Man invents muruku machine ahead of Deepavali

Compiled by C. Aruno, Derek Yong and R. Aravinthan

A MAN in Ipoh invented a muruku making machine that could churn out 60 pieces of the snack in two minutes.

Malaysia Nanban reported that R. Lingam spent several months and about RM8,000 to perfect the gadget.

Lingam, who grew up with 11 siblings, said his family would usually gather at their mother’s house to make the snacks during the Deepavali season.

But making muruku – usually by extruding batter into hot oil – was hard work and they had to make large batches as it was always the season’s favourite snack.

Lingam said he was also happy to let relatives or neighbours make use of the machine to help ease their preparations for Deepavali.

> Malaysia Hindu Sangam demanded action be taken against a nightclub that apparently played a remixed version of a Hindu devotional song for Lord Muruga for its patrons, Makkal Osai reported.

A video on social media showed youngsters at the club dancing and singing along to the song.

According to the organisation, it was unacceptable to use the devotional song in this manner.

The club owners had reportedly apologised, saying it was a mistake.
