Our darling mothers, dietitians and health experts have over the years emphasised the role of vegetables. But did you know that apart from adding colour to our plates and providing us with all the nutrition, vegetables can be used for musical purposes as well? Industrialist Anand Mahindra recently shared a video of a musician, who transformed a carrot into a clarinet. The video, shared on Saturday, featured an Australian musician, who has been identified as Linsey Pollak. Putting his creativity on display, Pollak drilled a big hole in a carrot. On the sides, he made six holes at an equal distance from each other. Next, he peeled the top layer in order to make it look like a sharp, cylindrical shape. Pollak fitted a white funnel at the bottom and a saxophone’s mouthpiece on top. And, voila the clarinet is ready.
If you are doubting the functioning of the carrot clarinet, the Australian musician played the instrument in front of the audience. The melodious tune impressed the people, who cheered for Pollak’s talent.
“The message I got from this? Find music in everything around you…,” Anand Mahindra wrote alongside the video. He also added the hashtag “Sunday vibes.”

The video has so far clocked over 4 lakh views on the microblogging site.
One of the users stated that turning a carrot into a musical instrument might be new for the western world but not for Indians. He wrote, “This may be new for the western world but not for us.”
This may be new for western world but not for us. In Marathi there is famous old saying,”गाजराची पुंगी, वाजली तर वाजली, नाहीतर मोडून खाल्ली”, it literally means make Carrot nose flute, if performs well ok, else just break and eat it. ????— jwbhabal???????? (@jwbhabal) March 5, 2023
Another said, “In addition to being a delicious and healthy food, I had no idea that carrots could also be used as a musical instrument. It’s a great way to stay inspired and energised.”
