Third edition of International Yoga Day will be held on June 21 with the main event in Lucknow
June 21 is celebrated as International Yoga Day and the stage is set for the third edition of the event. Tomorrow, Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will perform yoga with 51,000 people in Lucknow. While authorities are busy with last minute preparations for events that will be held across the country, the social media team of Mumbai Police delighted Twitter with some witty yoga puns. On the eve of Yoga Day, Mumbai Police urged drivers to stay calm on the road by practicing #TrafficAnushAasan. The tweets are part of their ongoing campaign to keep road rage in check.
So, drivers who honk too much or shout at fellow commuters, yoga is the answer.
Ahead of PM Modi's visit on International Yoga Day, NGOs and Yoga gurus have been holding practice sessions in Lucknow. The programme begins at 6 in the morning on Wednesday. Events will be held across India and even internationally.
United Nations declared June 21 as the International Yoga Day on December 11, 2014. The first international Yoga Day event was held in 2015 in the capital when PM Modi performed yoga with over 200 million people across India.
