Anchal ’ s greatest achievement and “ the magic I am most proud of to date ” occurred on November 23 , 2014 when she defied death by performing a very dangerous “ Great Fire Act ” which was awarded the LIMCA “ National Indian Record Certification ”, in the Indian Book of Records in 2016 .
The daring escape was presented in front of a live audience which included respected leaders and government officials . Anchal was tightly secured
with 100 feet of chain wrapped around her body and held into place with 100 locks . She entered a solid wooden box with holes for her hands to be locked outside the box , to be visible to the public . The metal frame of the box was then welded shut and raised by crane and suspended 100 feet above an ancient funeral pyre . The box was lowered into the large pyre which was ignited into a blazing haystack bonfire , the visual was terrifying . After an uncomfortable , nerve-wracking wait , Anchal emerged ,
running through the roaring flames unscathed . Her hands seemed to be burning with fire and it was riveting escapology which earned her further celebrity status and credibility .
