Responding to Grylls, when he points out at the danger in their vicinity, PM Narendra Modi says, "I believe we shouldn’t consider this place as dangerous. If we challenge Nature, everything can become a threat, even humans. On the other hand, if we co-operate with nature, then she also co-operates with us."

Grylls makes an improvised version of a spear and gives it to PM Modi as a safeguard against potential tiger attack. To which, PM Modi says, "It is not my sanskar [culture] to kill. However, I will hold on it (the spear) since you insist!"
When Bear Grylls asked about the need to keep India clean, PM Modi said, "someone from outside cannot clean India, the people of India make India clean. Personal hygiene is in the culture of people here. We need to develop the habit of social hygiene." "Mahatma Gandhi has done a lot of work on it and recently we are getting success in this. I believe India will succeed in this very soon,” he added.
