Indian PM Modi to join Bear Grylls in ‘Man vs Wild’ British TV survival show

New Delhi, July 29: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is collaborating with British TV adventurer Bear Grylls to wander into India’s wilderness to bring issues to light about securing nature, the show’s host stated on Monday.

India is attempting to ensure its environment and its natural life, as an immense and developing populace puts always weight on its wild spaces.

“People across 180 countries will get to see the unknown side of PM @narendramodi as he ventures into Indian wilderness to create awareness about animal conservation & environmental change,” Grylls, star of survival show “Man vs. Wild” on the Discovery Channel, said on Twitter.

A trailer for the program demonstrates Modi, 68, crashing into the Jim Corbett National Park guided by Grylls in northern India, with pictures of a tiger, a crowd of elephants and deer running out there, according to ANI news reports.

“You are the most important person in India, it’s my job to protect you,” Grylls tells Modi.

Modi said he had experienced childhood in nature and the program with Grylls was an opportunity to feature India’s rich untamed life.

“For years, I have lived among nature, in the mountains and the forests,” Discovery quoted Modi as saying in a statement.

“These years have a lasting impact on my life. So when I was asked about a special program focusing on life beyond politics and that too in the midst of nature I was both intrigued and inclined to take part in it.”

The show, which pretense on Aug. 12, is mixing some fervor among enthusiasts of Modi, who drove his political party to a subsequent straight broad poll victorythis year.

“This is unbelievable. PM Modi knows how to do it,” said one Twitter user, Akash Jain.

India, which stretches from snow-bound Himalayan statures in the north to hot topics in the south, is home to a large portion of the world’s remaining wild tigers.

India’s tiger counts rose to 2,967 of every 2018, up a third from 2014, new gauges discharged by Modi on Monday.

More than 3.8 million sq km (1.5 million sq miles) of backwoods were overviewed in 2018 and 2019, with cameras in around 26,000 areas and a huge number of kilometers secured by walking.

“India is committed to doing whatever it can to further animal protection and conservation,” Modi said, while releasing the census report.
