The Angry Indian Man and Thaipusam

Nedumaran Elangovan

'Konjem Sanja, Muruganee Vithe Yeppam Vittheruvange Evenenge'- actual words of an Indian uncle standing next to me.

Okay, lets us forget about the banners, the cut out and the huge ass garland. Pihak penulis tidak mahu memberi komen tentang pekara tersebut kerana, mungkin disalah tafsir oleh sesetengah pihak sebagai coretan ejen pembangkang, yang ingin menimbulkan huru-hara.

I was in Batu Caves (BC) last night, way up to 6 am this morning. Not to pray, I have to admit, I was there to support some family members who were paying their vows.

The first thing that greeting me was the blaring sounds of air-horns. For 2 fucking kilometers, all I can hear is the irritating sound of the horn, and machas screaming. Confirms my theory that most macha’s that show up during Thaipusam, are attention whores who think irritating people is cool.

This horn made me feel like killing somebody

Then there was this punk wig, WTF? Whats this? Attam 100 Vagai Concert? Ok, now Im going off topic. My anger today is not towards these idiots, but towards someone way higher. The so called temple management committee.chong qi you yong chi

Dear Sirs,

You have been in the committee for how long? As far as I know, you people have been there, sitting on your raised platform (now aircon glass building), shouting

 ‘Puchong, Taman Anggama-vin Parratai ke gavanam, unggel patti Tangamaa jamban kitte nikkerange ungalkage”

Ok, I have to admit, managing a million people is not an easy task, but you did have a long time to practice, didn’t you?  And you have a whole year to prepare, with millions of Ringgit to spare.

And still, every year, it the same old bullshit. Mismanaged crowds, terrible facilities, garbage and incompetent management. Here is something that I have noticed, and here is some suggestions.

Stall/Booth Placement

No stall should be allowed to operate along the main entrance leading to the stair as this causes congestion, removing stalls will allow more space for visitors to walk and breathe.

Yes, there will be people saying,

‘Tamilan business kedukera pakkeriya? Nambe edam kudekelati, vereh yaar nambe makkal ke opportunity kudupa?”.

I say, go ahead give the business to the small business owners, who needs your stupid fun-fair? Scrap you funfair, and you have space for another 50 businesses. Don’t tell me the funfair towkey is Indian now.

Don’t allow non religious, or community related booths in the temple grounds. Ok, I understand MC Mama Jama Puma needs this opportunity, to promote his album ‘Kathi Mel Ratham, Kattil Mel Porattam”. But he can do the same outside the grounds, right? Another space is made available for our small business owner. Read more…
