New Delhi [India], May 28 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday urged the people of the nation to connect with nature, saying that the process connects us with ourselves. Addressing the nation in the 32nd episode of his Mann Ki Baat radio programme, the Prime Minister said, "Connecting with nature is nothing but connecting with ourselves. People should connect with nature to nurture a better planet." Asserting that our ancestors conserved nature, Prime Minister Modi appealed that we must also show the same compassion towards future generations.
