A video that shows three children playing on a makeshift merry-go-round has won thousands of hearts on Twitter. The old video resurfaced on the microblogging platform last week after being shared by IAS officer Supriya Sahu, and has since gone viral. It shows three children playing on a carousel ride of sorts - constructed out of three pieces of rope tied to a tree stump. The children were filmed running around the stump, each holding a piece of rope and increasing their pace until they swung just a few inches off the ground.
Their makeshift swing and their creativity has earned a ton of praise on social media.
While sharing the video, Mr Sahu reflected that it embodied the saying that it is often the simplest things that bring the most happiness. "The most simple things can bring the most happiness - life lesson by these kids in the video," she wrote while sharing the 22-second clip. Watch it below:

This is not the first time that a jugaad has impressed social media. Last month, a video of two children in Madhya Pradesh, playing on a makeshift see-saw, had also gone viral on Twitter.Click for more trending news
