The date the photograph was taken was unclear but sources said it was sent to the Indian High Commission in Colombo today (Monday).

The photograph shows the Prime Minister doing Yoga while his wife Shiranthi Rajapaksa is seen doing a head-stand.

“Our sincere gratitude to @PresRajapaksa,Hon’ble PM, and Madam Shiranthi Rajapaksa for this inspiring  glimpse of one of your #yoga sessions. Millions of #yoga enthusiasts will continue to be enthused to see you make Yoga a part of your lives. Respect,” the Indian High Commission in Sri Lanka tweeted. 

International Yoga Day is observed today, the 21st of June, following its inception in the United Nations General Assembly in 2014. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Soon, the Indian leaders will be in Sri Lanka to do neck and shoulder massage to the Rajapaksas, in order to beat China :—)))))

    • They may have to go well below the “neck and shoulder region.” if they want to counter Chinas’ largesse.

  2. Very impressive Shiranthi. May you live long and, enjoy all your husbands ill-gotten wealth. May I remind you of a passage from the Bible: “ It is easier for a camel to go through an eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God.”

    It is not for us, mere humans, to pass judgement; but every human-being has his day of reckoning. Life is short, but, eternity is a very long time.

    • Don’t fool yourself by quoting the bible. The Americans, Canadians and Aussies are living in others’ homeland and preaching human rights. Where is your God, did he judge those criminals?
