Watch: Gir forest employee’s endearing talk to a lion requesting him to let him pass

Gir forest in Gujarat is the only home in Asia to Asiatic Lions. It is one of the most important and protected areas in Asia.

In a wonderful example of coexistence, a video has gone viral on social media where a Gir forest employee in Gujarat was seen talking to a lion, requesting the big cat to let him pass. The video was shared by Union Minister for Environment, Forest & Climate Change, Prakash Javdekar.

In the video, one can hear the man speaking in Gujarati to the lion requesting him to move aside as he is busy and cannot wait the whole day. He asks the lion to step aside so that he can move forward.

As if paying heed to the requests, few seconds later, the lion moves away. “Wah,” the employee could be heard saying.
