On the occasion of International Yoga Day on Friday, yoga guru Baba Ramdev announced his first official autobiography, titled "My Life, My Mission". It will release in August, the publisher Penguin said. Sharing the news on Twitter, Ramdev said that although a lot has been written on him by other people, he will now share his life's story in his words. The volume, co-authored by senior journalist Uday Mahurkar, is touted as an one of a kind personal narrative of the life and times of the globally renowned yoga teacher.
"This autobiographical account uncovers the trials, tribulations and triumphs of his life and provides insights into his childhood, his passion for yoga and good health, his friends and foes and the Swadeshi campaign he spearheaded," the leading publishing house said in a Friday statement.

"I hope readers, fans and followers from across the world will read it and be a part of my journey," the 53-year-old Ramdev said about the gripping 'tell-all'.
