Talking about The Matrix, Keanu Reeves’ character is given a choice in the film to either take the blue pill and return to his regular life or take the red pill and learn the whole truth about living in a computer simulation. “You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes”, was the dialogue in the film. The first movie of the sci-fi franchise also starred actors Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, and Joe Pantoliano.
On another note, it is that time of the year again where some people flaunt complex yoga positions while others pen resolutions to practice the same regularly without any cheat day and this time amid the COVID-19 pandemic, International Yoga Day is being earnestly looked forward to. Originated in India, Yoga has gone global courtesy its many health benefits.
On September 27, 2014, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), made a proposal for an International Yoga Day to be held on June 21. PM Modi had proposed the date June 21 as it is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and shares a special importance in many parts of the world.
