International Day of Yoga will be celebrated on the 21st of June across the world. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will participate in the Yoga Day programme at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. The theme of Yoga Day this year is -‘Yoga For Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’. PM Modi has, in his Mann Ki Baat programme on All India Radio, urged listeners many times over the years to take up Yoga for their physical and mental well-being.
Mann Ki Baat has thus played a seminal role in taking PM Modi’s message of Yoga to people in all corners of the country. In his Mann Ki Baat address yesterday, Prime Minister had said the 21st of June is a great opportunity for people who are not connected with Yoga to take up the practice.
