They say that humankind always finds a way to survive. The living testimony to this are the desserts dwellers who sustain in scorching heat or the people in the artic regions who have maintained a life in sub-zero temperatures, or the forest dwellers in one of the most remote parts of the world. Sitting in our office chairs, while the AC is on full blast and our microwave notifies us that our food is ready, it seems almost impossible to survive in the above-mentioned areas, doesn’t it? However, people do, and they do so with commendable spirits! We recently came across a similar video of a man from Russia who has taken the internet by storm with a simple cooking video from his region.
The video was uploaded by the page @earthpix. Originally, the video belongs to @pandasakha_official who is a content creator from Sakha, Yakutia. Yakutia is a republic of Russia which lies in the Russian Far East, along the Arctic Ocean. Yakutia can be considered the coldest place on earth with temperatures dropping up to -50 in the winter months. Such is the climate of this area that produces along with meat and fish are naturally frozen without the use of any external force. In this video, the Russian man can be seen preparing a stew right outside his house. He uses a block of ice for water and tosses in whole frozen vegetables in the stew. The process of cooking is as mesmerising as the dish itself. Take a look at it here:
The video has garnered over 29 mil views and received 1.6 mil likes. The comments left on the video have admired the efforts of the man and other people living in those conditions. From applauding the man to questioning his choice to live in these conditions, some of the comments left on the video were:

“Absolutely incredible. Bet it was divine”
“Why would anyone want to live there”
“Why would you intentionally live somewhere like that? LEAVE!”
“Wow!! This video makes me feel brave to go live in the cold”
“Gotta cook and eat it before it freezes again”
“That must be extremely difficult to live in that place like this, everything is frozen”
