Dev has three goals in mind. Serving the best Indian food in town, helping orphaned Nepal children with education and shelter. The other one is taking a group of customers to his homeland and showing them the mountains, trails, and bee hunting. Why bees?
Bees are a crucial component to our food. They pollinate our food supply, moving pollen from plant to plant. Unfortunately, they are under threat from climate change pesticides, and the giant hornet.
