Chief Nish joins Ara on this week’s episode of #TheTamilCreator to discuss moving from Sri Lanka to Toronto at a young age, how he bamboozled his parents to avoid being a doctor, lawyer or engineer, the value of relationships, the 2009 Tamil protest on the Gardiner Expressway, why young people shouldn’t let youth or failure detract them, and much more.

"The Tamil Creator" is a podcast started by me (Ara Ehamparam) to celebrate, spotlight and learn about the brilliance among Tamil creators globally.  I want you to feel like you're a fly on the wall eavesdropping on a conversation that is a combination of educational, inspirational and entertaining.
