Syash Dixit, a computer coder from Indore, India, undertook a perilous six-hour drive and declared himself king of the Kingdom of Dixit in Bir Tawil, an 800-square mile tract that Jeopardy champ Ken Jennings said in a 2011 article was there for the taking if anyone was up to the challenge.
"The route that I took is under Egyptian military (it is an worldwide border) and is an area of terrorists so military have "shoot at sight" orders", Dixit said on Facebook, the Telegraph reported Tuesday. I took a connecting flight from Cairo to Abu Simbel on November 4 after the conference, and travelled in a rented vehicle 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".
However, the Washington Post reports that both Egypt and Sudan would need to recognise any claim to the region and these can only be made by extant recognised states, not individuals.
On his Facebook post, Suyash Dixit wrote " I Suyash Dixit declaring myself as the king of "Kingdom of Dixit".
Upon reaching the spot, Suyash planted seeds and a flag to establish the "no man's land" as his territory and himself to be the ruler of it.
"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". "However, it did not last long as I made my father the president of the kingdom. I declare this unclaimed land of Bir Tawil as my country from now to the eternity of time", Suyash, the CEO at Softinator, wrote on Facebook. "I pledge to continue to work for the prosperity of my people of the country and this motherland", Dixit wrote on Facebook.
Dixit has also created a website, encouraging others to apply for citizenship. "Now I know that some 5-10 folks have done it in the past as well but this is my land now (as I have officially planted the seeds following the rules) and if they want it back, there will be a war (over a cup of coffee at the Starbucks probably)!" Suyash has also given the name to the capital of the country as Suyashpur.
Suyash has chosen the country's national animal "lizard".
According to a Daily Mail report, Bir Tawil has remained as "de facto" region, which means no man's land for more than 100 years. However, Dixit is not the only person to make such claims on the Bir Tawil land.
