Yoga a ray of hope in Covid times: PM Modi in address on 7th International Day of Yoga
NEW DELHI: Yoga will be a ray of hope as the world fights the Covid-19 pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in his address on 7th International Day of Yoga.
He said that yoga has been an armour for doctors treating Covid patients, as certain asanas improve the respiratory sy em and resist infection. It also made people strong from within, hel in fighting the disease, Modi said.
June 21 is celebrated as International Day of Yoga since 2015, following its inception in the United Nations General Assembly.
The event this year was a departure from the grand scale of celebrations globally, due to the pandemic situation. The theme for this year was "Yoga for wellness."
"The 'Yoga For Wellness' theme this year has encouraged people even more to perform yoga. I pray that every country, region, and people, stays healthy," he said, adding that the pandemic has not dampened the enthusiasm for yoga worldwide.
The Prime Minister stressed on the need to reach yoga to every corner of the world and the need for fusion of modern technology and ancient scientific knowledge like yoga. Yoga will play a preventive and positive role in healthcare for masses, Modi said.

baba ji... Hinduism is 5000 years old and yoga too...... stop making these platforms as your marketing and event management activities...
Moodi moving out of india permanently is the only ray of hope in Covid times
Curse on the stupid people who ved him
Still living in the Past. Yoga is all nonsense. Eat high prein diet, full of meat, fish, eggs along with plenty of fruits. Go for Walk or jogging and do some amount of weight training . No need for Yoga.
Baba not everyone has vista castle to do yoga.people finding hard to meet basic need and scrambing and getting advise to do yoga..inflation all time high
people staying in small houses, 5-6 people in a room, 10×15 feet, can they do yoga?
Yoga is nonsense, just because some western countries have embraced it, does not mean that we too have follow.
Vaccination at a way faster pace is the only ray of hope for India. Less than 5% vaccination in 6 months is a shame! At this rate, India cannot vaccinate even the herd immunity level in 5 years! With every new wave after lockdown is over, more Indians will die.
What percentage of indians do yoga? Everyone talks about how good yoga but no one does it.
Sir, actually better economy is a ray of hope for future and its your job to do. Let yoga be promed by Baba ramdev alone and you con trate on economy improvement.
modi sold hindusim for a mandir, modi sold india for Ambani, modi sold vaccines for a Nobel, modi sold culture for yoga
That's the ONLY hope we Common people have. In 2nd wave we have seen there was no Bed, Oxygen, Ventilators, Medicines or even space at Cemetery. Only Do Yoga at Home & leave upon mighty God.
No problem with yoga..solve the farmers problem.. addressing about yoga you are not going to solve economic and covid issues..
Morning jogging is best exercise. No yoga bhoga hoga required..
Our favourite actor is back on TV.
No wonder Biden Ji has declared India as the weakest link in US-led 'Quad' alliance. Unfortunately, instead of dealing with the apocalyptic situations and multiple crises in the country, Feku is still busy doing stupid things like declaring victory, holding rallies, buying MLAs, clap hands, clanging utensils, drinking gaumutra, doing yoga, lighting candles, building temples, blaming Nehru and feeding peacocks.
Oh my. Not again. When shall we embrace modernity and be a prosperous nation?
I never seen such despair in the last 40 years.
Someone said "if businessman is a prime minister, then that country will only be dest yed". Proof is there.
I know person who did yoga and miditation since very long.. he had covid and took treatment.. but sadly he died.. neither yoga nor medicine helped..
Proper nutrition, regular aerobic exercise and light weight training is the modern scientific recipe for good health.
When will he start talking about assurance on quality of life, better education, development, employment etc.As a PM he talks about all nonsense
India is gas for a sensible leader.
