Death is present in many aspects of our lives. Our race and religion affect how we mourn our loved ones, and our homes and favourite malls are built over old cemeteries. Today, it has become an intangible part of our culture.
For Sivashankar, dealing with death and grief through sea burials is a daily undertaking. The Singapore Indian Casket funeral director shares what he sees in his line of work and how he guides the deceased’s families through the emotional journey that is saying their final farewells.
Stay tuned for the rest of the series as we learn about the different aspects of Culture, Cemeteries, and Urban Planning.
