International Yoga Day 2017: A grand success amid bizarre antics by Modi Government


Modi Government has been literally in the limelight these days with numerous infamous Ban Saga and bizarre claims without any credibility or sensibility. In the absence of great Classical Greek Philosophers like Plato and Socrates, modern Philosophers are finding it tough to come up with valid logical theories or arguments to tackle these above mentioned bizarre instances like “Recent claim of Rajasthan High Court Judge, Justice Mahesh Chandra Sharma that “Peacocks are lifelong celibate” and thus, Peahens get impregnated by tears” and not to mention the ridiculous Momo news.

Most recent being the release of a Booklet called “Mother and Child Care” ahead of the International Day for Yoga on 21 June 2017. Compiled by the central Government funded, Central Council for Research in Yoga and Naturopathy (CCRYN), this book was released by Honorable Union Minister Shripad Naik. It contains absolutely preposterous advice for Pregnant Woman without any scientific or medical credibility. The book advises the newly pregnant ladies to avoid non-vegetarian food, to embrace complete abstinence from Sex after the conception and not to divulge into any other “dirty” thoughts except spiritual thoughts in order to ensure a birth of a healthy baby. This gave rise to a media uproar and many criticism including a few doctors and Yoga experts who spoke against the ignorant Modi Government which might mislead the innocent illiterate Women and off course the feminist group for advocating absolute nuisance to Women.

Nevertheless, one thing which deserves our applaud is the effort of our honorable Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi who suggested The United Nations General Assembly(UNGA) to declare a day as International Yoga Day. As per his suggestion, International Yoga Day is a reality now and today, June 21 is being celebrated as the International Yoga Day 2017. By the look of it and the storm arising in the internet with various pictures and videos, it seems like it was a grand success. It is indeed a very good initiative by Naredra Modi to make people aware of Yoga which is one of the most important paths towards leading a healthy life both physical and mental, which people often tend to or forced to ignore due to hectic mechanical life. It is also a matter of pride for Indians as every year we lead the World in this realm of Yoga, ensuring a grand celebration that originated from our ancient Yogic Traditions.

These are some of the brilliant pictures we stalked in the internet #internationalyogaday2017

Happy International Yoga Day! 💕 Commemorating this day is a photo of the day I got impaled by the Tokyo Tower. 😁 💕 I don't like doing backbends in general because my throat would feel so tight that I won't be able to swallow and breathe calmly. Yes yes, just impale me can? I find backbends in general challenging and can't remain in this position for too long. I'll keep telling myself to remember to swallow before bending and to breathe as calmly and as normally as possible. 💕 The spine is meant to bend in both directions, so while you’ve probably only worked it in one direction all day (bending forward), backbends like Camel Pose can restore the natural flexibility of your spine. 💕 The Camel Pose also: – Increases flexibility in the spine – Relieves lower back pain – Opens the chest and shoulders – Improves respiration and circulation – Opens up the hips – Expands the abdominal region, hence improving digestion. 💕 Give it a go — close your eyes and picture yourself arching your chest and reaching your hands back to clasp around your ankles. Remember that reaching a yoga pose is a journey and not a destination. When you finally arrive at your own unique location, it’s totally worth it physically, mentally and emotionally. : : : : : #internationalyogaday #internationalyogaday2017 #camelpose #ustrasana #backbend #benefitsofyoga #yogalife #yogalove #yogaeverywhere #yogabeginner #lousybeginner #silhouettephotography #parkhoteltokyo #tokyotower #tokyocityscape #roomwithaview #viewfrommywindow #tokyolife #ilovejapan #japantravels #iamjolenetravels
