The two days I was covering the Thaipusam Festival, I discover a very strong message.
The Love devotees have for their family and their God is so strong, they are able to withstand the extreme physical pain.
The main participants - no matter if they are young, old, burly or skinny - they were not ordinary men. And all because of LOVE.
A father offered thanksgiving year after year by carrying a kavadi for more than 20 years. He has a close-knitted, supportive family. His sons continued with the tradition. You see unconditional love when they rally around one another, walking side by side for 4 km bare-footed in the hot sun, faces beaming with joy.

This coming Valentine's Day, I think it is time to focus on a lot more love in this world. Valentine's Day need not be the exclusive realm of couples – it can be an expression of kinship, friendship and platonic love. It is a day of inclusion and an opportunity to recognise all we have in our lives. Let's spread our love. - Lilly's life -
