Washington, Aug 25 : Yoga is gathering tremendous increase in popularity by changing people’s lifestyle that could help in reducing the present day conflicts based on ideologies, culture and religion, Baba Ramdev has said. “It is not only changing people’s life style, but is also becoming a positive business. Now the next phase would be yoga in action,” he said. This would help in reducing the present conflicts based on ideologies, culture and religion, he told PTI over phone from Toronto. Ramdev, who has been coming to the US and the West for the past several years, said there has been tremendous increase in popularity of yoga in this part of the world.
He also spoke about this year’s US presidential election and said the polls could witness increasing political conflict between cultures and civilisations. The same thing is happening in Europe and happened recently in the UK, he said. “In India, there is no conflict between cultures and civilisations but vested interests are trying their best to do so,” he added. Ramdev, who was chief guest at the India Day Parade in New York over the weekend, felt that there is need to make the prestigious annual event more professional and better coordinated but did not elaborate.
Talking about his company, he said in the next three years, Patanjali Ayurveda and other allied companies which is facing a tough competition will defeat other multinational companies.
