Dowsing - A forked twig said to move when held over ground in which water, metal etc. is to be found. Usually done with a "Y" shaped twig, the individual Dowsing will hold the stick by the forked end, and use the single end as a pointer. "Following" the rod will lead the dowser to the water/metal he is seeking, and vibrates when nearing the target in question.
Dowsing, sometimes called divining or water witching, refers to practices said to enable one to detect hidden water, metals, gemstones or other objects, usually obstructed by land or sometimes located on a map. Most commonly, detection is made through the movement or vibrations of an apparatus, such as a Y-shaped twig, an L-shaped rod, or a pendulum.

I definitely did not know, till now i.e., what dowsing is. I looked it up and I thank you for adding a new word and concept to my knowledge. Do you think it is practiced in India or anywhere else in the world today? I don’t think so, otherwise I would definitely have heard of it.
