India might’ve won 2 Guinness Records on International Yoga Day, and then BJP leader Ram Madhav might’ve stirred a controversy over Vice President Hamid Ansari’s absence which backfired because it turns out Ansari was not invited in the first place! But the most fun of all was DMDK chief Vijaykanth’s attempt to Yoga, which looked like his first ever try at the ancient practice, and you got to see it!!
Captain-Vijaykanth
The video opens with a shaky Vijaykanth, wearing his trademark all-white clothing, as he moves towards the stage where a young boy performs asanas perfectly. Vijaykanth stops to watch the young volunteer and shakes his head as if its cake walk. But when he actually tries to do the poses, he finds out the hard way, that yoga indeed needs a lot of practice.

The clueless DMDK chief seems lost, looking around to understand what is happening. He then takes help from a fellow volunteer and learns how to sit straight! Hilarious moments go ride up hill when its time for breathing exercises. He doesn’t know which nostril to press and which to release. So, there is this awkward moment when he pauses to stare at his own fingers.

Throughout the seven minute laughter-riot, the DMDK leader, flinches, winks, staggers, almost-falls and attempts teaching yoga to his 100-or-so party members.

International Yoga Day, this 21st June, 2015 was something on a grand scale for India, as it achieved what it wanted to in a nutshell, two Guinness World Record. The NAMO government had already been planning on it for a long time, the grandeur of the Yoga day was felt country wide and especially the capital Delhi.
end
One of the Guinness World Records  was for 35,985 participants performing Yoga asanas at one venue (the most at at a single known time), which earlier was in 2005; 29,973 students from 362 schools performing Yoga in Gwalior.

The second record was for the most number of nationalities at a Yoga Lesson, a category introduced for the first time for an yoga event. The minimum criteria set for any yoga event to enter the record books was participation of at least 50 nationalities and 84 nationalities performed Yoga at Rajpath.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was also seen performing Yoga at Rajpath along with officials of various ministries, schoolchildren, NCC cadets, Army personnel and officials. Celebrations were held in the national capital after the United Nations had in December declared June 21 as International Yoga Day, with 177 countries voting in favor of the resolution.

Yoga in air, okay this is new and International Yoga day is soaring high. SpiceJet has collaborated with Insha Foundation of Sadhuguru to conduct mid-air yoga sessions on some of its Boeing flights this Sunday.

There’s a form of yoga named as “Upa Yoga” which the SpiceJet crew and the Isha Foundation instructors will perform at a height of 35,000 feet on June 21, the International Yoga Day.
5

According to the airline, approximately 50 dedicated Isha instructors and SpiceJet crew members, who have been specially trained to perform Upa Yoga, will undertake a 10-minute session onboard select Boeing flights across the SpiceJet network.

Passengers onboard the flights will be encouraged to participate in the yoga exercises while seated, SpiceJet said in a release. Upa is a simple yet powerful style of yoga that activates the joints, muscles and energy system and incorporates pranayams.

Now SpiceJet would be the first airline in the world to demonstrate yoga onboard.  Also in addition to the mid-air yoga several hundred Isha Foundation volunteers will perform a simple form of yoga, ‘namaskar mudra’, at SpiceJet check-in counters and boarding gates at select airports.

While Yoga is supposedly to do well for health, but this matter here has brought much of an ill health somehow, with the Narendra Modi government planning to make yoga compulsory in schools; The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) is all against it.
1
AIMPLB has warned that it would stage a nationwide campaign against the order that makes yoga and surya namaskars compulsory in schools. The AIMPLB also said it would move to court in order to demand the cancellation of the government’s order.
2

The AIMPLB calls this as an attempt to impose Hindu religious practices through the school curriculum and Modi government’s policies illegal and against the Constitution.
3

As to why they are against it, they say that “Surya namaskar should not be made mandatory in government schools,” because Muslims bowed only before ‘Allah.’
4
However, defending the government, Union Minister Mukhtar Naqvi said that there will be no imposition of any order and that the issue must not be politicized. “Those who have problem should not do it, there should be no politics on yoga,” Naqvi said.

The amazing capability of children often amazes us but this is one kind of prodigy. Shruti Pandey at the age of 6 got the distinction of being the youngest yoga instructor in the world. However, this type of talent one can say runs in the family with her brother making it to the Limca Book of Records when he was only 5 year old by learning all 84 yoga positions.

ft
What makes Shruti special is that she has been teaching yoga unlike her brother. Her students include : businessmen, teachers, housewives and elderly pensioners.

“She’s a fast learner and a perfectionist. She grasps techniques quickly unlike kids her own age, who get bored with something as patience consuming as yoga. Within just six months of her training, she surprised everyone by doing the toughest positions with ease and perfection,” said her trainer, Hari Chetan who set up the retreat some thirty-five years ago.

While Shruti says “It feels good when people follow my instructions, I feel like a real teacher… I got interested in yoga after seeing my brother do it. I tried picking it up myself but it was too hard. So I asked my parents to send me to yoga classes,”

Shruti has mastered some of yoga’s most challenging positions. She can hold her entire body on the strength of her little arms and hang her legs right over her head backwards. Her students are in awe of her capabilities and many have stated that her class has changed their attitudes about coping with life and its many pressures.

It has been repeatedly reported that Arvind Kejriwal suffers from cough that is chronic. He is sometimes seen using an asthama inhaler. Yes. It is that bad! At a recent programme in Delhi, Arvind was seen coughing persistently. Narendra Modi who watched this chuckled. He was heard commenting to his fellow BJP member, “Finally that man will be busy coughing and will not have time to pass nasty comments on our party as such. He deserves it”.

When asked about what he was telling his fellow BJP member, he quickly covered it up saying that he was enquiring if his own personal Yoga therapist, Dr. H.R. Nagendra, will be available for a consultation for Arvind Kejriwal. That was quick, wasn’t it?

Later that day, on a call with Nagendra, it was confirmed that Narendra Modi had suggested that he diagnose Arvind Kejriwal and prescribe the right medication and yoga therapy to help him get rid of his chronic cough. And Arvind Kejriwal has begun taking yoga sessions with Nagendra.
