Recognizing the universal appeal of Yoga, owing to its demonstrated benefits towards immunity building and stress relief, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) proclaimed 21st June as the International Day of Yoga (IDY) on 11th December 2014. Since 2015, this day has been observed all over the world in ever growing numbers, with the objective of reminding the people across the globe about the benefits of Yoga, and to build enduring public interest in Yoga by highlighting its importance and contributions to public health.
The preparations for the 7th International Day of Yoga (IDY 2021) have already begun and the Ministry of AYUSH (MoA) is looking forward to an active participation from the people.
With this backdrop, MoA has launched a quiz competition to commemorate the occasion of the 7th IDY, and test citizen’s awareness about Yoga, past IDY observances, and various initiatives being conducted this year by the Ministry.
On successful completion each participant will be awarded with an e-certificate marking their participation and completion.
