Residents thronged the venues to participate in the day, which has gained particular prominence under the aegis of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
On the occasion of International Yoga Day today, Noida's parks, clubhouses, community centres and open spaces located across sectors — 20,21, 26, 34, 39, 44, 45, 47, 50, 53, 55, 71, 74, 77 and 100 — turned into sites of bustling morning activity.
Residents thronged the venues to participate in the day that has gained particular prominence under the aegis of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Though events were held at various sectors, the one held at Noida Stadium witnessed the largest attendance. Noida MLA Pankaj Singh, too, was seen at the stadium striking yoga poses.
Children and youngsters from various government schools and colleges too joined in, lending the place a youthful energy.
Akash Singh, a resident of Sector 50, said, “It was great to see so many people during the morning —usually only senior citizens are seen doing yoga, but today a large number of youngsters joined in. But it’s not just about a day — it should be turned into a lifestyle.”
The scene was the same at Indirapuram, with societies organizing early-morning events to mark the day.
