As the world eagerly prepares to commemorate International Yoga Day on June 21st, the Border Security Force (BSF) Jawans are taking an active role in the celebrations. Going beyond their duties of safeguarding the nation, these dedicated Jawans are incorporating yoga practices into their routines to ensure their physical and mental well-being. In anticipation of the upcoming event, the BSF Jawans organized a cycle rally to raise awareness about the profound benefits of yoga.
On June 13, 2023, at 6 am, the Jawans of the 70th and 159th battalions gathered at the border to kickstart the cycle rally. A total of 75 Jawans from the 70th Battalion and 113 Jawans from the 159th Battalion enthusiastically participated in this event. The primary objective of the rally was to engage and educate the border villagers about the numerous physical and mental advantages that can be attained through the practice of yoga.
Since the inception of the International Day of Yoga, BSF has included yoga in its daily physical exercise routine. As a result, yoga has become an integral part of the Border Security Force. All officers and Jawans deployed by the Border Security Force to guard the international border have received yoga training to improve their health. Yoga has played an important role in maintaining the mental and physical fitness of the Jawans.
Commanding Officer of the 159th Battalion underscored the significance of practicing yoga and spreading awareness about its transformative benefits. He stated that cycle rally serves as a powerful symbol of unity and commitment, further reinforcing the BSF’s dedication to prioritizing the well-being of their personnel and the communities they serve.
