INTERNATIONAL YOGA DAY was celebrated in India at Rajpath, New Delhi on 21st June 2015. Our Prime Minister Shri Narindra Modi led more than thirty five thousand people in mass celebration of the momentous event. In a thirty five minute session, he along with other participants performed 21’asanas.' Special Yoga sessions were organized in most parts of India to mark the important event. Yoga goes global with United Nations declaring 21 June as  INTERNATIONAL YOGA  DAY. Global community showed extraordinary interest by organizing functions and yoga sessions in their countries.

So much has been written about the benefits of practicing yoga, which originated in India about five thousand years ago.With the passage of time, it almost got relegated to an insignificant position. Our war torn and stress ridden world direly needs a holistic system which brings peace and harmony in the world and restores our affinity with nature. Yoga promotes fusion of mind, body and soul. It’s scientifically proven 'asanas' lead to a voyage of self-discovery and consciousness of healthy living with the world community. It enhances physical and mental well being by mind body balance. It is like practicing meditation where the focus is on oneself.

I watched and enjoyed the live programme on TV and am sharing some of the images which I clicked from the TV screen. Hope you like them.

    1. Hi Alok,
      Nice to know that you're a yoga aficionado. However,i think regularity is very important,though may be for a few minutes. I also perform some selective exercises for my neck and shoulder pain. If I miss a couple of days, then I'm unable to do all these postings which I manage now.

  6. Amazing shots indeed, so many people doing the yoga. That is really cool! Have a happy new week!
