Why Man Vs Wild?

So why did Modi pick this extremely edge of the seat adventure of a show to feature in? ” 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 show focusing on life beyond politics and that too in the midst of nature I was intrigued to take part in it,” said Modi of his motivations in a conversation with The Times Of India.

Where Is It Shot?

The episode has been shot in India’s first natural sanctuary where the first Project Tiger took off, the Jim Corbett National Park.  It will take you through the dialogue on India’s environmental conservation and give you all the reasons to become a responsible citizen. Just have a look!

What Do We Think?

The episode is definitely a great move and a much-needed presence in today’s world where the need to conserve wildlife is still not a priority. Awareness itself is low and only something as large scale and influential could help many people sit up and take notice. We applaud the Prime Minister’s efforts to spread awareness and educate the masses of the perils of climate change and loss of wildlife. Are you going to tune in?
