Highlighting some of the lesser known, but just as important past Armenian characters in India.
Those Armenians who have some sort of connection, or maybe simply buried in Calcutta and other locations in India, I re-create their lives and put them into short stories, at least as much as I am able to.
The Armenians of India are unique and their stories need to be told. I hope this blog goes a little way to telling those stories.

Two Statues Unveiled On One Day - Hong Kong Statue Square
great pomp and circumstance, the unveiling of two statues took place on
the 6th February 1907. Above is the King Edward VII statue donated by
Sir Paul Chater. The other statue unveiled on the same day was that of
The Prince of Wales (later King George V) donated by a friend and
colleague of Sir Paul, Mr. Bell-Irving even though he had left the
colony permanently five years earlier.
