Talking about the weather in Ranchi, tomorrow we expect light rain and thundershowers during the morning and afternoon hours.

The ministry has urged all ministries and departments of the central government, all state governments, and other related institutions to work in a coordinated manner to observe the day and secure long-term gains in the area of public health and wellbeing.

The concept of International Day of Yoga was first proposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 27, 2014 - during his speech at the UN General Assembly. Thereafter, a draft resolution on 'International Day of Yoga' was introduced by India's Ambassador to UN, Asoke Kumar Mukerji.

The draft received support from 177 nations, the highest number of co-sponsors for any UNGA resolution. Thereafter, the United Nations proclaimed June 21 as the International Day of Yoga. On June 21, 2015, nearly 35,985 people, including PM Modi and dignitaries from 84 nations, performed 21 asanas (yoga postures) for 35 minutes in New Delhi the capital of India.
