Anushka Manchanda is a pro at jugaad
Like any good Indian hustler, she knows how to work the system
“You learn one thing in India, and it’s called jugaad. It takes you through all the shit you have to deal with on an everyday basis.” We know multi-hyphenate Anushka Manchanda is an ace music producer, editor, advocate of veganism and ex-headliner member of Indian girl band Viva! (Forever) — but we’d take her words of wisdom over any gyaani babaji’s any day.
Jugaad is in fact the only way you can survive the motherland (or planet Earth), or in this case, smartly answer our questions. When asked who she would write one last letter to, on her deathbed, she ‘cheated’ and picked the Internet, because, “Cheating, Cheating. I would write it to the Internet. I’d basically write everyone’s name on it, address it to everyone and send it out there.”
Watch as Anushka Manchanda, who’d like to be reincarnated as a ladybug because ‘they’re so cute’, takes on Tweak Multitasker, samples a variety of yuck-to-yum tasting ‘shots’, answers all our questions and casually drops pearls of wisdom along the way.
The one question she’d like to ask God (“That concept itself is up for discussion”, the singer intervenes) is one that we find ourselves asking every time we read the news, interact with humans and just generally, live — ‘Why are humans such ch*****?
That also explains why the one thing that makes herself feel completely safe is being fully ‘armed’ with whatever she needs is because she hates depending on people.
