Besides the landslide victory of his party in the recent Lok Sabha and being the most followed leader in the world, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also known as being a staunch yoga practitioner.
Before engaging in various yoga asanas with almost 40,000 other participants, Modi delivered a speech to urge people to make yoga an integral part of their life. Modi also added that yoga is India’s gift to the world and that yoga is above faith.
PM Modi also said the Indian government is taking initiatives to include Yoga in preventive healthcare. He added, “We should make efforts to take yoga from cities to villages and tribal areas. Yoga is above religion, caste, colour, gender and region, it is above everything”. PM Modi joined the 5th International Yoga Day celebrations at the Prabhat Tara ground in Ranchi, Jharkhand.
