Here are moments from my morning exercises.

The 67-year-old posted a 1.48 minute video of his morning routine in which he is seen walking on grass, pebbles, water, and gravel, among other things, and stretching backward on a rock.

Amid all the hullabaloo surrounding the #FitnessChallenge started by Union minister and victor of Olympic silver medalist in shooting, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, in May, all those BJP ministers (including the ones with fat bellies) busy posting their exercise videos on social media have forgotten that with just a few months in their hands before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections they first need to attend to the health of the nation.

"Fitness challenge" is the latest social media trend in which well-known personalities challenge others to adopt in some form of physical exercise in an intention to spread awareness about a healthy and more fit lifestyle.

In 2015, India created two world records on International Yoga Day when PM Modi led the participants at Rajpath in Delhi and recorded the largest yoga class with 35,985 people.
