Photographer's Note

This man is an electrician busy to cut tree branches which damage the electric lines. He is barefoot and in the WS you can see him cutting the branches with a machete (A large heavy knife with a broad blade). The rope is not for him but to avoid the branch to fall anywhere.
The electricians are working at risk without protections.
There are numerous power cuts and accidents - every year hundreds of people get electrocuted in their homes or work place.

Sometimes while you are driving, it's possible to see hanging electric wires. It has happened to me, to fall down from the bike to avoid electric lines in my face...Luckily for me, I was driving slow...

Hope you like it...
