Thaipusam celebrations in Singapore are known for their superb organisation and colourful fervor. The real activity starts the day before at the Perumal Temple in Serangoon Road. Devotees and their families begin preparing for the famous Kavadi pilgrimage on the Thaipusam day 24/1/16. The preparations in the temple involve many aspects. First the devotees have a shower and dress themselves in just plain red or ochre colour garments — Murugan’s favourite colours. They then set up the Kavadi and all its parts in a beautiful display and take a vow and blessings with a prayer.

When it comes to Thaipusam festival, people ask me two big questions. If they are interested in photography they ask, “Why are you shooting the same thing every year? Is it not the same? So boring… blah blah blah.”

It is likely you are not to forget or erase the experience so easily. I have made pictures of this feast many times in Singapore and yet every year I am lured by the drama, the colour and the indomitable spirit of the Kavadi bearers.

Get more in depth information on his experiences and what Thaipusam festival is about.
