Henrik Dumanian: Luys students have received every promised dollar Monday, June 24, 2013

Luys students are promised vast amounts of scholarship money, usually more than $20,000 a year. Pessimists can gossip and maliciously attack the Foundation, but all Luys students know that every single one of us has received every dollar the Luys Foundation has promised to give for our education--and nothing less. The fact that such an organization exists in Armenia and Functions properly with less than a dozen full time employees is extraordinary. If I was the Prime Minister, I'd have no regrets with my choice. If I was a Luys student, I'd have no regrets over his choice either.

Isabel Salavessa: I feel very proud that our music schools recognize the tremendous value that these families represent for our culture Saturday, June 22, 2013

Life has these amazing things. The history of the Armenian people, like the Jewish people and several other people that have been persecuted and dispossessed, has forced among their greatest people, artists, writers and scientists to settle down elsewhere. We, the Portuguese people, we were fortunate that the families Dellalian and Mouradian stayed with us, that soloist violinist Nariné Dallalian describes her beautiful family in this interview, and how they preserved their own tradition in the most meaningful way, which is to make of music their way of life and to achieve all the excellence that this art can provide. This interview also reflects a testimony how music has a deeper meaning when it is done by those who struggle for freedom, in all its aspects, physical or spiritual, and can survive to the worst atrocities, affecting entire families. I was just reading an article in the New York Times that established this relationship between structured music able to convey emotions and the survival story. The strong and sublime emotions that composer Dellalian transmits in his musical pieces, or the fascinating and mesmerizing interpretations of the soloist cellist Levon Mouradian are an example of these experiences. Happy coincidence of mine reading both articles almost simultaneously, since it gave me insight to realize what was behind. As a Portuguese, I feel very proud that our orchestras and our music schools recognize the tremendous value that these families represent for our culture while we share and absorb their experiences and emotions through their way of making music. Greetings from Lisbon, Isabel Salavessa

Paula Parnagian: One more story of diasporan dislocation and loss Friday, April 26, 2013

My grandmother, Gardar Vartanoush Azarian Parnagian, was first cousins with Hagop and grew up with him and his family in Istanbul. She spoke of him often and was proud of him, but I had no idea of his rich history and incredible story.

No doubt they lost touch through the years, one more story of diasporan dislocation and loss. I am deeply moved by this reconnection.

Thank you. I am very grateful for your efforts and work.

Chouchan Basmadjian: We were more than 75 and sometimes 100 children in Alexandria Sunday School Friday, April 26, 2013

I was born in Alexandria. Attended Boghossian Azkain Varjaran. My brothers and myself attended the Sunday school. I am saddened to see the small number of children attending the Sunday School. At that time (year 1954 to 1957) we were more than 75, sometimes 100 children. I will pray for the work and patience for the team of the Khounganians and the Ganimians. Now we are in Montreal, Canada and are blessed with 2 Evangelical churches, 4 Apostolic churches, 1 Brethren and 1 Catholic Armenian Church. My sincere salutations to the Armenian people.

Arman prefers to be called BolsaHye Friday, September 21, 2012

Being actually born in Istanbul Turkey, then emigrated to Los Angeles, I can tell you that I prefer to be called a Bolsahye (istanbul Armenian) rather than being called a Turkish Armenian. I think it is just a commentary of how much we despise that word (Turkish) that we would rather be referred to as BolsaHye. Of course, in a normal conversation with a non Armenian or even a second or third generation Armenian, that distinction will not mean much, and an explanation may be in order. Of course, as many of you already know, Bolis is in reference to Constantinople. So this reference goes way back to before the 1909 revolution of the Young Turks who changed the name to Istanbul. In fact, I can tell you that I am taken back a bit when Persian Armenians refer to us a DajgaHye. Dajig... the Armenian slang word for a Turk or Muslim. In any case though, no offense is ever taken, I am glad that my Armenian brethren are still around, multiplying, being successful and meaningful members of society wherever they end up.

