Another name for industrialization can development not properly but a part of it, we can say it is a boon. it changes us socially and economically too. a coin have two sides as well as industrialization have merits and demerits . industry provide jobs for labours then how it can be a curse for the rural workers ?

Progress marches onward - and if you can't change then you will be left behind. If a machine can do something better than a human it will be used instead. If it is more cost effective to hire 3 repairmen for 60 machines instead of 120 men/women then that is what will happen. If burning coal to power said machines will result in 120,000 worth of fines for damage to the environment versus 120,000,000 in profit then that's how it will go.

Basically the problem with industrialization is that generally it is not a boon to workers - it is instead a boon to factory owners. That said it will be considered a necessary evil because society tends to profit. Or at least the majority (particularly the rich) will profit and those who suffer under the sway of industrialization will be swept under the carpet or ignore generally speaking.

So in short - industrialization allows for cheap products and faster production - but it does so at the expense of the rights and success of the general worker.
