Yoga is a holistic system where the mind and body act hand in hand. It is beyond physical exercises. I am not a regular practitioner of yoga. I do other forms of exercises. I wish I had practised yoga from a young age. I hope to practise it regularly.

Yoga is important to lead a healthy life. Some people attach a religious angle to yoga, which is not correct. The practice of yoga started much before Hinduism, as a religion, came into existence. So many in western nations practise yoga, as a form of exercise. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has done a lot to promote yoga, which needs to be commended.
