Rumble - Before you cringe at the close-up photographs of the insects, give this information a shot. It is very important.

We all know that we are fighting a war against time to save our planet. Ecologists are warning us every day that our planet is dying, and it is all our fault. We hear stories about the rise of the ocean levels due to climate change, we read about PM10 and PM2.5 particles in the atmosphere, about floating islands of trash in the middle of our oceans, about holes in the ozone layers, about deforestation. But it doesn’t really get to us.

However, on the other hand we have people like this guy on the video that has more than love towards bees. Not only does he cherish, respect and take care of them, he is so close to them to the extent that he does what you will see in this video. While most people like to stay away from bees for the fear of getting stung, a man in India was seen stuffing his shirt with the insects with his bare hands.

Professional honey collector Suk Mohammad Dalal, 32, is a resident of Chandramonipur village in West Bengal, a state in eastern India. He has been collecting honey for the last 16 years, but what makes him different from others is the way he goes about his business.

While the usual way involves applying smoke around the comb to drive away the bees, Suk Mohammad's method is very hands on. Though he starts off with the usual smoking, it is what follows that makes it interesting.

According to visuals from one of his many honey collecting trips, Suk was seen stuffing his mouth with honey bees. Later he repeated the same, putting the bees inside his shirt.

The man was also seen cutting a hole in the middle of the honeycomb and putting his head through, while bees buzzed all around his face. Once he is done collecting the honey, Suk lets out the bees from his shirt.

While these stunts are not only risky and can prove fatal for an ordinary human being, Suk Mohammad's body has developed resistance towards bee sting. Before taking up his present job, Suk worked as a doctor's assistant in Kolkata, the state capital.

Suk said, "Since I live in a village, I would often come across honeycombs containing good amount of honey. One day while walking past, I thought what if I start collecting honey and sell them, I could easily make a living out of it. That is how it started."

Take a look, as this video is bound to amaze you!
