Dolly Dastoor Visits Western Australia

Prof. Dastoor has been associated with FEZANA since its incorporation first as its Secretary and then as President from 1994-1998. She also chairs the Academic Scholarship Program and was the Co-Chair of the 7th World Zoroastrian Congress in Houston.  With the retirment of  Roshan Rivetna, the task of editing the Journal has fallen on her.

She is a clinical geriatric neuropsychologist, and at present she is the Clinical Administrator of the Program in Dementia with Psychiatric Co-morbidity, and an Asst Prof  in Psychiatry at McGill Univeristy.

Also on this day, a short play was performed by Zoroastrian kids. The theme was 'CREATION'. The following kids took part in the play and took up the roles as under:
  1. Zenia Irani - SKY
  2. Pearlin Bhamgara and Cyrus Amaria - PLANTS
  3. Kaitlyn Buhariwalla - ANIMAL
  4. Shayaan Irani - FIRE
The Narrative of the play was read by Karishma Bhanja, Yohann Buhariwalla and Parina Randeria.
