Baba Ramdev Stands Up against world poverty

October 16, 2006
Yoga guru Swami Ramdev was one of the celebrity delegates for Stand Up Against Poverty, a global United Nations-supported citizen's initiative.

Though Ramdev -- the popular face of the spirituality television boom in India -- did not get to deliver his lecture on poverty alleviation, he shared the stage with UN Deputy Secretary-General Mark Malloch-Brown. He was seen chanting 'stand up' along with everyone on stage, in just his trademark saffron chador and robe in an early Autumn evening October 15 at Time Square, with the temperature in the early forties.
