The entire nation and the world witnessed enthusiastic participation in the International Day of Yoga event.

The entire nation and the world witnessed enthusiastic participation in the International Day of Yoga event.

World leaders, spiritual gurus, diplomats and yoga experts during every year's celebration are overwhelmed by the response of the call given by India at the UN five years ago.

India celebrated the Yoga day with enormous participation of senior political representatives, govt officials and the Hon'ble PM himself, who took the helm to the United Nations to mark such an event.

However, it is very ironical to note that no such enthusiasm or overwhelming response is demonstrated on the occasion of national festivals.

The national festivals as declared signify India's democratic strength in celebrating either an Independence Day or a Republic Day.

As also as we are in 150th Birth Year of Mahatma Gandhi to be celebrated in the upcoming months, the enthusiasm by the people to celebrate these national festivals is ironically dwindling very fast.

There is now an urgent need to restore pride through consistent enthusiasm as demonstrated towards Yoga Day, while celebrating these national festive occasions also.
