Batu caves is a common hotspot for Thaipusam every year. It is considered a national heritage site with amazing histories engraved into it. Here is a multiracial history that happened last year at Batu Caves, that brought life to a “Thaipusam baby”.
It was a year back when, Lidawati, 39, the mother of the now famous “Thaipusam baby” was stranded in front of Sri Subramaniam Temple in Batu Caves, semi-conscious and exhausted in mid-delivery, with the baby halfway out. A group of strangers assisted Lindawati and successfully brought to life the baby.
“The aunty and her daughter (Marie and Naroshinii) , who were the first to come to our aid, were very comforting. They made sure I felt calm and comfortable as I started to give birth to our daughter.”
This Thaipusam moment will always remain unfaded in many hearts to date.

It’s been a year and Marie Puspan could not retain her joy when meeting the baby girl she helped deliver in a pickup truck on Thaipusam day.
“I’m very excited as we had planned to meet but many things got in the way,” Marie said, as tears of joy filled her eyes. My daughter also sent gifts for the baby from Singapore”, added Marie to FMT.
Lidawati and her husband expressed their gratitude at finally being able to meet Marie a year after their baby girl, Fathimah, was born. Lidawati expressed appreciation to everyone who aided her in giving birth to her only daughter, whom she described as an active and fast learner.
It is truly amazing witnessing Malaysians regardless of culture and ethnicity, supporting each other when in need.
