International Yoga Day at Siachen glacier, world's highest battlefield.   Thousands, including the Prime Minister and other ministers, took part in the International Yoga Day event organised at Rajpath, New Delhi, on Sunday.  Among the participants was also BJP leader Kiran Bedi.    A selfie from Rajpath. Have a great Yoga day. If not here do it in your own home. Get energised. pic.twitter.com/y0qpZlCDfJ — Kiran Bedi (@thekiranbedi) June 21, 2015   Bedi put out a series of tweets about the event on Sunday, and made a rather odd analogy in one of them.   Miracle of collective chant of Shanti,Shanti,Shanti, by millions brings pre-monsoon showers in Delhi.Reduces heat and cools even the trees — Kiran Bedi (@thekiranbedi) June 21, 2015   It didn't take long for the Twitterati to react- some supported her, but most seemed to have been amused by her statement.     @thekiranbedi is this opinion belief or fact — Zerin Rahiman (@ajaxheart) June 21, 2015 @thekiranbedi the met department had already forecasted this light shower. please do not make such unscientific statements — sunisha (@sunishaahuja) June 21, 2015 @thekiranbedi Frm now on Indian farmers only need to do #Yoga and chant 'Shanti' many times for instant rain! No need for monsoon! #YogaDay — John M (@basstranquility) June 21, 2015   Bedi later put out tweets saying people had taken her tweet too "literally".    My tweet on rains following chanting from Yog/Rajpath which was a welcome relief gave some an opportunity to interpret it literally! Funny? — Kiran Bedi (@thekiranbedi) June 21, 2015 I meant it was such a miraculous coincidence. Since it was soon after the yoga.And it was the much awaited pre monsoon shower. @IndiaToday: — Kiran Bedi (@thekiranbedi) June 21, 2015     Also: In pictures: How politicians did their bit for International Yoga Day
