In short, it is a medicine for many problems. It is an invaluable gift from India’s ancient tradition.
WHY YOGA DAY? : Everyone should make yoga part of their day to day life. This day was meant to inspire people nationally and internationally to practice this daily, which is a great initiative by Indian Prime Minister Mr. Modi ji. Preparation for a grand celebration of this day started at least three weeks ago. Even in many cities, people gathered to celebrate International Yoga Day. Students reached their schools or collages early Sunday morning.
35,000 officials, soldiers and students attended the main event on Rajpath in Delhi, including PM Narendra Modi. 300 million Rupees ($4.67m; £2.97m) were incurred to conduct the Delhi event.
Was it fair to spend this big amount for this motive? Will this investment give any worthy return? Wasn’t there any another low cost and more effective alternative? And who is responsible for accident of 3 young school girls of Gujarat who are badly injured while going for yoga day?
WHAT PEOPLE DID? : People gathered in numbers and it seems to be a really successful event, but the true success will be disclosed after survey on how many people actually accepted yoga as part of their lives. People gathered for numerous reasons apart from its main motive. Some highly educated people wanted to prove that they are well aware citizen. Some attended the ceremony because their neighbors or friends were going. And some youngsters went there to post their selfies on social media websites. The one who really do yoga everyday didn’t rush in crowd but did it at his home or at Joggers Park as he daily does.
THE BETTER ALTERNATIVE: To serve the motive of this day, the cheaper and more effective alternative is to make yoga a compulsory subject and a part of the syllabus in academics. Yoga could be the 1st period in school and collages. Experienced faculties in this area should be provided. According to me, there should be specialized courses, universities and degrees in yoga specialization to become a yoga trainer or teacher. Working out for a single day doesn’t make it really a successful day. If a child will be taught from childhood till he leaves his collage, it will make him habitual to yoga and he will never leave it.
MESSAGE: Everyone should do yoga for their self; yoga is very powerful and will give you benefits, if it is practiced regularly. Don’t wait for any compulsion, simply start it today and follow it regularly for yourself. Ask your family to do so. For inspiration visit your nearest park where you will find that even aged people doing meditation. Be the change, see the difference.
