Does anybody have any idea if there are any expats working in the construction industry in India?

If not, would it be a good career choice?

Yeap! I am one expat working in India...well, real estate mostly but also manage construction! What do u want to know?
Whether it is a good career move?... It depends on your motives! But if you want to be the creme de la creme of the construction industry here, go and get a world class qualification first and work overseas first before coming back to work!
I have worked with people with 20 years+ experience in the industry here but they wouldn't be even qualified as a Junior Manager given their professionalism, best practise and world class construction knowledge and business ethics!
You will pick up a lot of bad habits in the industry here.

Wassat?

Here they mostly wear saris. Some of look pretty fierce; many of them still look beautiful, though the building dust gets engrained in their skin, and, of course they have amazing poise, not to mention muscle.

Not the prettiest of costumes. I think if I were going to be a brick carrying lady I'd need to go for the sari
