Sher Singh crosses the Indian Ocean in a paddle boat

A 34-year-old software engineer from Chandigarh, Sher Singh Dhillon, has paddled his way into the record books by becoming the first Indian to cross the Indian Ocean on “human power”. As part of a global circumnavigation mission called Expedition 360, he traversed the high seas in a paddle boat.

The boat had left the shores of Mumbai on January 29 and reached Djibouti on the eastern shores of Africa after battling winds, waves, ocean currents and other challenges over a 1,835-mile expanse of unpredictable waters for 49 days and nights.
