nanos gigantum humeris insidentes
Narayan Pargaien was in the state of Uttarakhand reporting on floods which have devastated the region when he made his unorthodox broadcast for News Express. But he has denied the suggestion that he exploited the man by sitting on his shoulders while on camera, insisting that the flood victim 'wanted to show respect' because he had never met anyone as important as the journalist before. A video of Mr Pargaien reporting on the floods swept the internet when it was posted to YouTube earlier this month, with many Indian web users criticising him for apparently using a disaster victim to keep his feet dry.
Normally I won't have the Daily Mail in the house, but this is a winner.
