During my time at BOOKMARK, I was lucky enough to interview Dean Nelson, investigative journalist, foreign corespondent and author of Jugaad Yatra: Exploring the Indian Art of Problem Solving.
Jugaad translates to ‘a flexible approach to problem-solving that uses limited resources in an innovative way’ and throughout his book, Nelson investigates the way in which jugaad impacts on India and its people.
If this is a book you are eager to get your hands on, unfortunately you won’t be able to pick up a copy from book shops within the UK. Jugaad Yatra is published in India, which means your best option is to search for places to buy it online.
