In a statement, Imman said, “Tamil has been more than a verbal composition as it encapsulates the way of living, tradition, and culture of humankind through its literature. It’s always a bliss and pride to be a Tamilian. While our Tamil land is blessed with so many eminent personalities, who have exhibited the beautiful ethnicity of this language through various forms of arts, I was taken by surprise when I was appointed as ambassador at Toronto’s Tamil chair for honorable Tamil language. It’s a proud moment… I thank every member of the University of Toronto for gifting me with a prestigious emblem that furthermore enhances my devotion towards my Tamil.”
