This Indian Man Has Built His Own Titanic-Shaped Villa


The human desire to create something unique and remarkable often leads to extraordinary feats. Such is the case of Mintu Roy, a West Bengal, India farmer who has spent the past 13 years constructing a Titanic-shaped house.

Inspired by a Titanic-themed pandal (temporary structure) he saw during the Durga Puja festival, Mintu Roy’s dream of living in a house modeled after the iconic passenger liner has become a reality. Despite facing numerous challenges in finding someone to build his dream house, Mintu Roy took matters into his own hands and decided to design and build it himself. He has been working on the project for 13 years and hopes to finish it in the next two years.  

Despite being a farmer with limited resources, Roy has poured a lot of effort and money into building the 39-foot-long, 13-foot-wide, and 30-foot-high house. He has even gone to Nepal for three years to study masonry to ensure the quality of his work.

The house, which has become a significant tourist attraction in the area, is still unfinished but already boasts an impressive exterior. Roy plans to make the inside just as grand by installing a grand staircase, intricate woodwork, a main deck, and a special control room.

Roy’s wife and children fully support his dream, and his son even hopes to help him financially.

The Bengali farmer’s determination and creativity are awe-inspiring. His passion for the Titanic and his dream of building a house shaped like it has captured the attention of many, and it is exciting to see how his project will continue to unfold.
