International Day of Yoga - 21 June


UNO declared 21 June as International Day of Yoga

WHY YOGA DAY? - TO PROMOTE HEALTH OF PEOPLE ACROSS THE WORLD.


http://www.un.org/en/events/yogaday/


UNO in its resolution said

Recognizing that yoga provides a holistic approach to health and well-being,
Recognizing also that wider dissemination of information about the benefits of practising yoga would be beneficial for the health of the world population,

UNO Decides to proclaim 21 June the International Day of Yoga.

http://www.un.org/en/ga/search/view_doc.asp?symbol=A/RES/69/131


Hatha Yoga is a programme of postures to improve health and focus.


It is not a religious ritual. Swamy Vivekananda said so. A religious sansyasi only learns some postures so that he can sit in that posture for hours together to do rituals. A hatha yogi lives for hundred years without any religious activity.

Yoga is now embraced internationally as a physical activity that improves health.

Importance of Social Media in Marketing Media Mix

As of April 2012, social media accounted for 7.4 percent of the marketing budgets of American companies. A survey released from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business indicated that social media share will  rise to 19.5 percent of company marketing budgets within five years. This dramatic increase in funding for social media marketing among corporations signifies that entire careers can be based on the effective use of social media vehicles, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Linkedin for businesses.

World Music Day - June 21


About the Day


In 1976, an American musician, Joel Cohen, employed by the national French radio station, France Musique thought of a day dedicated to celebrating music. in 1982, the thought became reality with the French Government blessing Fete' de la Musique. Two of the caveats to being sanctioned by the official Fête de la Musique organization in Paris are that all concerts must be free to the public, and all

In Paris and Ile-de-France, the return of summer is celebrated in music.

The music day was created in 1982. This nation-wide party of the people has become so important that it has even been exported to over a hundred foreign countries.

On 21st June, both amateur and professional musicians take to the streets to let their creativity run wild. In squares, public gardens and alleyways improvised stages are erected and sound systems blossom at the windows.

Electro DJs, classical, jazz or accordion groups, choirs, French chanson, pop rock or traditional bands...everyone dances and sings with their family and friends in a joyful cacophony.

Bars, concert venues, festivals (and also museums, churches, conservatoires etc...) take the opportunity to remain open until all hours, with free concerts both indoors and on their terraces.

Exceptional free shows are performed by French and international stars, notably in the Place de la Bastille, the Champ de Mars and La Défense.

And to help people get around, public transport services are provided all night long.

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination
and life to everything.”
― Plato

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: "Music is the universal language of mankind."

“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
