The brainchild of our Honourable Prime Minister, the Fit India Movement is an amazing development for the benefit of our entire nation. As an Indian citizen, I am so proud to have a leader like him who is so focused on lifestyle, fitness and wellness of our nation. Too many people are suffering from lifestyle diseases today and there is a lot of money being spent on healthcare too. What if we save all of this by changing our lifestyle and the way we eat, move and live? Most diseases are caused by poor lifestyle, which means living the right lifestyle can reduce the chances of getting these diseases to a huge extent,” shares Luke.
