Welcome to THE CULTURE CHEST.
This is a culmination of a project we have been working on that is close to our hearts. Our love of the Tamil language and culture has inspired us to create some practical resources geared towards children and families wishing to help their children learn about our wonderful culture.
Our first book “Thai Pongal” was launched in January 2016 to coincide with Thai Pongal celebrations.
You can purchase copies of the book at this link.
About the Book:
It is a picture book in English and Tamil about the Tamil Harvest Festival that is celebrated in the month of January. We have used real photos instead of cartoons to illustrate the various aspects of celebrating the culture in order to help children understand how it is celebrated at home in a country like Canada where they are intermingled amongst various cultures.
Please support this initiative and stay updated through this page on a number of other projects we are working with.
