Jakarta, Oct 3 (IANS) A choir rendered Mahatma Gandhi’s favourite ‘bhajans’ at a special programme organised by the Indian Embassy in the Indonesian capital to celebrate Gandhi Jayanti here on Monday, authorities said.

In association with the Gandhi Memorial Intercontinental School, the programme began with the Ambassador of India to Indonesia Nengcha Lhouvum and other guests paying floral tributes to Mahatma Gandhi followed by a commemorative address by the Indian envoy, a statement from the Indian Embassy said.
