Dare­devil farmer per­forms un­be­liev­able tricks on trac­tor

Iran Daily - - Entertainment -

Afarmer, who per­forms jaw-drop­ping wheel­ies on his trac­tor, has built up a huge fan base af­ter videos of his skills were shared online.

Gaggi Ban­sra, 21, has been prac­tic­ing his un­be­liev­able acts for more than four years af­ter find­ing a pas­sion for dare­devil stunts while work­ing in his fa­ther’s fields in Pun­jab, mir­ror. co.uk re­ported.

Now, the in­sipid young stunt­man can ef­fort­lessly ma­neu­vered the one tone trac­tor on its back wheels and drag it for an im­pres­sive 100 me­ters (328ft) at one time.

“It is a thrilling ride. It takes me to a dif­fer­ent zone. I feel all pumped up while do­ing these stunts,” said Ban­sra.

The only son of an agrar­ian fa­ther, Ban­sra, has been pas­sion­ate about stunts since he was a teenager. He dreamed of own­ing a mo­tor­bike but could never af­ford one and in­stead started prac­tic­ing on the only ve­hi­cle avail­able to him.

When he dropped out of col­lege, Ban­sra started help­ing his fa­ther ir­ri­gat­ing the fields and, four years ago, he be­gan try­ing his hand at trac­tor wheel­ies.

He said: “I had never seen any videos of such stunts be­fore. It just came to my mind that why not try do­ing some ad­ven­ture with the heavy ma­chine.

“I would be hon­est, I mis­er­ably failed the first day as the trac­tor was heavy and it did not even come off the ground.”

While the first try was a com­plete dis­ap­point­ment, Ban­sra was un­fazed and kept his hopes high. Within three months, he mas­tered his act.

Once he got into the groove, the young farmer started show­ing off his stunts to other farm­ers in the field.

With grow­ing pop­u­lar­ity across the vil­lages, of­fers from fair and films started pour­ing in.

He said: “Peo­ple came from far and wide vil­lages to see me do­ing the stunts. They found it un­be­liev­able, be­cause they had no clue how I could even lift the trac­tor off the ground.

“I get of­fers from var­i­ous fair or­ga­niz­ers ev­ery year. Peo­ple pay as much as £176 to see me per­form­ing these stunts.

“My fa­ther had op­posed my pas­sion, be­cause he feared that it is life-threat­en­ing and the stunts can even dam­age the trac­tor.”
