Addressing the participants, Bedi said, “We are all moving towards one world. Yoga is real humanity. Yoga is coming from our Vedas. All over the world yoga is being celebrated as it unites mind, body and soul. Yoga stands for unity and harmony.”

Director General of Police of Puducherry Sunil Kumar Gautam, Secretary to Lt Governor G.Theva Needhi Das, Vice Chancellor of Pondicherry University Anisa Basheer Khan, officials of various departments and representatives of different organisations were among the participants.

The entire two km stretch of beach road was thronged by long rows of participants.

Bedi later told reporters that yoga “is the best gift India has given to nine billion people across the world. I want to thank my leader Prime Minister Narendra Modi who took this cause up in General Assembly of the United Nations (for declaring International Yoga Day)…,” she said.

By the initiative, Modi had united the humanity, she said.

The Lt Governor said she was committed to serve “…every breath of my life to realise the objective of prosperous Puducherry and prosperous India.”
