"The practice of placing individuals under ‘observation’ is a natural extension of a justice imbued with disciplinary methods and examination procedures. Is it surprising that the cellular prison, with its regular chronologies, forced labour, its authorities of surveillance and registration, its experts in normality, who continue and multiply the functions of the judge, should have become the modern instrument of penality? Is it surprising that prisons resemble factories, schools, barracks, hospitals, which all resemble prisons?"
— Michel Foucault, Discipline and Punish (via omensetters)
"Jugaad is a Hindi word that loosely translates as ‘the gutsy art of overcoming harsh constraints by improvising an effective solution using limited resources.’"
compare with “rasquache” and “MacGyver”. contrast with “wabe sabe”? oh, and “arte povera”…
