KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA: In the true spirit of Divali, spreading light and love to all, devotees of Melmaruvathur Athiparasakthi collaborated with members of the Malaysian Hindu Sangam, the Divine Life Society and others to bring hope to Hindu inmates at Sungai Bulon Prison in Kuala Lumpur. The inmates were lavished with murukkus (fried snack), laddu (a sweet), packet drinks and rice pudding plus a traditional oil bath. Group coordinator L. Yogeswaran said, "The prisoners are also part of our society. We should make an effort to reform them and not neglect them."
