Modi bears all, sniffs dung with Grylls

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi hit Indian television screens like never before on Monday, talking about his life and the environment and smelling elephant dung with Bear Grylls. The Discovery Channel programme Man Vs. Wild saw Modi seek to burnish his credentials as a protector of nature, telling his story to the British television adventurer in a rainy Indian nature reserve. Every plant is a flower. We see God in every plant, Modi said as the two men made a spear and crossed a freezing river in a makeshift boat. It is every human s responsibility (to protect the environment). The biggest problem is our lifestyle. We exploit nature for our enjoyment, and that is the biggest problem, he said in Hindi, with Grylls appearing to understand. Modi, re-elected earlier this year, also told Grylls about his humble beginnings as a tea-seller s son and his solo trips of spiritual awakening into the Himalayas in his youth. The programme, widely advertised in Indian media, ended with a gushing Grylls saying a prayer for India and for Modi, whom he called an iconic global leader .
