Previously, Prime Minister Narendra Modi talked about this special episode with Bear Grylls and said, “For years, I have lived among nature, in the mountains and the forests. These years have a lasting impact on my life. So when I was asked about a special program focussing on life beyond politics and that too in the midst of nature I was both intrigued and inclined to take part in it.”
“For me, this show presents a great opportunity to showcase to the world India’s rich environmental heritage and stress on the importance of environment conservation and living in harmony with nature. It was a great experience spending time in the jungle once again, this time with Bear, who is blessed with indefatigable energy and quest to experience nature at its purest,” he added.
On the episode, recalling his childhood memories, PM said, “Since water resources were limited, I used to bathe in a pond daily and one day I caught a young crocodile and took it home. My mother told me that it is a sin and then I returned it to the pond.”
