A year after the first International Day of Yoga was celebrated the world over, yoga enthusiasts were back again Tuesday morning rushing forward, raising and extending their arms, and gradually inhaling and exhaling.
The day was presented when Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi effectively campaigned the United Nations to devote 24 hours to the antiquated order in September 2013.
This year, Mr. Modi joined a huge number of people in the northern Indian city of Chandigarh as they hauled their mats out for a monstrous exhibition. World over, 173 nations will celebrate the control Tuesday.
“We are disconnected from ourselves in today’s time. Yoga helps us reconnect with ourselves,” Mr. Modi said, addressing the participants in the event.
