  2. I remember that Singapore has very orderly roads for such public processions without causing any traffic jams besides the public safety is taken care of. The barricades are useful.

  3. I actually to watch the Kavadi bearers which come in many creative and innovative designs here but the huge crowd and traffic jams made me think twice. Anyways, I had seen them many times during my growing up years. The festive celebration is always so lively with abundance of colours and merry music!
