In an age old relationship between man and nature, many villagers in Meghalaya's Garo hills still depend on crabs to locate underground drinking water sources. We watch the crabs as they know best where water is. Once they dig for water, we follow and find the water, says headman Saren M Sangma of Rangira Bolsalgre, a small hamlet in the West Garo.
