From politicians to fitness enthusiast and army personnel, hundreds of Indians practiced Yoga today (June 21) at gatherings organised across the country. Indian prime minister Narendra Modi, a yoga enthusiast himself, led a mega event in Ranchi, Jharkhand, to celebrate the fifth edition of International Day of Yoga. In 2015, when it was first observed, over 35,000 people, including Modi, and dignitaries from 84 nations, performed 21 asanas (bodily postures) for 35 minutes on Rajpath in New Delhi.
