The 7th International Day of Yoga was celebrated in Cachar on Monday, June 21 with the rest of the nation through a programme at India Club Indoor Stadium, Silchar. It was organised by District Administration Cachar in collaboration with the District Health Society.

As the programme started, all the dignitaries present at the programme were felicitated with traditional "Fulon Gamocha" which was followed by the lighting of the lamp.

Silchar MLA, Dipayan Chakraborty spoke at the event and talked about the importance of Yoga.  He said, "Yoga is an ancient Indian practice that helps in maintaining both physical and mental well being, and over the years, it has found popularity in other countries as well. In 2014, our Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modiji proposed marking a day as the International Day of Yoga in his address at the UN General Assembly and the proposal was endorsed by 175 member States, post which the United Nations recognised June 21 as the day to celebrate “Day of Yoga". He also mentioned that the theme for International Yoga Day 2021 has been decided to be "Yoga for well-being”.

The theme decided by the UN focuses on the importance gained by Yoga over the past one and half years due to the pandemic.

"It should be our moral duty to build an immune, healthier and stronger India by adopting yoga as an effective adjunct to prevent such pandemics. So I urge everyone to adopt yoga as a lifestyle that is based on the science of holistic living," the MLA  added.

Speaking at the occasion, Deputy commissioner Cachar, Keerthi Jalli talked about how people, especially the younger generation should inculcate values to keep themselves fit and healthy. "A healthy lifestyle keeps the illness at Bay and here lies the habit of routine exercise and planned diet. Yoga is the great ingredient towards leading a healthy life". Our youth needs to be aware of this and to maintain a healthy body and mind. If they are healthy, they should develop a habit of exercising regularly", she added.

The Deputy Commissioner stressed on maintaining a balanced eating, and further advised that junk food should be avoided and emphasised on the consumption of low-fat foods, less oily food and home-cooked items. "You should eat healthy and digestible foods, with a healthy body there is also a need for a healthy mind, so it is important to do yoga or pranayama on a regular basis," said the Deputy Commissioner.

"In the past, everyone was accustomed to physical labour in various ways through hard work, farming, etc but with the changing age, people are now less interested to do physical work for which they are endangering their lives by inviting various diseases, etc. Therefore, to protect themselves from all sorts of diseases and to lead a healthy, better and happier life, everyone should do exercises regularly and practice yoga, pranayama etc", asserted DC.

Delivering his speech, Superintendent of Police, Vaibhav Nimbalkar, advised everyone to perform regular sessions of yoga, maintain good hygiene, and develop healthy eating habits to build a healthy body.
