Babu Sassi — Crane Operator of Burj Khalifa [Burj Dubai, برج خليفة‎, Khalifa Tower]

Remember my post named Burj Khalifa [Burj Dubai, برج خليفة‎, Khalifa Tower]? Ever wondered who worked on the top level crane of the highest tower of the world? I'm not sure if it's the truth, but in one of the email forwards I've received, it's mentioned that he's a lucky and fearless Indian named Babu Sassi. In that email, I've received a photo of the tower under construction showing the position of the crane. The view is just breathtaking leaving apart the controversy :) Enjoy the view.

Note: I don't claim copyright of the following photo.

  9. This is wrong post - Go to youtube and check yourself - The crane operator was from Pakistan and his name was Muhammad Sher Khan . He operated the crane all the way. Govt of Dubai rewarded him and his family with the nationality of UAE and Passport.

    1. I don't feel a need to answer this as I have mentioned above that this is not my own creation, but from an email forward. However, just repeating what Sreeju has mentioned above…
