●My name is Rajeswary Arasaratnam and I am the president and founder of Senthamarai Publications Ltd Tamil Entertainment Television (TET HD TV), and Senthamarai Creative Writers Association of Canada (SCWAC), ●Thamilar Senthamarai publishes in both languages of Tamil and English and targets Tamils ages 25- 80 residing in the GTA through traditional newsprint and online platforms. We at Thamilar Senthamarai are devoted to bringing relevant weekly Canadian News, Health, Life, Sports and Entertainment through our experienced staff of journalist's and writers every Fridays throughout the year. ● Thamilar Senthamarai has been Circulating a leading 12,300 copies in the community to the GTA (Scarborough, Markham, Mississauga, Brampton).Thamilar Senthamarai Publication has been in the Tamil community for the past 29 years and is known to be the most effective and reliable print medium source for the Tamils. ● As I learned to balance my new life, I founded my Television company Tamil Entertainment Television Inc. (TET HD TV). 2010 This is the first Tamil North American High-Definition channel that is broadcasted on Bell and Rogers. I am also the devoted producer of most of our shows and ensure the best quality content is created for our audience. ● As the television company began doing well, I felt compelled to work on my lifelong passion of giving back to my community. That is how I noticed the need to revive my non-profit organization Senthamarai Creative Writers Association of Canada (SCWAC) 2007 to expand beyond helping writers to helping the community at large. ● My non-profit is focused on building community, resilience, and growing talents. I spearheaded efforts to deliver food to seniors during the pandemic, run workshops for people to reduce their social isolation, and showcase their talents and life stories. ● The SCWAC also produces content via workshops and shows that cater to youth, seniors, women and others to address issues related to mental health, public health, careers, public debates and showcasing art, cultural, and spiritual talents in Canada. ●For example, I have developed shows on mental health where doctors, psychologists, and social workers share information and resources during the pandemic, shows for seniors such as talent shows and documentaries of their lives, shows streaming health-related yoga classes, singing and dancing competitions, educational shows that teach Tamil to children, meaningful shows for holidays such as International Women’s Day, Father’s Day, Mother’s, Canada Day and more. ● This summer in 2022, with the help of a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, I hosted a large free outdoor event for the general public in Scarborough as a part of our Youth Singing competition finale.
