The program will be held in 180 countries at locations including Opera House, Sydney, Australia, Angkor Wat Temple, Cambodia and Victoria Falls Bridge, Zimbabwe. The main event will be held in Ranchi, Jharkhand, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be present.

 

The festivities for the International Day Yoga Day (IDY) are coming out of the embassy complex this year, to accommodate the high number of participants, and to the prestigious places around the world, like the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.

 

On June 21, the day is celebrated.

Our mission abroad is currently planning to organize a function in some of the most famous monuments internationally. The popularity of the day has increased in people’s participation and the embassy complex will not be able to accommodate everyone. Therefore, the concerned embassies collaborated and made it possible, “said Vaishya Rajesh Kotecha, Secretary of AYUSH Ministry.

 

Ministry of AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Greek, Siddha and Homeopathy) is the nodal ministry for observation of IDY across the country. “Even if local organizations and individuals are organizing yoga programs at major locations around the world, but this is the first time that the mission of India is doing so abroad,” said Kotecha.

The program will be held in 180 countries at locations including Opera House, Sydney, Australia, Angkor Wat Temple, Cambodia and Victoria Falls Bridge, Zimbabwe. The main event will be held in Ranchi, Jharkhand, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be present.

 

Each year, millions of people watch the practice of common yoga protocols globally.

 

In countries where lack of Yoga experts, the AYUSH Ministry is sending instructors from India. So far, eight to ten trainers are being sent for the care and monitoring of the program… The total expenditure on the preparations for these events is 8 crores. “Embassy is holding hands only with local bodies, who have shown interest in organizing the program, the government is only spending on human resources and other small things,” said Kotecha.
