The International Day of Yoga has been celebrated across the world annually on June 21 since 2015, following its inception in the United Nations General Assembly in 2014. Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice which originated in ancient India. The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his UN address in 2014, had suggested the date of June 21, as it is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and shares a special significance in many parts of the world. Christ College NCC cadets actively participate in International Yoga Day activities. The information (like venue and other details) and protocol regarding the Yoga Day Celebration are passed on to the College Principal by the Rajkot District Authorities, a day in advance, every year, and the NCC unit follow them strictly.
