The Highest Human Position In The World
Got this in an email and can't help admiring the guy
Do you know who holds the highest position in the world?
President Barack Obama? Pope Benedict? The Dalai Lama?
Nope. None of these
Do you want to see WHO that person is ?
Babu Sassi, a fearless young man from southern India, is the cult hero of Dubai's army of construction workers. Known as the "Indian on the top of the world", Babu is the crane operator at the world's tallest building, the 819-meter Burj Dubai.
His office, the cramped crane cab perched on top of the Burj, is also his home. It takes too long to come down to the ground each day to make it worthwhile -although, when the building is completed, its elevators will be the world's fastest.
Stories about his daily dalliance with death are discussed in revered terms by Dubai's workers. Some say he has been up there for more than a year, others whisper that he's paid 30,000 dirhams ($8,168) a month compared with the average wage of 800 dirhams a month.
But everyone agrees, he's worth it - because nobody else would have the courage to do the job!

Most probably another urban legend, could be started by some Malayalee in "Gelf", as Babu/Sasi are very common names in Kerala
Myth of ‘Babu Sassi’ Remains After Burj Cranes Come Down
