Along with politicians, members of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police force also marked the day by performing yoga at various locations, including northern Ladakh (top). Yoga at ITBP’s Animal Training School in Lohitpur was performed along with dogs, and on horseback.
Dogs of the Border Security Force were trained to perform yoga in Jammu.
Civilians, too, posted their workout videos on the internet to validate their participation in the festivities.
