Modi calls for ‘one earth, one family, one future’ at U.N. yoga event

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi led a celebration of International Yoga Day at the United Nations in New York on Wednesday. The United Nations designated June 21 as the International Day of Yoga in 2014, following a proposal by Modi.

During the event, Modi called on people to come together to achieve the vision of one earth, one family, and one future. He emphasized the power of yoga in promoting health, happiness, kindness towards oneself and others, as well as fostering friendship, peace, and a sustainable future.

Modi’s visit to the United States includes discussions with President Joe Biden, aimed at strengthening the partnership between the two countries. While concerns have been raised about the human rights situation under Modi’s leadership, this trip marks his first official state visit to the United States.

After the yoga event, Modi paid tribute to Indian independence leader Mahatma Gandhi, who played a pivotal role in India’s freedom struggle. Gandhi’s nonviolent approach led the nation to independence from British rule in 1947. However, he was assassinated by a Hindu radical in 1948.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres commended Prime Minister Modi for his efforts in promoting understanding of yoga and its numerous benefits in a video message to the yoga event.
