At some point of time in our lives, we’ve all fantasized about being a ruler and living life on a land that is solely ours. While we’ve settled that dream with declaring ‘My house, my rules‘, Suyash Dixit actually found a land without any jurisdiction to become a king.
His quest ended at Bir Tawil, a strip of land between Egypt and Sudan which is not owned by any country. He took to Facebook to share his triumph.
His post read nothing short of a Game of Thrones’s royal introduction.
I, Suyash Dixit, first of my name and the protector of the realm, declare myself as the king of “Kingdom of Dixit”. I call myself, King Suyash First from today. I declare this unclaimed land of Bir Tawil as my country from now to the eternity of time. I pledge to continue to work for the prosperity of my people of the country and this motherland.
The man actually researched the customs on how to claim lands and then made the journey.
I traveled 319KM (to and fro) in far desert with no roads to claim this unclaimed land of Bir Tawil. This 800 sq.miles of land belongs to no country. It is the only place on earth where humans can live and survive but is not a part of any state/country. Following the early civilization ethics and rule, if you want to claim a land then you need to grow crops on it. I have added a seed and poured some water on it today. It is mine.
He accounted his journey in his post.
It was an epic journey starting from Abu Simbel at 4am. 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.
He laid out the stats for this glorious victory in his post.
