  • Chitradurga is a town in the State of Karnataka in India. Unfortunately, nothing is known about him here in Bangalore, the state capital, about 200kms form Chitradurga. He should be of great use to the Construction Industry here.

  • In all my years of rock climbing I've never seen a move like that before: spinning his feet above his head to reach higher. Someone give him a rope and a sponsorship deal!
