Used and Abused...

I wonder at times, how in India, we keep reusing things... take for instance this CEAT tire which has been repaired using nuts and bolts for reuse.

It was a part of the rear axle which takes the maximum load in the truck, and this was a very smart thing to do... if because of the load, this one bursts, the other three would still manage a distance vs. a situation when this is a front tire and would cripple the truck till the replacement is arranged... street smartness! Did I hear someone saying Jugaad Technology?
