Born and raised in Kerala, Nature has had a close companionship with bees growing up. At a young age, Nature had a few cool tricks up his sleeve to impress his friends with honeybees.
Nature first learned the art by keeping a queen bee onto his hand. Within minutes, the buzzing creatures covered his arm completely. Of course, he is aware of the fatal bee stings but Nature has held a special bond with his buddies while remaining calm and showing no nervousness as he dealt with them, something he learnt from his father.
“Bees are my best friends and I wished others too can love my friends as I do. I and my father started campaigning about bee protection and the importance of beekeeping,”
It’s a record
If you thought that was all, Nature currently holds the Guinness World Record for the longest duration of having his head submerged with bees.
Nature spent a breath-taking four hours, 10 minutes, and five seconds with bees covering his head, breaking the previously-held record by over three hours.
Although for most people a bee sting is painful but otherwise relatively harmless, in people with insect sting allergy, stings may trigger a dangerous anaphylactic reaction that is potentially deadly.
