The 4th International day of Yoga 2018 was celebrated with great zeal and enthusiasm across all Departments and Colleges of the University of Delhi. The celebrations at the University were inaugurated by Hon’ble Vice Chancellor, Prof. Yogesh K. Tyagi at Gandhi Bhawan.
In his inaugural address, Prof. Tyagi emphasized on the importance of Yoga for physical as well as spiritual health. He expressed concern that why we do not implement Yoga in our daily lifestyle and mentioned that Yoga should become a part of our routine activities. He requested all present to reflect on reasons for not doing yoga. He also raised concern that not much research was done on this despite knowing the benefits of doing Yoga. A research exercise was undertaken on the spot by all present to introspect on reasons for not adopting Yoga in their daily routine.
There was active participation by students, faculty and staff of the University of Delhi. The activities included Demonstration of Yogasana and Meditation by NSS and NCC student volunteers. Special lectures / seminars / workshops were held on the importance of Yoga and its impact on physical, mental and spiritual well-being in Colleges and Departments.
