Floating on water is no great shakes, but for 13 long hours?! Now, that takes talent. But even that wouldn’t have impressed this Michelin-starred chef visiting his hometown Amritsar if it hadn’t been for the fact that this Punjabi man could eat and drink with no problem at all as he chills and floats.
The man, identified as 26-year-old Jhujar Singh, was recently covered by a local channel for his ability to stay afloat for a long time, but what caught the world-famous restaurateur’s attention was his ability to eat and drink while immersed in water. Sharing the ‘breaking news’ video on Singh on the Vikas Khanna group Instagram handle, Khanna wrote, “Breaking news from Amritsar – The floating man. But more people are impressed that he can eat and drink while floating. Had to be about food when coming from my hometown.”
This is his post on Instagram.
According to the news clip that he shared, Singh said he has managed to stay afloat for 12-13 hours in river Ganga and that he developed this ‘talent’ within the age of six. When he is not leaving people awestruck floating in water, Singh said he works as a driver for a living.
Over the past couple of days, Khanna’s been regaling followers with some funny tweets that could prove life-saving. Remember the tweet showing a guy’s “brilliant fashion life hack” for securing job interviews?
