Brimming with excitement and energy, people gathered in large numbers at Sujanpur tira ground on Wednesday to mark the third International Day for Yoga, even as pre-dawn showers played a bit of a spoilsport.
The chief guest was the founder of the Art of Living, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Several leaders, including Union Minister Smriti Irani, Leader of Opposition Prem Kumar Dhumal, MP Shri. Anurag Thakur were also present on stage doing Yoga .
Though rains in the early hours had turned the mats soggy, the number of people joining the celebrations, continued to build up. Yoga was arranged for about 35 thousand people in Chaugan. During this Sri Sri Ravi Shankar told people about different types of yoga actions. He also made people aware about their benefits.
