How would you experience if some person provides you with the chance to be the ruler or the sovereign of a particular region? Even if it’s a piece of land, it would still sense appealing cool, exactly? Hell, it’s an early days vision of the majority of kids.
However, most of us have accepted the truth that this vision is most likely to stay displeased.
But as it gets up, one of us didn’t stop on this rather unbelievable dream and attained something that the majority of us could never even visualize. An Indian guy, Suyash Dixit just turned the ruler of a piece of land, which lies between Egypt and Sudan. Well, he announced himself as the ruler but fairly so.
Puzzled? Here is a clearer depiction of how precisely he administered to attain this achievement.
So, the piece of land that Dixit has announced himself to be the ruler of is in actuality a free region i.e. it fits in no nation. The region is named Bir Tawil and is located on the South of Egypt’s boundary and the North of Sudan’s edge.
Now, the trouble arises as Egypt tracks the 1899 border determined by the British administration at the time of its colonization however, Sudan chases the 1902 edge as its authorized border. Hereafter, both the nations believe that this strip of land fits into the other nation and so, it is a free piece of land.
He explains his trip, “I travelled 319KM (to and fro) in far desert with no roads to claim this unclaimed land of Bir Tawil. It was an epic journey starting from Abu Simbel at 4 am. I took help from a local driver Mustafa for the car and most part of driving. When I told him about the plan first he thought I am crazy but then he agreed (yeah I paid him a lot). I and Suyog spent 2 nights planning a highly optimised route for my travel where we can take the car.”
If you are viewing how simple it is to go up to that region and claim it as your personal, we will stop you right there. He clarified the dangers involved in addition.
“Just to tell how dangerous this plan was, the route that I took is under Egyptian military (it is an international border) and is an area of terrorists so the military has a “shoot at sight” orders. But, if your bucket list ideas are not scary enough then they are not worth trying! And yes you need permissions to even enter the route that takes to this place. We got in 3 conditions, no photos of military areas (which is almost everything), you be back in the single day and you do not carry valuables. We drove for 6 hours straight in the middle of the desert and barren lands and crossing 1 military base to the location.”
