On December 11, 2014, the United Nations General Assembly declared June 21 as 'International Day of Yoga', months after Modi had proposed the idea. Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the country to mark the occasion of International Yoga day at 6:30 am today.
"Coronavirus specifically attacks our respiratory system, which gets strengthened by pranayama or breathing exercise. Yoga helps us to improve immunity. The asanas help the strength of our body and the metabolism of our body. Yoga deepens the bond of humanity. It does not discriminate. It goes beyond race, colour and gender. Anybody can embrace it."
