s invention by Mansukh Prajapati. Mansukh Prajapati, an Indian living in the village of Ramakrishna Nagar, Gujarat is a trained potter with minimal education. When an earthquake struck his village in the year 2001 he came across this story, published in his local newspaper about the calamity along with which was a photo of broken “mitti” (earthen) pots which read “Poor man’s fridge broken.” This was because the villagers used these earthen pots to store cool water. The caption of the photo which was supposed to be witty sparked an idea in Prajapati’s head. He contemplated the use of clay to make a “refrigerator” which could work without electricity and thus was affordable so that the villagers could use to store their fruits and vegetables to keep them fresh. He named his invention Mitticool, “mitti” meaning earth. The fridge worked in a way that the water in its top compartment moved through its walls and created an evaporation effect that would cool the food in the bottom compartment. 

Mansukh Prajapati considered the limitation of no electricity as an opportunity to innovate something to overcome something rather than a complication.
