2015 : FIRST INTERNATIONAL DAY OF YOGA COMMEMORATION:-
Yoga is a 5000 - year old physical, mental and spiritual practice, having its origin in India, which
aims to transform both body and mind. The idea of an International Day of Yoga was first
proposed by Mr. Narendra Modi (Prime Minister of India) during his speech at the United
Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on September 27 2014. In his UN address, he suggested the
date of June 21, as it is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere ans shares special
significance in many parts of the world.
On December 11 in 2014, the United Nations General Assembly unanimously declared June 21st
as the International Day of Yoga or commonly refered to as Yoga Day. This Yoga day is
celebrated annually on June 21 since its inception in 2015. The first International day of Yoga
was observed world over on June 21, 2015.
To commemorate this, India has issued a 10 rs Bi-metal coin. Another 100 rs coin is also issued
to be included in UNC and proof sets.
