Jakarta, Jan 26 (IANS) A handbook on yoga was released here Saturday to mark India's Republic Day.

The publication "Yoga for beginners and Intermediate level", brought out by Embassy of India and Jawaharlal Nehru Cultural Centre, Jakarta, was released by Ambassador Gurjit Singh.

The handbook sets out to inform in a lucid way the various postures of yoga and gives clear and precise introduction to asanas, pranayam and meditation techniques, a media release from the embassy said.

The 64th Republic Day was marked not just at the Indian embassy in Jakarta but consulates in Bali and Medan. Gurjit Singh hoisted the national flag at the embassy premises and similar ceremonies took place at the consulates.

Nearly 400 members of the Indian community, PIOs and friends of India participated in the ceremony. About 150 school children from three Indian schools - Gandhi Memorial International School, the Rama International School and Texmaco DPS School - sang the national anthem and patriotic songs.
