Construction workers on a tall skyscraper in Mumbai, India

Construction workers on a tall skyscraper in Mumbai, India

(0:53) I think the title on the video was supposed to read: "Why women live longer than men". Anyway, bamboo scaffolding is quite common around the world, even for very tall buildings. It may be low tech, but bamboo is a perfect scaffold material, being strong, straight, fast-growing, lightweight, cheap and renewable.
