Fitness equipment can be quite expensive sometimes, especially treadmills, that can cost thousands of bucks, but did you know you could make your own DIY treadmill at home using oil? Well, for fun's sake, Yes! A video of a man creating a "low-cost" treadmill at home is going viral. The video was shared by Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Chairperson and MD of Biocon who has also received Padma Shri & Padma Bhushan awards. In the video, you can see a man who initially spills some oil on the floor and then tops it up with some sprinkles of water. He then mixes it well and checks if the floor is slippery enough. After this, he starts running on the area as one would do on a treadmill. This "low-cost treadmill" video is going viral ever since Shaw shared it with the caption: "Low cost treadmill invented in Gujarat! The gujju brain knows how to save money!"

However, even though Kiran Majumdar Shaw had initially said that the man was Gujju aka Gujrati, some of the people online corrected her by informing that the is actually from Brazil. Nobody has taken ownership of the video yet.
