Some of you may remember this girl, who became an internet sensation in 2016. Her video had close to a 1000 shares and more that 23,000 views. In her video, she was singing alongside her family members to support her father who was a kavadi bearer.
Allow me to bring to your attention what happened at this year’s Thaipusam, 31 January 2018. Like every other year, Vaishnavi (the girl in the video) was singing hymns and supporting her father along Serangoon Road and Selegie Road when, a HEB member, and a police officer stopped our kavadi and accused us of singing too loudly. Not only did they disrupt our procession, they surrounded our kavadi and started taking a video of each and every family member and supporter of our kavadi.
This two officers followed us for a good 30 minutes while we were singing and trying our very best to ignore the fact that we were being filmed for no apparent reason. This caused Vaishnavi and every one with the kavadi much distress and completely ruined everyone’s mood.
Needless to say, were appalled by the authority’s behaviour as we were only singing hymns and in no way a nuisance. We are also well aware there were a few HDB blocks around and were keeping our volume down.
