International Day of Yoga: Yoga Everyday Keeps the Doctor at Bay

Various yoga camps, programs and seminars have been organised across the world to mark International Yoga Day.

In Dehradun, in the presence of the Prime Minister, Uttarakhand Governor KK Paul, Union Minister of state for AYUSH Shripad Yesso Naik and Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat also participated.

"Beyond exercise and health, yoga is about life, self-awareness and a connect with your soul". The Prime Minister reached the venue a little after 6:30 am, addressed the gathering and performed yoga along with those assembled there. Modi revealed that yhoha is a force in unifying the world.

On June 21 when the world twisted a knuckle and bent a knee to salute yoga, countrymen themselves dedicated a part of their busy everyday lives to the ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice. "Yoga is lovely because it is ancient yet modern, it is constant yet evolving", he said.

Consul-General Vipul said: "For the last three years, we have been celebrating International Yoga Day with great enthusiasm just as today". Yoga increases the flexibility of the body, makes it toned and supple, and also helps maintain a good body weight.

Wearing a white T-shirt and a pair of white pants, the PM who arrived at the event around 7 am joined the yoga enthusiasts in performing around 20 asanas in tune with commentary delivered by Dr Ishwar Basavaraddi, Director of Morarji Desai National Institute of Yoga under the Ayush Ministry.

"The word yoga means to unite". A research exercise was undertaken on the spot by all present to introspect on reasons for not adopting yoga in their daily routine, said the statement.

Reports were doing the rounds from past few days that unlike its ally the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the ruling JD (U) is not interested about celebrating the fourth edition of the International Yoga Day.

"The gems of India's unique heritage, such as yoga, will be respected by the world at large only when we ourselves respect our culture and traditions", he said. "The mountains around here inspire people to do yoga".

The Prime Minister had arrived here on Wednesday night to participate in the main event on the International Yoga Day. On this day, which is dedicated to the inner and outer well-being of human body, people across the world practice yoga in groups.

June 21 is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and thus has special significance in many parts of the world.

The Indian High Commission in Dhaka also celebrated Yoga day along with 10,000 participants at Bangabandhu National Stadium.
