With an aim to beautify the area and spread the message of yoga, the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has decided to draw the paintings on walls of prominent locations in the city. This was said by secretary, NDMC Chanchal Yadav while inspecting the pace of painting work being carried out at Uma Shankar Dikshit Marg and Rajinder Prasad opposite Shastri Bhawan in Delhi.
“The Council has decided to spread the message of yoga. Apart for beautification, this is also generating a lot of curiosity among the onlookers and creating a buzz for the forthcoming Yoga Day. Many students and children are volunteering along with professional artists and painting material has been provided by the Shalimar Paints free of cost,” she said.
The secretary said that this project is NDMC’s effort for making yoga a mass movement and these are build up activities for the grand celebrations planned by the NDMC for the 3rd International Day of Yoga on June, 21 to be observed at Central Park in Connaught Place.
In order to organise the International Yoga Day on June 21, yoga camps are being held at Lodhi Garden, Talkatora Garden and Nehru Park on a regular basis.
