No matter how bizarre a hack is, as long as it works it’s absolutely fine. At least that’s what I have learned from people around me. And we Indians seem to have acquired the special talent of being a pro at ‘jugaad’.
Think of the most unimaginable hack possible and chances are that an Indian would have tried and tested that hack to his benefit already. Just like this hack of using cow dung to keep a car cool in the scorching heat. And when I say use it, I mean changing the car’s colour to brown.
FYI, the car in question is a Toyota Corolla Altis, the road price of which starts from Rs 16 lakh (approx).
In what can be rightly called the ‘coolest’ hack ever, a woman in Ahmedabad coated her entire car with cow dung, as the temperature shot up to 45 degrees. Thanks to Facebook user Rupesh Gauranga Das for sharing the pictures with us, and enlightening us with this ingenious hack.
According to his post, the car owner is from Ahmedabad, but the car’s number plate states that the car is from Maharashtra. South Bombay to be specific.
Das wrote in his post, “Best use of cow dung I have ever seen. It’s in Amdavad. To counter 45 degrees heat temperatures and protect car from getting hot, Mrs Sejal shah has plastered her car with cow dung. Getting cool.”
For those wondering how effective the trick is, cow dung is actually a kind of insulator that blocks the heat of the outer surface from getting into the inner surface. That’s the reason a lot of people in rural areas coat the outer walls of their houses with cow dung, to keep their house cool.
