It all started with a #FitnessChallenge thrown by cricketing star Virat Kohli at our Prime Minister Narendra Modi on social media, which he gladly accepted. Information & Broadcasting Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore chipped in with a similar campaign #HumFitTohIndiaFit .
Several Union ministers including Piyush Goyal, Jayant Sinha and Kiren Rijiju, and other MPs, notably Meenakshi Lekhi and Manoj Tiwari, participated.
All that they had to do was to post videos of doing physical exercises on social media. Several sportspersons, film stars and other personalities have started posting videos of their physical workouts.
On my part, I posted push-ups that Salman Khan challenged me to do on the sets of Aap Ki Adalat show several years ago. Both of us did push-ups and the audience welcomed it. At that time, Salman had challenged me. Today I want to challenge Salman to post his video of doing physical exercise.
Normally when people ask me the secret of my physical fitness, I say that it is an open secret, known to all, but followed by a few. Waking up on time, keeping control of your diet, doing daily exercises or yoga, and a sound sleep are the main ingredients.
By doing this, one can protect oneself from diseases, the trips to hospitals would be fewer, the pressure on doctors and hospitals will be lesser and medical expenses will come down. If all of us take care of our own body, it can eventually take the form of a mass movement, and this will serve the nation in the long run.
