Over the last 10 years, Indian workers have been adapting to a rapidly changing employment market. Thanks to rapid urbanization, technological advancement and economic growth, which have brought many millions into the ranks of the middle class, professions that were once embedded in the roots of communities are beginning to dwindle. At the same time, new avenues of opportunity are opening up.
In an eight-part series starting today, Mint profiles some of the people who embody this change, from the masters of dying crafts to the pioneers of new industries.
