Getting pulled from all sides?

The Raj is always looking out for interesting things and structures when he goes out for a drive. Radio masts / telecommunications towers have fascinated me. Tall and thin, they stand out dwarfing other structures around. What keeps the masts standing are the guy wires running in different directions from the tower to the ground from multiple levels in the tower. The guy wires/cables are spread out over a radius of several hundred feet. Will be interesting to see a tower under construction just to observe steel lattice being put up and then secured to the ground by the guy wires. Some of those guy wires must be tethered to the ground in properties not owned by the organization that owns a tower. I wonder if those property owners get some discount if they use the radio/TV services on offer 🙂 My guess is more densely populated the area where the towers are they are likely to be taller to avoid signal obstruction by surrounding structures.
What is the point of all this?
To share a life lesson: If you are getting pulled from all sides you can still stand tall and
strong if you maintain your balance! (Did I hear someone say “and there is always a Raj story
waiting to be told”? 😉 Yes, of course! You betcha 😀 )
