Wayne CurryJun 22, 2018

Official sources told The New Indian Express that there is no practice of celebrating the International Yoga Day in Mizoram as it is a Christian-majority state.

The JD (U) said Kumar has been practising yoga daily even before it was declared as an International Day by the United Nations in 2015 and "it would be wrong to attach any political meaning to personal decisions".

Calling yoga a "unifying force and passport for wellness", Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with 50,000 volunteers kick-started India's fourth International Yoga Day celebrations in Dehradun on Thursday. Asking people to embrace yoga for a healthy and peaceful life, Modi said yoga presents a ray of hope for future of the world. The enthusiasm of getting from "illness to wellness" is spreading from the busy streets of the South Korean capital, Seoul, to the foot of Eiffel Tower in Paris.

"Life in the UAE is very fast-paced and yoga is especially valuable in helping us counter the stresses of everyday life, in restoring a sense of calm", he said.

When contacted, Trinamool Congress (TMC) secretary general and state parliamentary affairs minister Partha Chatterjee said the party observed the International Yoga Day every year and this year was no exception.

The yoga session lasted around 30 minutes during which he performed different asanas, including pranayama and breathing exercises.

Addressing the gathering at Friday, he said, "In today's fast changing time, Yoga binds together a person's body, brain and soul, hence making one experience a feeling of peace".

On Salah's absence, he added: "If Mo Salah had been on the pitch, I'm sure Egypt would have benefited". The World Cup Egypt vs Uruguay match will be played at Ekaterinburg Arena, Russia.

Let's take a look at how the world is marking the occasion.

The popularity of Yoga is going to increase not only in India but also in China, he said. "Yoga is attractive because it is ancient yet modern, and it is constantly evolving", he added.

He revealed that he began practicing yoga when his father brought home a poster of 32 yoga postures, and "for over 25 years now I've been practicing yoga regularly".

"Yoga knows no boundaries of age, gender, caste, creed or religion. yoga helps people focus inward and helps people attain peace, and this makes them be at peace with others too".

In Mumbai, Vice President M Venkiah Naidu and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavais attended a yoga event hosted by the BJP Mumbai chief Ashish Shelar, and Minister of Railways and Coal Piyush Goyal also tweeted pictures from a yoga session he attended in Noida, Uttar Pradesh.

Theresa Ugalahia, one of the few certified psychiatrists in Nigeria, said people are beginning to appreciate the benefits of the practice in the country.
