International Yoga Day was celebrated with great pomp and gusto last month, and now the government is all set to extend the festivities to international tourists. Tourist visas were earlier allotted to only those wishing for the whole ‘eat, pray, love’ experience, but now a new criteria will allow visitations for a ‘short term yoga programme’. All foreigner registration offices in the nation have been requested to act according to this new move. Yoga is swiftly being comprehended as a practice with health benefits recognised by science, the ability to bring about inner peace and a highly recommended way of life. This move is a positive step towards that direction, if only to get in more tourists.
