Naresh Swami, op zoek naar orchideeën

As a devout Hindu priest Naresh Swami has always had a great interest and much respect for nature. Plants and animals are highly revered in Hinduism, the oldest religion in the world. In his childhood Naresh Swami already enjoyed trekking through wild forests and fields in India, the country where he was born in 1980, and he still loves doing that. His interest in nature evolved into such strong admiration that his parents encouraged him to study science in addition to theological subjects.
