Today is an important day for yoga in India. The Supreme Court has asked the Centre for Policy Research to take a decision within three months on pleas seeking framing of a national yoga policy and making yoga compulsory for students of classes one to eight across the country. Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay, a lawyer and Delhi spokesperson, led the pleas, seeking for the provision of "standard textbooks of 'yoga and health education' for students of Class I-VIII keeping in spirit various fundamental rights such as right to life, education and equality." He feels that the right to health cannot be secured without providing 'yoga and health education' to all children or framing a 'national yoga policy' to promote and propagate it.


We are rather inclined to agree and feel very heartened by this important move :)
