Narendra Modi, Prime Minister, of India addressed the gathering from Mysuru. Ashwini Vaishnaw, Minister of Railways, Communications, Electronics and Information Technology, Government of India connected the 75 iconic places from Konark in Odisha. All the locations were connected with Mysuru from where Modi, said “This whole universe starts from our own body and soul. The universe starts from us and Yoga makes us conscious of everything within us and builds a sense of awareness. It starts with self-awareness and proceeds to awareness of the world. When we become aware of ourselves and our world, we begin to spot things that need to be changed, both in ourselves and in the world.” CSMT Mumbai was one of the 75 iconic places connected with Konark and Mysuru.

Lahoti, General Manager said “Yoga helps us fight stress and diseases. Yoga is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and nature.”
