Once in Canada, Aditya saw that the knowledge about India, its people, and its culture still did not reflect the real India. So Aditya took the road which was not taken yet. He took it upon himself to spread awareness about India and also inform Indians about Canada, its people and culture. In 1997, bought a weekly English newspaper – ‘The Link’. For a number of years, he worked in making the newspaper a brand. Even today the Newspaper is one of the leading ethnic newspaper of Metro Vancouver. Currently, he serves as President of Aditya Tawatia PREC providing real estate residential services in Lower Mainland.
Following the age-old adage that ‘When in Rome do as Romans do’ he adopted the lifestyle, culture of Canada with an open heart but he never compromised on Indian values. Even in the face of adversity, he kept the values taught by his parents intact. His father’s fortitude and his mother’s unwavering support inspired him to achieve success in this new land. Aditya successfully settled into the Vancouver lifestyle, which shows that as an individual he is able to adapt to new environment easily.
Today, Aditya has become the face of Indian Diaspora in Western Canada, he is the bridge between the Federal Government of Canada and the Government of India. He has been instrumental in taking the voice of NRIs living in the west coast of Canada to The federal government of Canada in Ottawa. Aditya has invited to the swearing-in the ceremony of Prime Minister Modi, which was in recognition of the work he has been doing in spreading the information about ‘ Bhartiyata’ for last many years.
What drives Aditya to keep working in the community and for the community is his firm belief that every individual, every citizen has the right to a good and decent life and it is the responsibility of people like him to come forward and help those in need by offering their time and efforts. He has the vision to spread the values and principles of peace, harmony, self-less devotion towards the community, the ethics of ‘Bhartiyata’ or ‘Indianness’ in the Western world.
