Thaipusam 2011

It's Thaipusam again.  This time, there was some debate about a government announcement that Thaipusam participants should not create too much noise and so on.  In any case, I popped by downtown to have a look at the scene.  Just marginally less noisy than previous years.  It's a celebration and the participants, in my view, are entitled to celebrate in a way that is acceptable to the Hindu community.  Perhaps a storm in a teacup.
