He, along with team, experienced the unique challenge of living underwater for close to a month in a pressurized environment inside a submarine setting.

"When you haven`t felt the sun on your face and you`ve been breathing recycled air for months, getting on the surface of water and on land is like. Freedom at last! How I missed the beautiful sunlight," Rana adds.
