Lion of Gurgaon
Mr Dharam Veer Khattar roars like a lion as part of his Yoga routine.
Snug in the National Capital Region of New Delhi is a park in DLF Phase 1. Meet the lion that roars in this park. His name is Dharam Veer Khattar. He has learned yoga from the famous Yogi, Swami Dhirender Brahmachari who was the spiritual guide of Indian Prime Minister late Mrs. Indira Gandhi.
He points out to me the emptiness of the park despite it being a Saturday and a holiday for most people.
“Nothing can beat the good ambience of open air in this park. It adds years to your life. I come here and do my yoga routine every day of the year.” This region indeed goes down to almost freezing temperatures but regular walkers in the park vouch for his regularity despite rain or sunshine.
The exercises are a part of a Yoga Kriya called Surya Namaskar. They tone up every muscle of the body. There are many houses around this park and late sleepers on hearing his loud roaring smile in their sleep and know all is well with the world with their unique neighbor sending out a clarion call for regular exercising.
