Army Man From Odisha’s Jagatsinghpur Buys Land On Moon For Son’s Birthday
Jagatsinghpur: A jawan of the Indian Army from Susanga here has recently bought one acre of land on the moon to gift his son on his first birthday.
Jawan Amarendra Barik also got the certificate of property registration issued by the International Lunar Land Registry (ILLR) in New York. The registration certificate mentioned the location of the land, its longitude, and latitude, earlier this week.
“I wanted to gift my son Sai Spandan something special on his first birthday on May 15. So I thought of buying him land on the moon”, Barik, who spent Rs 50,000 for the purpose, was quoted as saying by The New Indian Express.
Barik had approached ILLR through an email last year, soon after the birth of his son, seeking its permission to buy land on the moon. After receiving the nod from the ILLR, he submitted documents for registration.
The registry issued a certificate to the family this week. The land bought by Barik is located at Lacus Felicitatis which means ‘Lake of Happiness’ on the moon.
Recently Dhenkanal resident Md Sajan had purchased five acres of land on the moon as a birthday present for his wife Nazia.
