Armenians are a community that landed in the city of Calcutta, much before this city had a name. They were some of the oldest builders and businessmen who came with a constructive effort.
Today they stand as a small minority of only fifty individuals. However the newer generations have found new voices and ways of living in this city without carrying the baggage of an identity. The crisis of lost identity among the youth is echoed by all the seniors of the community.
