Visvesvaraya museum  chips in with exhibition

 An exhibition on the ancient practice of Yoga was inaugurated at the Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum (VITM), on the occasion of the first International Yoga Day, on Sunday.

The exhibition started with 150 people from across the city participating in various Yoga sessions in the morning.

Later, the exhibition was formally inaugurated by Nimhans director Dr P Satish Chandra. Speaking with Deccan Herald, K G Kumar, director of VITM, highlighted a number of aspects of the exhibition.

“The exhibition deals with a number of subjects such as the evolution of Yoga in various periods of history, various streams and schools of Yoga and the science behind it,” said Kumar. The exhibition will go on till July 15 at VITM. It is also being showcased at the Advanced Centre of Yoga at Nimhans till June 26. Dr Chandra talked about the benefits of Yoga and how, especially for children and the youth, it can serve as a life-saver at a time when there is intense competition in all fields. Highlighting the complexity of the functioning of the brain, he said while medical science knows about brain as a physical organ, no one knows about “mind.”

He said that there was a need to adopt this age-old knowledge at an early age to reap its benefits better. A quiz on Yoga and the screening of a movie on the history of Yoga were the other highlights.
