Bangladeshi Youth Shines: Wins Global video blogging Competition conducted by ICCR

A Bangladeshi youth won the global video blogging competition conducted by Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR).

The ICCR launched a Global video blogging competition with the theme “My Life My Yoga” in June 2020.

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, said the High Commission of India, Dhaka on Sunday (June 13).

And so it is doubly a pleasure to report that Mansif Helali, a teenager from Bangladesh, bagged the third position in the Youth Category for his extraordinary skills in different postures of Yoga. He received a prize including US $1000.

High Commissioner Vikram K Doraiswami handed over the cheque to Mansif Helali at an event at the High Commission of India in Dhaka. He congratulated Helali for his achievement and wish his success in the day to come.

Helali has been a student of Yoga for 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.

Family members of Helali and Senior officials of the High Commission were present during the handing over ceremony.