Luisa describes the condition of the animals in the Exotarium Friday, September 21, 2012

the Exotarium is a terrible place. The cages are minuscule and very bare, many animals are clearly gone mad or soon will be. The music is just a torment. I complained with the staff and they said there's no money to make things better. Ah, but there is money to get lots and lots of exotic species, probably on the black market, right? disgusting and depressing.

Shirman Baki questions the content of the Indian Armenian yearbook Friday, September 21, 2012

Please don't ask to get this year book it is like the others which has only reports of the pastor and the pastor and nothing worthwhile for the reader.

I had received previous editions and saw it very amateur and not worth asking for one to be posted, like again I did sending him postal charges.

It has all the praises off people praising him and his new renovations and offices. He needs to write on the Armenians living in India and the school, students not himself and his bogus articles which is mostly plagiarized from other people works.

I hope the pastor gets it by now not to do this any more on himself only. Ask for a copy if you want to see what I write is true or not. Next time I would like to see reports from Armenians in India and the students and the community in the diaspora. Thanks you.

Michael Stephen is sad about the current condition of the Armenian cemetery in Delhi Thursday, August 09, 2012

Dear Sir, This is shocking. I sincerely hope something is done soon or else this will be just a mound of earth. I feel very sad because when the other churches are maintained so well in India why this treatment for this church at Delhi? The churches/cemeteries of Indian Armenians should always be preserved no matter what happens.

Serob writes about Armavia's monopoly Thursday, August 09, 2012

Armavia holds a monopoly and apparently any charter flight operating must give them 10% of the revenue, kickbacks etc in order to be operating in Armenia. Several companies have tried to bring charter flights to Armenia but due to Armavia's monopoly power such plans have failed. Senior political figures have also tried to create Armenia as a hub for international flights/routes which included Lufthansa (Germany) and other Asian airlines, again due to this tight control and unwillingness to provide X number of landing rights (from Armavia's pressure and political connections) which international carriers require such projects have not materialised. So, for the sake of Armavia's development, it is the Armenian consumer and Armenia’s development which is being sacrificed. This is an example of a monopolistic and oligarchic system which Mr Sargsyan should be getting rid off before he goes abroad and invites Diaspora Armenians to invest in Armenia.

Corrections related to a pilgrimage to Cilicia Friday, June 29, 2012

Dear All

Unfortunately, you have visited wrong places in Adana:

1. The cultural center is military school building not Apkarian, it was near Surp Steppanos. None of them exist today.

2. Çarşı Hamam was not a church. Note that entrance is from South. I took bath several times there. No sign for church.

3. The church in Hadjin belongs to Surp Hagop Monestry, the hill on the east with castle on the top was accumulating Surp Asvadzadzin Church, Kale Kilise.

Contact me when you are in Cilice, Adana, I will show you Surp Hagop, Yağ camii, and I will show you where to light a candle.

Grateful to the Arab nation Friday, June 29, 2012

Armenians, who were saved from the brutality of Turkish Ottoman militia and gendarmes, (which includes my grandfather and his brother from Diarbekir and my grandmother from Eezerum) - are very grateful to the ARABS who saved them from being murdered after their families were all tortured and massacred.

A special proclamation delivered from Sherif Hussein of Hijaz still hangs in the church in Baghdad, asking the Arab people to help each and every Armenian and provide food and shelter and land.

Therefore I repeat we are grateful.

Christian players in the Iranian national football team Thursday, May 31, 2012

From "dj foroughi"

Good article, thank you ... also a correction: many Christians have played for Iran over the past 20 years. Andranik Eskandarian was the last Armenian-Christian to play in the World Cup finals for Iran, but others have represented "Team Melli" (National team): Karo Haghverdian, Maeis Minasian, Garnik Shahbandari, Samson Petrosian, Edmond Akhtar, Edmond Bezik, George Markarian (who was the first, appearing for Iran in 1951) ...
