    haunches

    Rakesh went down on his haunches.

    What is the meaning of `went down on his haunces' in this sentence.

    In dictionary, I could not understand what is `haunches'.

    Please you explain it.

    I think it means He squatted down. No falling.

    Haunches means thighs. "To go down on his haunches" means "to squat".
    Hope it helps.
