India is celebrating the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi on Wednesday. To mark this day, several events are taking place throughout the country. Not to forget, several other countries too are paying their tributes by organising various kinds of programmes. A video –from such an event apparently organised by Embassy of India, Riyadh – is now going viral and winning people’s hearts.

The 20-second-long video, shared by Twitter user Nouf Almarwaai, shows a man “singing Gandhiji’s favourite bhajan ‘Vaishnava Jana To.’” In the caption she mentions that the man singing the song is a Saudi singer.

While many praised the singer for picking up this special song, there were others who were amazed by his accent.

Today, October 2, also marks the fifth anniversary of Swachh Bharat Mission. It was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014 on Gandhi Jayanti.
