In an attempt to create a world record, 1000 women practised water yoga in Gujarat, ahead of the International Yoga Day on Jun 21. The Gujarat government has instructed all the district collectorates and civic bodies to organise a week-long training session for the participants to acquaint them with the protocol of the event. Yoga guru Baba Ramdev showed his appreciation on June 20 for the National Democratic Alliance (NDA)'s efforts for celebrating the International Yoga Day on a huge scale in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
Ramdev commented on the preparations done for the event by saying, "From the GMDC ground to the AES ground, five grounds have been prepared for the event. More than 100 gates would be there. 3-4 lakh people are expected to attend the event."
