Thaipusam literal meaning of the word, means the star at its highest point and the festival is celebrated because on that day Goddess Parvati gave Murugan a lance so that he can defeat the evil demon Soorapadman. This festival starts where people cleanse themselves by bathing. They spend most of their time in prayers and prefer to fast on that day. However, meat is the main attraction of this festival. It is believed that the greater the pain that is received it will be blessed by God and therefore the fans through the mouth, tongue, cheeks, chest, abdomen, and back with a sharp needle.
