The yoga way


The article, “What yoga can teach us” (Editorial page, June 17) suggests that if international negotiations started with the practice of yoga, it could result in a calm ambience and allow for wise decisions to evolve. My take on this is that as the land of science, we in India should implement and demonstrate to the world how our discussions in Parliament and elsewhere take place in a calm and quiet ambience created by its practice and how wise and mature decisions are churned out. In the current situation, many of the ardent advocates of yoga in India are not found to be in a state of calm and maturity, in turn provoking divisive tendencies in society. More often than not they are found to make emotionally explosive remarks to instigate disquiet rather than peace. A theory of science has to be proven for its acceptance.
