An Army Officer from Odisha has now added a new world record to his long-list of envious super-human abilities in doing yoga and stunts. A resident from Sahadevkhunta area of Balasore, Lieutenant Colonel Laxmidhar Bhuyan, is a known name in Odisha because of the scores of world records he has etched in his name.

Bhuyan on the occasion of 75th Independence Day, took his passion for world records to a whole new level when he exhibited a phenomenal yoga performance on top of a pedestal mounted on a 20-feet high ladder fitted with a moving car at Artillery Centre in Nashik.

He demonstrated the eye-catching spectacle blindfold after running on a 400-meter track and then performed the act of longest time hitting on hips by heels on headstand yoga position atop the platform on the moving car. In doing so, he broke his earlier record he had attempted in the same ground in January 2021.

Bhuyan, an adept athlete and yoga enthusiast for the last three decades joined the Indian Army in 1992. He has many notable records to his name including that of Guinness Book of World Records, Asia Book of Records, India Book of Records, Limca Book of Records.

The 50-year-old had earned the admiration of Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and caught countrywide attention when he registered his name in the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest time hitting on hips by heels on headstand yoga position despite having disability due to a fracture from combat exercise.
