According to the Daily Mail (UK), the 24-year-old, known as Nature MS, considers bees to be his “best friends” and says he never considers them a threat.
Recently, he set a Guinness world record when he let bees cover his face and neck for 4 hours 10 minutes 5 seconds. He said he can still walk, run and jump normally so that tens of thousands of honey bees cover his face.

Even experienced beekeepers can experience dangerous allergic reactions. However, being stung by a bee on her lips or eyelids doesn’t worry Nature. He believes that even if he is stung, it is not the fault of the bees, “if humans are not at fault, bees will never sting anyone”.
Having been associated with bees since the age of 7, Nature always attracts the attention of her peers with impressive performances with bees.

It is known that the Indian boy was first exposed to bees when his father, Sajayakumar, a beekeeper and honey maker, taught him how to approach bees. He told Nature to try holding a bee in his hand. Soon, a swarm of bees rushed to his arm to protect the queen bee. Everything happens within 15 minutes. The next day, he tried getting the queen bee to land on his head and both his head and face were covered with bees.
“My dad’s advice always comes to mind, making me forget all my worries or fears. Dad always advised me to stay calm in front of the bees and treat them like a friend. He also asked me to take deep breaths and never lose patience or give in to fear. At first, it wasn’t easy to do that. But I never give up, I feel great when I conquer them,” Nature said.

The affection for bees has motivated Nature to pursue academic disciplines in beekeeping. Currently, he is studying for a master’s degree at a college in Bangalore, India. He dreams of getting a PhD in the field to protect bees and learn more about them.
“Honey is the sweetest thing in the world and everyone loves it. To me, bees are my best friend and I hope many others can love them too. Honey bees are essential insects in society, it is our duty to protect them,” he said.
