UN declares June 21 as ‘World Yoga Day’


The United Nations has declared June 21 as the World Yoga Day. The decision, taken at the UN General Assembly, is being seen as a proud moment for India. It is also for the first time that such an initiative has been proposed and implemented by any country in the UN body in less than 90 days. It recognized that Yoga “provides a holistic approach to health and well-being” and that wider the dissemination of information about benefits of practising Yoga would be beneficial for the health of the world population.
