Nikolau, in her collection of risky selfies on Instagram, can be seen posing on the the edges of building roof-tops, where a normal person like you and I would probably just die because of freaking out, seeing the Earth far far away from you and tripping off the building. Angela Nikolau, on the other hand, looks beautiful and calm, and actually happy, in all the photographs. Every shot of hers, standing at the riskiest edges of buildings, have a soothing and liberating effect. Even though they make your heart skip a beat, but the next second the calmness of the photograph takes over your mind and heart. Below are some blenching yet amazing shots by the Russian daredevil.

However, unfortunately, many like these famous daredevils have lost their lives in the order to try feel the rush . Among many cases around the world, a 23-year-old in India was reported to have died while clicking a selfie, this January. While he was trying to click a selfie, he lost his balance and fell off the Mehrangarh Fort in Rajasthan.

Across the world the reported number of accidents caused by selfies have shot up so much that the police in Russia had to issue guidelines to click a safe selfie. However, according to a report by Washington Post, in 2015, out of a total of 27 reported selfies around the world, almost half of them occurred in India.

Consequently, on August 10, the Ministry of Tourism in India directed the state governments to take measures to avoid mishaps of selfies at tourist spots. According to the advisory issues by the government, all states and Union Territories must mark selfie-danger zones at popular tourist spots.
