Window cleaners

This is the top of the Hindustan Times building. It must be around 25 stories high.
These guys are out there touching up paint and cleaning windows for the Hindustan Times executives to be able to look out upon the view of Delhi.

Please note their safety gear and the special safety precautions taken.
That's right: there is nothing to notice.
No shoes, no hard-hats, no pulleys or elaborate rope systems, no scaffolding.
No guardrails.
Just a man, a board, a bucket, and a heavy helping of fearlessness suspended at the end of a rope far above concrete.

Yes "ow" is how it will be should something go wrong.

Now ask yourself just how much you like your job.
