Water divining

The water diviner.
They were looking for a water point just outside our home. He had a coconut in on his palm, anointed with kumkum and turmeric. At certain places the coconut lying horizontally on his flat palm would rise erect.
A point where the coconut rose miss was noted, and marked out with a rock.
The water diviners and geologists have equal success rates, and both are consulted in our village before sinking a bore.
