This barren land in Africa was owned by no one until the moment Suyash claimed it. This piece of land lies between Egypt and Sudan and is known as Bir Tawil. It is about 2000 sq. kilometers of unclaimed barren land.

Suyash is the owner of a software development company known as Softinator Labs. He also heads the Google Developers Group in Indore. He went Cairo to attend developers meet and from there he took a connecting flight to Abu  Simbel and then rented a car and went to Bir Tawil.

According to an ancient ritual, one needs to cultivate the land he/she owns. Following this idea, he buried some sunflower seeds on this barren land and claimed it to be his. No only the seeds, but he also hoisted a flag there, designed especially for ‘The Kingdom of Dixit’.

 

But Did The Government Agree?
