Necessity is the fuel to innovation, and over the past few days, we have seen a lot of it. As many migrant labourers have been forced to take on roads to go home, they have come up with innovative hacks or say, desi juggads, to do the same.
In a viral video, a man who wanted to ensure his family goes back home along with him, literally attached a ferris wheel to his bike.
The video was shared by Marico Chairman Harsh Mariwala, “Probably not the safest mode of transport. But watch how this man has converted his 2-seater bike into what could be like a 4-seater car,” he wrote.
The date when the video was shot and where it was shot is still unknown. However, the creativity of the person must be appreciated.
As visible in the video, it is a gruelling process to control the ferris as the labourer uses a steering wheel to do the same. When shared on the internet, the video won applauds while many criticised the same.

He's moving his belongings along with his business – Merry go round. Hope he continues his business in his native place. #Lackoftransport
