Indian man claims strip of land between Egypt and Sudan

Suyash Dixit drove six hours to Bir Tawil to declare himself king of the unclaimed desert tract between Sudan and Egypt

Suyash Dixit travelled to Bir Tawil, an unclaimed land in North Africa between Egypt and Sudan and has declared himself the "King of the land".

Suyash Dixit, a computer engineer from Indore, dodged terrorists in the barren desert and undertook a perilous six-hour drive to declare himself king of the "Kingdom of Dixit" in Bir Tawil, an 800-square mile tract, that according to a Fox News report, was declared by Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings as being "there for the taking if anyone was up to the challenge". Bir Tawil's existence is the result of a border drawn up by the British at the end of the 19 century.

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

All hail Suyash Dixit, first king of the Kingdom of Dixit.

"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". He is now encouraging interested parties to apply for citizenship.

Suyash Dixit reportedly found the area called Bir Tawil - meaning "deep well" in Arabic. He spent two nights planning his trip into the desert and convincing a local driver to bring him to the remote location.

"Following the early civilization ethics and rules, if you want to claim a land then you need to grow crops on it", Dixit said. He also sowed some seeds and poured water into it. This has led to several adventurers and explorers staking ownership of it, although worldwide recognition for such claims has not been forthcoming."While in Cairo, I chose to travel to the place".

Well, Dixit is not the first person to claim the land.

"Under worldwide law, only states can assert sovereignty over territory", Anthony Arend, co-founder of the Institute for global Law and Politics at Georgetown University, told The Washington Post in 2014.
