PM Narendra Modi's International Day of Yoga began in the early hours of Sunday in the country, with devotees around the globe also joining in. Here are some of them.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi joined nearly 37,000 fellow participants at Rajpath on Sunday to mark the International Day of Yoga. The UN resolution, which Modi had proposed during his last visit to New York, has seemingly garnered significant support, with everyone -- from celebrities to Muslim groups -- agreeing to participate in the event.
