Open lesson/event devoted to Diaspora Armenian writers Srpouhi Dussap and Vahe Hayk

It seems to be a twist of fate. Armenians have always had a cruel fate and have been swayed to and fro like a leaf and have settled in all four corners of the globe. We Armenians are always different from other nations with our fate and even our literature. Our literature is composed of the works of Western Armenian, Eastern Armenian and Diaspora Armenian writers.

The Ministry of Diaspora had sent messages to schools to participate and hold events and open lessons to celebrate the anniversaries of three Diaspora Armenian writers, including Vahe Hayk, Avetis Aharonyan and Srpouhi Dussap.

The Ara Harutyunyan Secondary School of Aknalitch is always consistent and meets its objectives.

On May 20, the school’s Armenian language and literature teacher Yelena Baghdasaryan and her 9th grade students organized an open lesson/event devoted to Srpouhi Dussap and Vahe Hayk, as reported Yelena Baghdasaryan to Hayern Aysor.

The teacher presented a slide show that presented the ideas of Western Armenian writer, publicist, pedagogue and public figure Srpouhi Dussap about the liberation, equal rights and labor of women. She also reflected those ideas in her works that helped her have a special place in Armenian literature. Dussap lived her life fighting for women’s liberation, equal rights and labor. She increased the role of women, attached importance to women’s education and labor and considered that the basis for the liberation of woman from social prejudice and social development.

The teacher and the children had also staged Vahe Hayk’s short story “Katid Paran Chmornas Mama”. The roles were played by the children. The narrator was Alik Sedrakyan, the grocer was Spartak Avetisyan and Mama was Roza Hakobyan. The students had gotten into their roles so much and were acting so well that they touched the hearts of the people in the audience.

They also organized a “trial” where the grocer was accused of offending his mother.

The judge (Narek Galstyan) and the plaintiff (Vrezh Markosyan) moved and charmed the audience with their acting.

The play ended with a discussion during which everyone revealed the disciplinary significance of the short story, that is, to protect, preserve and appreciate parents. This event was an event that the attendees will remember for a long time.
