India’s Modi leads tens of thousands to do yoga

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi joined tens of thousands of people in performing various yoga ‘asanas’ or exercises to mark the fifth International Yoga Day .Wearing a white T-shirt and track pants, Modi performed breathing and stretching exercises with around 25,000 enthusiasts at eastern Ranchi city’s Prabhat Tara. Modi called on people to embrace yoga and make it a part of their lives. An enthusiastic practitioner of yoga himself, Modi set up a new ministry for yoga in 2015 to promote yoga and traditional medicines as he embarked on a mission to increase awareness about home-grown health treatments. The United Nations (UN) in 2014 declared June 21 as the International Day of Yoga after adopting a measure proposed by Modi. The day is marked by mass practice of yoga and other healthy activities across the world.
