The third volume of 'Indian Armenians' is published

On 8th August, 2012, with the blessings of His Holiness Karekin II, Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians, the third volume of the bilingual yearbook of the Armenian Church of India and Armenian College and Philanthropic Academy (Kolkata, India), 'Indian Armenians – 2011' has been published.

The founder of the yearbook, Very Rev. Father Khoren Hovhannisyan, Pastor of Armenians in India and Manager of Armenian College and Philanthropic Academy has commented in his opening message of the yearbook:

“In 2012, Armenians, all over the world, will celebrate the 500th anniversary of Armenian Typography.  The 2012 will be marked also with two more anniversaries in the life of Indian Armenians and both are connected with Madras (Chennai). The first one is the 300th anniversary of establishment of Saint Mary Armenian Church, the second one is the 240th anniversary of origination of Armenian Publication in Madras.”   

This encyclopaedic volume that was compiled with meticulous and arduous endeavour, in the legacy of the Armenian publications, bears testimony to the yearlong events in the Armenian Church and the Armenian Community in India. The yearbook also presents in a comprehensive way, the yearly activities, progress and achievements of the Armenian College and Philanthropic Academy.

This yearbook which contains articles about the rich and glorious heritage of the Indian Armenians was sponsored by the Church Committee of Holy Nazareth, Kolkata.

  1. 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.
