Indian farmers usually make desi jugaad to drive away birds and animals to prevent them from destroying the crops. Farmers usually use earthen pots and sticks to create a structure similar to that of human beings. However, a recent video of a scarecrow has created quite a stir online.
A 9-second viral video was shared by a username Kaptan Hindustan on the microblogging site with the caption "Next level scarecrow", has garnered over five lakh views and more than six thousand shares. The scarecrow that is mounted on a stick is wearing a red scarf, gloves, green sweater and blue skirt.

The scarecrow can be seen placed on top of a bicycle that is attached to a spring at the bottom. As the wind blows, the scarecrow attached to the spring starts swinging around in place. Former cricketer Virender Sehwag also shared the video on his Instagram page with the caption, "Not just a scarecrow, but a sure shot treatment for constipation."
