In this Aug. 24, 2012 photo, B2R employees, center, get ready to leave on their newly-acquired motorcycles at the end of their work day in Simayal, India as laborers shape a piece of metal in the foreground. The three-year-old business is using the spread of the Internet to transport India's outsourcing boom from metropolitan areas to this farming village in the Himalayan foothills. B2R and a handful of similar firms are trying to offer an alternative road map for Indian economic growth. With nearly 70 percent of the population - 833 million people - living in rural areas and its cities already overburdened, there is a limit to how quickly the nation can urbanize.
