When the whole world is trying to find out a way to sustain nature, the people of Meghalaya, for thousands of years have been doing the same. Instead of cutting down a tree to make a bridge, they fold the roots of the trees to create a living bridge. How natural!

While the developed world might be thinking them as underdeveloped, they are the actual fighters of climate change.

The living root bridge is an awe inspiring creation.
