The burden

Part 3 of 3, Thaipusam in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Otherwise known as the kavadi. No photoset of Thaipusam is complete without a photo of a devotee with his kavadi, his burden. His offering in exchange for the granting of his prayers to the Lord Murugan. Heavy and unwieldy as they may be, they seem as light as a feather for the devout. No pain, no blood, no distance too far to carry.
