Dharamveer Kamboj was born on May 15, 1963 at village Damla to Shri Ramswaroop Kamboj and Smt Savitri Devi. As an inquisitive child, Dharamveer would often accompany his mother for collecting kesu (Butea monosperma) flowers, watching devotedly how those flowers were taken care of, made into colours for Holi. Unfortunately he lost his mother in childhood, but inherited from her, a curiosity for nature and its herbal wealth. At school, he participated in a science exhibition with his instrument viz., \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'emergency light\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'.
In 1980, a saint came to his home and talked to him about herbs. He was curious and asked the saint if he could earn a good living through herbs and its plantation. The saint gave him an assertive nod. The words encouraged him and whenever opportunity came, he dedicated himself to know more and more about the herbs, their plantation and business.
He earned his livelihood by farming on two acres of land, held jointly with his brothers. In 1986, he got married to Shyamudevi. Just after three days of his daughter Pooja’s birth, he left for Delhi to search for better means of income. There he worked as a rickshaw puller. But this arduous phase of life became a turning point. He used to ferry traders to Khari Bawli area of Old Delhi,where they used to pay hefty amount for herbs. This amazed him and he would often converse with the passengers and vendors to know about the herbs and the income they could fetch. His passion for herbs was revived. Unfortunately his stay at Delhi had to be cut short as he met with an accident in 1987. Severely injured, he was brought back to village and it took a year to nurse him back to health.
