Answer :

The Vedic period can be broadly classified into two, namely the Rig-Veda period and the post-Rig-Veda period. The post-Rig-Veda period is called the post-Vedic period which was between 1000 BCE to 700 BCE. The professions that bloomed in the post-Vedic period are:

1. Pottery making was one of the main occupations.


2. Spinning was also practiced especially by women.


3. Women also did embroidery, dying and washing clothes.


4. There were many other professionals like rope makers, bamboo makers, firewood makers, fire makers, cowherds, fishermen, business men, doctors, astrologers, makers of bow and arrows etc.,


It can be clearly understood that the professions mentioned above flourished other than performing yagnas during the post-Vedic period.
