I could not resist myself from pulling my car by the side of the road (the famous NH-24 which is always crowded) to capture some pics of this man’s work while returning from my work to home. I was stunned to see this person’s job – fearless, bold and requires a lot of courage and talent.
High Tension towers were being installed and new wires were laid to carry power from the power stations to the city. There are no covers too at the ground just in case he tripped and the rope fastened to him broke(although it was a very thick one so very thin chances of the same, however accidents happen). It was almost dusk and he had to complete his work, move towards the tower(he was in the middle) and make his way down from the tower. He had been working up there since long and given the soaring temperature of 42 C it was really a brave-hearts work. I wish I could have his name and credit him in this post.
My heart goes out to salute all those brave hearts who have such job profiles and yet they perform beyond expectations, complaints and any rewards. The matter of fact is that they are not highly paid individuals and yet they are part of a risk affair. God bless such people and give them peace and happiness in life who work their lives out to enlighten others life.
This also highlights another strange contrasting aspect of our social life:
Some pay to have adventure and fun in their life, while for a few it is the way of life, only means of survival – their bread and butter.
Looking at the photographs I am sure you must have got an idea of the height of the wire he has been working on. What I can guess is 200-250 fts.
Strangest moment was when slowly the passersby stopped watching me click and one of them asked me “Is that a mad person who has climbed up?”. I did not know how to react and had a feeling of how ignorant this person is, I just smiled back to him.
Those who keep on complaining about their life and job try changing gears with this guy who plays with danger and his life in every moment he works.
God bless you all, stay happy keep smiling and Enjoy. A BIG Kiss 🙂
Enjoy the lovely and beautiful flower bud of the day.
Last few days have been very tough and busy fore me, my father fainted and got admitted to hospital and discharged last Saturday. He had been fit and fine and was enjoying life at the fullest. We almost lost him and the emergency staff saved him twice with CPR on time. Thanks to the Almighty and the wonderful emergency staff.
Life gave a lesson in many ways – to enjoy life and value what all you have been blessed with. The many pains and miseries were an eye opener and it was sad to see so many youngsters admitted too. Whenever you feel that you are not content with life or feel dissatisfied with what you have or feel fussy about everything just push a visit to a nearby hospital and realise how fortunate you have been.
Enjoy your life and be blessed. Loads of love and a BIG KISS 🙂
If life gives you lemons, oh pity lemons. I pity lemon for being the subject of continuous assault by the corporate world which made lemons so infamous indeed 🙂 and making it indeed a fruit portraying low esteem and low value despite its nutritional and medicinal values.
Said that basically the phrase “When life gives you lemon make lemonade out of it” implies that you were expecting something other than lemon, may be apples. Also the sour taste of lemon makes it a victim.
If, ifs and Ands were pots and pans there would have been no need for tinkers hand.
If there is Life, there is a struggle and if we get oranges and lemons then only we realize the value of sweeter side of our life. Nothing is more fulfilling than the sense of achievement doesn’t matter whether you squeeze the lemons or oranges or sell them.
So life will keep on giving oranges and lemons we need to
1-Add more oranges and give it back to the person.
2-Sell them considering they are diamonds.
3-Make it someone else’s oranges, or look for associating more people with some common area of concern. So now basically it will be a global problem and they everyone needs to look for a solution.
4-Look for ways to bartering it.
So essentially there is no need to worry for lemons and oranges it’s just the way you handle situations and there are no coaching for it, life is the best teacher and it will make you learn what you need to do with your lemons.
