The International Yoga Day was celebrated on 21st June at the University campus to usher in peace, harmony, happiness and success to every soul in the world. Yoga is a mental, physical and spiritual practice that needs to be carried every day, this was a great opportunity to imbibe the value of this discipline. The session was attended by a limited number of faculty and staff with the Vice Chancellor leading from the front. The students unfortunately could not join the event as they were away on vacation. Most of the faculty were on vacation too.
