Road Construction

Road ConstructionNotice Goa's distinctive red laterite soil. As with much construction in India, a lot of the work is done manually. Given India's cheap and abundant labour this is not surprising. These workers are from India's desert state of Rajasthan. One can tell this from the bright red dresses the women are wearing. Goa has been a magnet for migrant workers from all over India, given its relative prosperity in India.
