Canadian Malayalee Excellence Award

Toronto: Art needs no native language to convey itself and no specific society to adopt it. No boundary is high enough to confine art. When art gets its way to glow and grow, everyone from everywhere experiences its supremacy.

India is a land of different cultures and art, and you can see traces of it all over the world. Indian art and culture hold a particular deep place in people’s hearts from all corners of the world. India has many fascinating communities and languages, making it culturally rich. Malayalee is one of those cultures and communities. Malayalee people, with their craft, are earning a name for themselves in their country and worldwide.

Many Indians migrated to Canada to make a living. Now, they are making successful careers in the business, industrial, and entertainment sectors.

Saji Koonayil founder of Keraleeyam Canada

A prime example of this is Saji Koonayil, well-known in Canada. He is a Malayalee born in India but now calls Canada his home. Mr Saji is an exceptional cameraman who has showcased his talent and craft by collaborating with big channels like CBC, ATN, and many others. He has also contributed to the entertainment industry by producing some excellent work. Mr Saji Koonayil founded a show named Keraleeyam Canada – Oru Canadian Malayee Nerkaycha. The aim behind starting this show was to provide entertainment for his Malayalee community living and working in Canada. It has many entertaining segments, such as Vijay Veedhi, Swapanveedu, Ruchikootile Podikootu and so on. 

The Keraleeyam Canada show

The show broadcasts on Omni Channel every Sunday for 30 minutes from 12:30-1:00 pm. The repeat telecast runs on Monday at 02:30 pm and Friday at 03:30 pm. The Omni channel evolved from its flagship station CFMT in Toronto, Canada. Now Rogers Sports and Media is a part of Roger Communications of Toronto own it.

At first, it gained fame under the name MTV. Omni is the first independent, multicultural television network in Canada. And it has been providing entertainment for Canadians for 20 years. Now Mr Saji and the team are releasing the episodes on Keraleeyam Canada YouTube and Facebook pages so audiences worldwide can watch. But, they made this decision only after the show received a great deal of applause and love from the audience of the Malayalee community of Canada.

The show is about to cross the threshold of 100 episodes. And it has been performing well among the Malayalee audience in Canada.
