Indian man declares unclaimed 2000 sq km area in Africa his 'kingdom'

This Indian Man Claims Ownership Of Land In Africa Names It'Kingdom of Dixit

A normal person who is hailing from Indore, Suyash Dixit entered the worldwide border near Egypt and declared himself as a king for the No man's land. It is not easy to reach the place as it is an global border. I took a connecting flight from Cairo to Abu Simbel on November 4 after the conference, and travelled in a rented auto for six hours through the desert to reach Bir Tawil.

"But, if your Bucket List ideas are not scary enough then they are not worth trying!"

The land is believed to be the largest area unclaimed by any recognized nation.

"I, Suyash Dixit, first of my name and the protector of the realm, declare myself as the king of "Kingdom of Dixit"".

"King" Dixit is not the first person to anoint themselves leader of Bir Tawil.

Suyash Dixit, who is the CEO of an IT company is also a travel enthusiast who took his passion to another level altogether when he researched about the 800-square-mile strip of land separating Egypt and Sudan.

"We got on 3 conditions, no photos of military areas (which is nearly everything), you be back in the single day and you do not carry valuables".

Later start times announced for two upcoming Saints games
Brees is set to become a free agent at the end of this season after signing a one-year contract extension last September. Brees is 38 years old, and the Saints are winning primarily on the strength of the defense and the running game.

After hours of driving and finally reaching the land, Dixit planted a seed and placed his flag in two different places, to proclaim this is now the Kingdom of Dixit, said the report. "I pledge to continue to work for the prosperity of my people of the country and this motherland", Dixit wrote on Facebook.

He also added that Bir Tawil is open for foreign investment and people can apply for nationality.

After making the announcement of "Kingdom of Dikshit", Suyash has made his father Prime Minister, President and Military Head.

The name of the capital of this country is Suyashpur.

Suyash has chosen the country's national animal "lizard".

Bir Tawil is the only place on Earth that remains unclaimed, due to a mapping anomaly dating back to the days of British rule over the region.

Legally, a person can not claim land out of his will. In 2011, Jack Shenker had visited the place and planted a multicoloured flag. Earlier in 2014, an American had travelled to the desert land to make his daughter a princess of the "Kingdom of North Sudan".
