Indian Universities Asked to Hold Yoga Demos and Exhibitions on International Yoga Day

The United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution in 2014 to observe International Yoga Day on June 21 every year. The University Grants Commission has directed all universities in India to organize a demonstration by yoga practitioners, an exhibition on yoga postures and an online competition on the occasion of International Day of Yoga, 2015.

The University Grants Commission (UGC) secretary, Jaspal S. Sandhu, in a letter to the vice chancellors of all state/deemed/private universities has directed them to observe the International Day of Yoga in a befitting manner and listed activities to be held during the celebration.

In the directive, Sandhu has suggested, "In the morning, a demo by yoga practitioners may be organized on Yoga Day. The willing students and faculties of the universities may practice yoga as shown by the practitioners. The other students/faculties may, however, observe the same. The best participants of the yoga session may be awarded prizes and certificates at a function to be organized on that day. An exhibition on yogic postures may be organized, for which banners may be displayed for awareness on the campus. Online essay competition may be organized and the best students may be awarded with prizes and certificates. Accordingly, you are requested to kindly observe the International Day of Yoga on June 21 by adopting the above mentioned activities in your esteemed university and affiliated colleges and send action taken to UGC by email (ugc.yoga@gmail.com)."
