New Delhi: A picture of Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, which shows him falling asleep while performing yoga asanas, has gone viral on social lmedia.

The minister, who was chief guest at an event in Kochi on International Yoga day, fell asleep while performing Shavasan.

Congress MP Haibi Eden, who was with Prabhu on that day, said that a lady instructor was wearing a collar mike through which she conveyed the instructions to all to sit up after Shavasan. But the minister continued to be in Shavasana.

Everyone at the place was puzzled when the ministers didn't get up on own. Later, one instructor walked up to him and woke him up.

The first International Day of Yoga was observed across the world on June 21.
