Desi Jugaad: In fact, we keep seeing the different types of jugaads done by the power company to pull the power line. Somewhere on a house with the help of a piece of wood, somewhere bamboo or a bat burying the wire, we easily stop laughing. In contrast to all this, seeing the jugaad done by the electricity company in Betul district of Madhya Pradesh, on the one hand, you will be laughing and on the other hand, seeing this deadly negligence, you will be forced to wash your head.
You can see this unique view of Jugaad technology of the power company on the access road of village Akhtwara of Khedi Sanwaligarh Gram Panchayat located near the district headquarters. Here electricity department has supplied 11000 volt electricity to the farmers’ fields. For this, instead of installing an electric pole on the main road at one place, this jugaad has been done.
Here, the power company has installed 3 insulators on a mango tree by pruning the branches. These dangerous wires have been pulled with the help of these insulators. Surprisingly, this mango tree is also not dry but a completely green tree. If the attention of those passing by goes towards this, then they see it with great surprise. Seeing this scene, it comes out of his mouth that this is the limit of negligence. In such a situation, a big accident can happen here at any time.
Actually, this tree is small. Mangoes also grow on it. The children of the village also come near the tree for these mangoes. It is not only near the population of the village but also very close to the power distribution center. Despite this, the company officials never considered it necessary to pay attention to this. This is the reason why this tree remains a great threat. The villagers demanded several times to install electric pole here, but the result turned out to be inconclusive.
