Tens of thousands join Indian leader for world yoga day

By Manish Swarup
The Associated Press

DEHRADUN, India — Some 50,000 people gathered with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Himalayan foothills to salute the power of yoga.

Modi, an ardent Hindu nationalist, travelled to the hill town of Dehradun for the fourth International Day of Yoga, and shortly after sunrise was doing yoga exercises with about 50,000 people.

Yoga "is enriching millions of lives all over the world," Modi said in a speech.

He also urged Indians to take pride in their heritage.

"The gems of India’s unique heritage, such as yoga, will be respected by the world at large only when we ourselves respect our culture and traditions," he said.

Tens of thousands of people joined in mass yoga exercises across the country, from staff at the New Delhi airport to middle-class urbanites and students at countless schools.
