THAIPUSAM: THROUGH THE EYES OF A DEVOTEE

Thaipusam: Through the eyes of a devotee

This year, Team Ceritalah explored the celebration of Thaipusam through the eyes of Agilan, a Lord Murugan devotee. We followed Agilan as he carried a 'kavadi' up the steps of Batu Caves, and learnt more about how ordinary people like himself can perform rites that are nearly superhuman in nature.
