Kolkata/IBNS: The British Deputy High Commission, Kolkata, commemorated the International Yoga Day 2022 at Eco Park in New Town.

Yoga is an example of a UK-India living bridge that unites our people, communities and countries together, an official statement said.
 
"We celebrate International Yoga Day every year by practicing it together with our staff and community. This year, we commemorated the day by inviting medical professionals from Charnock Hospital, children from a NGO, youth, entrepreneurs and people from the tourism fraternity at Eco Park, New Town," the official statement said.

Nick Low, British Deputy High Commissioner to Kolkata who actively participated in the yoga session said: “India and the United Kingdom have much in common. Our living bridge of people-to-people links.  More than two centuries of shared history, strong democracies, connected cultural institutions and the English language.  And each of our countries wields great soft power."

"The global influence of India and the United Kingdom is attractive, persuasive and, above all, non-threatening.  Yoga, deeply rooted in spirituality, is at the heart of India’s soft power – perhaps India’s greatest gift to the world.  Today I am delighted to join friends and colleagues in celebrating the force for good that is yoga,” he said.

Debashis Sen, Chairman, NKDA the Chief Guest of the event participated in some of the yoga sessions. He encouraged the visitors to explore Eco Park and asked them to visit the newly opened attraction of the Aircraft Museum in New Town.

Almost 100 people attended the yoga day event organised by our office.
