Assam joined the nationwide celebrations of International Yoga Day, hosting various events across the state to commemorate the occasion.

Meanwhile, in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi led the 10th International Yoga Day celebrations at the Sher-i-Kashmir International Conference Centre (SKICC), situated on the banks of Dal Lake. This visit to the region is significant as it marks Modi’s first since beginning his third consecutive term as Prime Minister.

This year’s theme, “Yoga for Self and Society,” emphasizes the dual impact of yoga in enhancing personal wellness and promoting community health.

Since its establishment in 2014, International Yoga Day has been celebrated annually on June 21, following its recognition by the United Nations General Assembly on Prime Minister Modi’s proposal. The SKICC event aims to encourage participation at the grassroots level and advocate for the benefits of yoga in rural areas and beyond.
