TO GO WITH STORY INDONESIA-LUNAR-NEW YEAR-FEATURE BY SUMISHA NAIDU
This picture taken on January 19, 2012 shows Indonesian students studying Mandarin at a school in Jakarta.  A troupe of lion dancers jerk and sway down a busy Jakarta street to usher in the Chinese New Year, moving to the beat of traditional instruments and handing out red envelopes inscribed with good wishes in Chinese characters. Such a scene would be unthinkable just over a decade ago, when former dictator Suharto ruled Indonesia with an iron hand and disallowed any expression of the Chinese minority's own heritage.
