As the news of this stunt spread across the village, a huge crowd gathered around the electric pole, with people urging him to come down. Thankfully, when Sobran Singh climbed on the pole and held the high-tension line, there was no current in the wires. Soon after, his family immediately informed the employees of Madha Bhau Bijli sub-station about this incident.  Springing into action, the electricity department cut the connection, thus averting a major accident. After a lot of convincing from the family and neighbors, Sobran finally came down from the pole, to the relief of villagers. The 60-year-old man’s wife whose wife died four years ago, has three sons and two girls. All his five children are also married and have children of their own. However, a few days back, he started insisting on getting married again, but his children were not ready for it and vehemently protested it.
