An instructor (C) teaches at a masonry workshop at the Larsen & Toubro (L&T) construction skills training institute in Panvel, in the western Indian state of Maharashtra November 18, 2014. India has too few skilled labourers thanks to decades of neglect in training and it desperately needs electricians, bricklayers and plumbers. Larsen & Toubro (L&T), the country's biggest construction company, says it could face a labour shortage next year, just when it plans to ramp up investment after two years of slow economic growth. It has gone out to rural areas to find recruits and bring them to sprawling training centres from which up to 20,000 students graduate a year, many of them joining L&T.

Sculptors work at an outdoor workshop in the town of Dangcheng in Quyang county
Sculptors work at an outdoor workshop in the town of Dangcheng in Quyang county, 240 km (150 miles) southwest of Beijing December 7, 2011. Dangcheng applied the traditional stone-carving skills of this rocky party of Hebei province to boom as an exporter of ornate statues, busts, fountains and friezes to Europe and north America. Now this corner of northern China is struggling with the international slump and financial turmoil in formerly big markets, especially Italy and other euro zone countries.

Joe Alonso, (L) head stone mason, and Andy Uhl, a stone carver at the Washington National Cathedral, oversee the removal of damaged upper portions of the southeast grand pinnacle, that weigh two tons, from the central tower of the Washington National Cathedral during a foggy morning in Washington, October 13, 2011. The Cathedral's central tower pinnacles were damaged by the magnitude 5.8 earthquake that struck the U.S. east coast on August 23. The damaged portions of the pinnacles are being removed to make the pinnacles and central tower stable until the stonework can be repaired and are then put back in place.

Sculptors work in an outdoor workshop littered with nearly completed stone statues in the town of Quyang, located 250 kilometres southwest of Beijing March 23, 2009. The town, that has a history of stone carving dating back more than 2000 years, has fallen on hard days after the world economic slump sucked away demand for the ornate stone statues, busts and carvings that this barren corner of Hebei province has made its speciality. Unbought statues of Jesus and Mary and copies of ancient busts now far outnumber the workers who chip and grind away in the small workshops. Picture taken March 23, 2009.
