World Yoga Day, Wimbledon Championships, media reports about our Prime Minister's recent visit to Russia and other countries (with reference to how youngsters in other countries like Indian music etc). remind us that though we may belong to different countries with diverse traditions, we can work together as a good community at large in the global village. 

Thanks to Yoga legends such as Swami Ramdev and sports persons such as Leander Paes, Sania Mirza and Sumit Nagal who seem to take our country to great heights. Thanks to Narendra Modiji's campaign for World Yoga Day.
