Just over two weeks since the Uri attack, the sacrifice of the 19 martyred soldiers continues to evoke strong emotions.
But one man in Odisha did something a little different (and a little extreme?): Keshab Swain went on to break 108 coconuts with his elbow, on his head and even on his knees, and offered them to a shivalinga.
ANI posted a video of the same on Tuesday. Watch it here:
A martial arts expert, Keshab is also a Guinness World record holder for smashing 85 coconuts with his elbow in under 60 seconds.
"The offering I have made to Lord Shiva by breaking 108 coconuts is to pay tribute to the martyrs and hoping that they rest in peace; and their families should also find peace. I wish that our country also remains peaceful," Keshab said.
"I'm one small man in a big country but I hope that this objective of mine (peace) finds place in every citizen's heart," he added.
