Mansif Helali, a teenager from Bangladesh, has bagged the third position in the youth category of a global vlogging contest run by India's External Affairs Ministry, for his extraordinary skills in different postures of yoga.

He received a prize including $1,000.

At an event at the High Commission of India in Dhaka on Sunday, High Commissioner Vikram K Doraiswami handed over the cheque to Mansif Helali and congratulated him in the presence of his family and officials of the high commission.

Helali has been a student of yoga for the last 11 years.

This well-spoken and thoughtful young man wants to contribute to public health and social harmony through holistic healing as a lifelong passion, said the Indian High Commission in Dhaka.

Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) launched a global video blogging competition: “My Life My Yoga” in June last year.

Despite the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the competition elicited an overwhelming response from across the globe, presumably in part because of enhanced interest in Yoga as a means of maintaining health in the fight against Covid 19.

As a result, a very large number of participants uploaded videos for this global video blogging competition entitled “My Life My Yoga” from around the world.

As statistics showed, the maximum number of entries were from Bangladesh.
