While the Hindu has a strong affinity with their natural environment, as seen in their love of nature and other religious dominions such as Buddhism which have an origin in India, Nadkarni’s connection to nature may have simply been the result of her affinity with her father. For example, she proposes that the only time she saw her father’s sentimental side was when he was catering for the trees (Nadkarni, 2008). Though the love of nature is undeniably a function of her Hindi heritage, there is no indication that her Hebrew side was involved.
The ability to accept other people’s propositions makes good scientists and researchers (Der Zee, 2004). Nadkarni proposes that her ability to accept methods proposed by other people. For example, she accepted the different views of studies related to canopy studies and thus gained the ability to study these canopies from a better position, she goes further to imply the ability to be receptive is a function of her diverse heritage (Nadkarni, 2008). She makes a convincing point because, from childhood, she had learned to live with polar situations. For example, the two religions have some contradictions, such as the ban on any imitation of God. Despite these differences, she learned to accept their presence as a natural part of life (Nadkarni, 2008). Therefore, her achievements are a function of her diverse backgrounds.
Nadkarni also contends there are times when she felt misplaced and wondered whether all her efforts were merely to prove herself to the people around her.
