Extract of Irony:
“The irony of India is even no bigger war has been completed without India, be it both the ‘World Wars’. In the list of martyrs ‘Indian Soldiers’ remained at the top spot. But, India never led to the start of any war; both the ‘World Wars’ were fought under ‘British India’.
India at the same time gave birth to the apostle of ‘Peace’ – Mahatma Gandhi. He is regarded in every corner of the world, and so are his teachings of non – violence. He truly represented Indian values of tolerance, peace, unity, and brotherhood in International diaspora. Gandhi was an ardent follower of yoga and its asanas.”
For a moment, we deviated from the path of yoga, to India’s bigger role on international platform from many centuries.
