Meet The ‘Coconut Boy’ of India

Jul 04, 2018 07:23 PM IST India India

Peeling off a coconut husk is a daunting task: you’d probably need a knife and/or a claw hammer to do that. Meet Ajay Singh Sisodia, a young man from Uttar Pradesh’s Hapur district, who can peel a coconut cover with his teeth — and that, too, in a matter of 10 seconds. But that wasn’t enough for Ajay: he challenged himself for more, and with practice, successfully peeled and drank water from six coconuts in one minute. Filled with pride, his father says that now his neighbours call him to remove the coconut husk when there is a festival or ritual in their house. As a child, Ajay found inspiration from watching a talent TV show.
