Candle and special Prayers in Taiping GH yesterday (27th Jan 08)

There were almost 1000 ppl visited Hindraf heroes, Mr . Uthaya and Mr Mano M whom were admitted in Taiping GH yesterday.

The turn out was high as it was Sunday and many from all over the country from came to see the glimpse of their heroes and to show their well wish to them.
I spoke to few of them whom gathered at 4C ward lobby, all of them greet to each other by saying Vanakam, Vaalge Makkal Sakthi regardless of gender and age.
This new phenomena and its a prove of unity awareness among the Msian Indian after the 25/11 Hindraf awakening.

They even brought in their family including children as far as from JB to visit their heroes.
A man by the name of Siva from JB says he is with his family as he looks this a family struggle and it is for the betterment of his kids. He wants them to know who is Uthaya and why he is in the hospital.

The unity spirit was high and I believe it was the big step winning for HINDRAF cause.
Ppl were streaming waiting for their turn to go and see him from the outside of glass door. There are almost 4 Kamunting detention staffs at each room.
The visitors are allow to see him from outside and wave hand with smile which Uthaya repeatly waving one and with the support of another hand as he is still on drips.

We came with an idea and I rush to nearest shop to some manila card and marker, later I communicate to him thru these manila card writing.
We wrote some supporting word and thank him for the entire guide he had lead. Wish him fast recovery and many more.
He was really impressed and happy that he able to get the message across.
His smiles are signs of his courage.

Later abt 7.30 pm were did the candle vigil which been held daily since last Friday nite.
Yesterday there were abt 80 children and they lead the vigil with more than 200 others for more than 1 hours at the car park beside the ward.
Both Uthaya and Mano could see the vigil from their room and slowly waving hand to support the vigil down there.

A police patrol car did came half way of the vigil and was just watching us from far. Nothing done.
The crowds disperse peacefully and with a small prayer for their heroes.
Today is the last day of the hunger strike and we hope all will be ok for all of them.
For those whom are nearby pls do come to the Hospital today evening to show our support.

Vaalge Hindraf. Vaalge Makkal Sakthi,
seals: we respect each other as humans then we join in as Malaysians then others comes in...

I thought you can only light certain type of lamp or fire for religious ceremonies in temples, not candles as mentioned by Samy Vellu. The people at Taiping might be tarnishing the holiness of the religion.

hahahaha it is not the object that matters it is the source and the result. The source is the light and the thought, the result is the blessings. One who said only can use certain type of light or else it will be tarnishing the "holiness" ....he does not know what he is talking about.
