2 crazy guys, a month long road trip and survival only on coconut water. 

Sounds crazy, right? Well it is. 

It all started when two young men, Anuj and Ishant, started their road trip and decided to cover the whole of India with NO MONEY at all. 

They danced in trains and did other odd jobs to earn money on the go. 


But this apparently wasn’t exciting enough for them, and so Anuj who had gone back to working for his website 4Play.in, decided to join hands with Ishant again.

This time they decided to take up the task to travel through Orissa on just coconut water for one month. 

And that is how, the ’30 Days Coconut Water Fast’ started almost two months ago. 

It was an insane and a really difficult task and hence it made total sense for Ishant to not be able to continue beyond three days. 

But Anuj held on and completed the task. 

Day 30/30 The sheer joy of last nariyal and first malaayi!

They documented the whole journey with pictures and posted them on their Instagram account, sirfnariyal

To keep themselves busy, they would talk to strangers, play games with them and even go to schools to talk about their trip.

They had their days planned out in advance sometimes and they included all the fun stuff. 

Thanks to this ‘strict diet’, Anuj managed to lose 14 kgs in one month and announced it with THIS picture. 

Turns out, it’s just one of the many since he’s not very fond of ‘hiding stuff’.

And when it all ended, they went home and had homemade upma and curd.

The two are now planning for another trip and I am probably more excited than them.
