At the beginning of this week, photos of 36 Battalion ITBP in Lohaghat, Uttarakhand, surfaced on the internet, showing their preparations for International Yoga Day 2019. The theme for World Yoga Day 2019 is “Yoga for Heart,” and many major places are expected to observe with the event with great enthusiasm.
