mosaic of life

Scores of workers are involved in the construction work in india. Especially when the country is at the threshold of creating more world class cities (read concrete jungle), workers involved in construction has an important role. Sadly, only engineers, equipments and raw materials are counted as priceless. Helpers are generally considered as unskilled workers and would eventually be taken as part of the informal sector. Workers who are the tile breakers (usually called in for breaking the ceramic tiles to make beautiful and artistic mosaic designs) are paid only 1/3rd of the wage a normal construction worker gets. And most of the times, women and children are added bonus to the contractors, as they have to be paid even much lesser.
