Our dear friend Dr. Shernaz Cama was recently in Singapore to speak to the Parsi Association there at the new Zoroastrian Museum that was inaugurated last year.
The Parsi Zoroastrian Association of Southeast Asia invited Dr Shernaz Cama to their annual Jashan for a talk on Parzors work over the years. Mr Homiyar Vasania had donated a permanent home to the Singapore community at Zoroastrian House , where during Covid Dr Cama & Neeraj and Pallavi Sahai created a permanent Exhibition based on Parzors research called Joyous Flame. Dr Cama, it’s curator could now visit it for the first time since its inauguration on Navroze.
She was also invited to speak to the Indian Heritage Centre on Saturday 15 th April followed by her talk and presentation on Care for Creation after the Jashan on 16th April. She also visited the Asian Heritage Museum where displays of Parsi and Persian traders are showcased along with textiles and miniatures donated by members of the Singapore Zoroastrian community. Several unusual exhibits include a bobble doll depicting a Parsi trader from China . Interest in this tiny community has grown and Singapore is a rare example of an increasing Zoroastrian population.
