“We hear so many stories of young children suffering from serious health conditions, which we believe can be avoided. No one has the time to think about their physical and mental health, so we decided to take matters into our hands,” said Dinesh Panjwani, principal of RD National College, Bandra, one of the 14 institutes that is part of Hyderabad (Sind) National Collegiate Board (HSNCB).
After concluding a basic course in yoga for around 200 students between June and July 2017, more than 4,000 students participated in an event during which the students trained in yoga displayed their knowledge.
“Each of these  students can now teach basic yoga. This way, we can reach out to more people,” said Panjwani, adding the campaign was undertaken by students of all 14 colleges under HSNCB simultaneously.
