Thaipusam is a day of reckoning for the Hindus. It is held during the full moon of the Hindu Calendar in tribute to Hindu Deity Lord Murugan honored for slaying evil demons in the name of good virtue. It is said that his mother Parvati gave him the invulnerable “VEL” – a steel spear to rid the evil beings. It is also a day when devotees fulfill their vows to their Deity Lord Murugan.
The “kavadis” – elaborate ornate frames well decorated with pictures of Lord Murugan are carried on their shoulders with much singing to the heavy drum beats and the vigorous dancing. Its a colorful carnival.
