People in India and abroad woke up to an early-morning call to celebrate the second International Yoga Day on Tuesday with much enthusiasm.
From Chandigarh to Madhya Pradesh and from London to Geneva, people from all walks of life performed postures of the ancient discipline.
The United Nations General Assembly declared June 21 as the International Day of Yoga in December 2014. Over 190 countries, including 40 Islamic nations, supported the move to have a special day for yoga.
The first International Yoga Day was observed across the world on June 21 last year with Modi performing yoga along with 36,000 people at New Delhi’s historic Rajpath.
