India's emerging economy
With 1.2 billion residents, India is poised to have the world's largest population by 2030. Its nascent democracy creates opportunities and challenges for employers, workers and officials, as these stories explore.
Social concerns and environmental issues
Poverty and contaminated water lead the list of worries facing India, but there are others. Some are working to address them, but the fixes won't be easy.
Faith, families and education
It's almost a cliché to say India is a study in contrasts. Urban/rural. Rich/poor. Educated/uneducated. With or without parents. Worshiping any number of gods. Amid the familiar refrains, we found real people.

In a nation that values tradition, women increasingly are taking untraditional roles in society. Whether it's women working construction jobs or running for high office, the trend isn't universally applauded.
