Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Monday, joined the world in sharing his fitness routune on social media.

The 69-year-old leader took to Twitter to share 3D animated videos of him practising yoga asanas.

Modi in a tweet said he was sharing his yoga videos in response to being asked about his fitness routine during the lockdown.

"During yesterday’s #MannKiBaat, someone asked me about my fitness routine during this time. Hence, thought of sharing these Yoga videos. I hope you also begin practising Yoga regularly," he tweeted.

Modi went on to add that he is 'neither a fitness expert nor a medical expert'.

"Practising Yoga has been an integral part of my life for many years and I have found it beneficial. I am sure many of you also have other ways of remaining fit, which you also must share with others," he added in a tweet.

The 'Yoga with Modi' videos are available in several languages.

Last year, ahead of the International Yoga Day in June, PM Modi had shared similar videos to encourage people to practise yoga.

Ma’s The Word

25 Mar, 2020
Chinese billionaire Jack Ma (C) showed his benevolent side as he pitched in to help the world fight the novel coronavirus. The founder of e-commerce major, Alibaba, Ma became the most talked about business figure after he said that he would marshall all available resources at his disposal to take on Covid-19. From donating emergency supplies (1.8M masks, 210K test kits, 36K protective suits, plus ventilators & thermometers) to Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Nepal, Pakistan & Sri Lanka in Asia to donating 20,000 test kits, 100,000 masks and 1,000 medical use protective suits in each of the 54 African countries, the 55-year-old proved that he was a good Samaritan whose charity was not mapped by geographical boundaries. And even as the business magnate didn’t have India in his list of beneficiaries, there was much talk in the country about his act of generosity. And what followed were natural questions: who among India’s rich was doing a Jack Ma?And it’s not just one individual, but a bunch of lion-hearted boardroom tycoons who have taken the pledge to help fight the virus that has thrown life off-track, in India and across the world.
