MUMBAI: Bear Grylls uncovers PM Modi’s adventurous side on Discovery’s Exclusive show, ‘Man Vs Wild with Bear Grylls & Prime Minister Modi’ as they take an off-track journey across India’s Jim Corbett National Park situated in the state of Uttarakhand. Select excerpts of the show: -

The adventurous Indian Prime Minister: 

Through the episode viewers will get a glimpse of the Indian Prime Minister’s love for the environment, as in freewheeling chat, he shares little known childhood incidents spent amidst nature. Some interesting anecdotes revealed through the episode include how he used to create bathing salts from dew as a child, or his encounters with wildlife in his childhood, or the simple yet profound reason behind sending postcards across the country to celebrate the first rains!PM Modi’s keen interest in environmental conservation and values of respecting nature, is sure to inspire generations of Indians to do the same.

The Indian Prime Minister also shines spotlight on important issues like the need to preserve and embrace nature. Responding to Bear, when he points out evident dangers lurking in their vicinity (on account of wild animals), PM Modi fearlessly says, “We should not take this place as a danger zone. When we go against nature then everything becomes dangerous; human beings too become dangerous. On the other hand, if we co-operate with nature, then she also co-operates with us.”

This fearlessness was also observed when Bear Grylls gives PM Modi an improvised version of a spear as a safeguard against potential attack from a Tiger. To which, PM Modi replies, “My upbringing does not allow me to take a life. However, I will hold on it (the spear) since you insist!” 

When asked by Bear Grylls about the need and efforts towards cleanliness of India, the Prime Minister, said, “Someone from outside cannot clean my India, the people of India make India clean. Personal hygiene is in the culture of the Indian people. We need to develop the habit of social hygiene. Mahatma Gandhi has done lot of work on it and recently we are getting good success in this. I believe India will succeed in this very soon.”

Bear Grylls shared an interesting anecdote about his Mount Everest expedition, “I stood on the top of Mount Everest; when I got home, I showed my mother the photo. You know what she said? ‘Why did you not comb your hair? Mothers. Mothers. It's the same all over the 

world, eh? Mothers.” To which PM Modi smiled and nodded wholeheartedly, perhaps thinking of his own mother.
