The woman who changed the world

Audrey Hepburnbritan actress, fashion model, dancer and humanitarian. On her mother’s side, Audrey was Dutch. The Van Heemstra family built its family by the beginning of the 16th century and included a long series of aristocrats — landowners, high-ranking army officers, government officials and courtiers. Audrey’s mother, Baroness Ella van Heemstra, was born in 1900 in the Velpe family estate, near Arnhem. In the family, besides her, there were five more children — four daughters and a son, each of whom inherited the title of baroness or baron. Ella’s father is Arnold van Heemstra, a senior official in the Ministry of Justice, a judge in the Arnhem court, and the mayor of Arnhem. In Baroness Elle, a mixture of many bloods flowed — Dutch, French, Hungarian. Audrey Hepburn died in the evening of January 20, 1993, at the age of 64, surrounded by her family. After her death, Gregory Peck, in front of the camera and with tears in his eyes, uttered his favorite poem by Rabindranath Tagore “Endless Love” [26] [27]. The funeral was held on January 24 in Toloshenaz at the local cemetery.

MUSEUM COMPLEX OF THE MATENADARAN

The Matenadaran’s museum complex is located in the institute’s old, original building. What was formerly a single exhibition hall now consists of fifteen halls in which thousands of temporary, changeable and exclusive exhibits are on display. Manuscript, fragments of manuscript, documents, old printed books, precious bindings, individual miniatures, and more are shown from the Matenadaran’s database of roughly 23,000 manuscripts.
The exhibition hall has been opened only in one hall in 1957 after the completion of the main Matenadaran building. The exhibition halls increased in number after the construction of the new Matenadaran facilities in 2011 (where the scientific departments moved), and the main building largely allocated to the exhibition halls, as well as offices, restoration laboratories, and strategically maintained repositories.
The exhibition of the Central hall is dedicated to the development of Armenian medieval sciences, literature, and arts throughout the centuries. It tracks Armenian culture since the creation of the Armenian alphabet by Mesrop Mashtots in 405 AD until the 18th century. It presents old Armenian translations and works of all spheres of medieval science and art (history, philosophy, exact sciences, cosmology, medicine, literature, etc.), donations, as well as medieval Armenian miniature painting and specimens of medieval bindings. The exhibition of this hall has been completed by the samples of the survived manuscripts from the Genocide.The Artsakh exhibition hall holds miniature works of the Artsakh School, with its artistic specificity and distinguishable features. Later, miniature painting from the Schools of Bardzr Haik (Upper Armenia), Cilician Armenia, the Crimea, Constantinople, and others will also be displayed.
  In the manuscript collection hall of Mush and Karin are shown also survived manuscripts from Armenian other areas. More famous of those manuscripts are Msho Charentir (Homilies of Mush) (shown the first half of Homilies of Mush), Zeytun Gospel, miniature manuscripts of Cilician School (School of Toros Roslin). The exhibition also includes digital copies of numerous manuscripts shown by the electronic monitors on the wall.
In the hall of Vaspourakan’s manuscript collection visitors are introduced to the survived manuscripts which are basically belong to the Schools of Van and Vaspourakan. There are shown the Dashunahar Gospel, Hrashagorts Gospel, “The Book of Lamentations” of St. Gregory of Narek, the donated manuscripts to the Matenadaran by the president of the Republic of Armenia. There are shown near the hall through the photos the activities of Catholicos of All Armenians Gevorg V and the committees sent to Western Armenia.  In the Medieval Medicine exhibition hall visitors can admire with the manuscripts medical books which have not only historical and theoretical, but also modern and practical significance. In the Medieval Armenian Medicine laboratory of the Matenadaran, specialists use “cochineal” worms and aromatic plants and roots, that grow only in the Armenian Highland, to prepare wholesome “Royal Balm,” floral teas, and rejuvenating, anti-aging skin oils used by “noble women” in the Middle Ages. These items are unique souvenirs that are sold only in the Matenadaran; they are prepared according to medieval recipes. There are also displayed ingredients used to make natural dyes and the Holy Myrrh.
  The Map’s hall displays maps reprinted from Medieval Armenian, Latin, Greek, Arabic and other manuscripts that depict about the ancient world and medieval geographical knowledge. The first map printed in Armenian is also shown (Amsterdam, 1695).
  The exhibition of Archival valuable documents kept in the Matenadaran is devoted to the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide in which are included samples exhibited the first time. The visitors have an opportunity to see the derelict property confiscation orders of Armenians, the photos of activities of Echmiadzin orphanage and Hovhannes Tumanyan, the registers of Armenian Prelacy of Adana, and the photos of Aintab battle, etc.
The Matenadaran’s archival documents collection was based on the Echmiadzin Catholicosate, and was later enriched by numerous donations. The number of documents now exceeds 500,000.
In the two halls of Old printed books are displayed Armenian and foreign valuable and rare books published in different countries and cities (Venice, Amsterdam, Constantinople, New Julfa, Paris, Marseille, Lvov, Madras, Rome, Moscow, Astrakhan, St. Petersburg, and elsewhere) during the 16th -18th centuries. The first Armenian books were printed in Venice in 1512-1513, by Hakop Meghapart. In the frameworks of exhibitions of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide in the Virtual hall of the Matenadaran one can watch a documentary film about “Kemalist massacres” based on the Matenadaran’s archival documents.
In the four exhibition halls allocated for M. Saryan’s work’s visitors may see the master’s most famous works of art from his early works to his last oil painting “Fairy Tale”. The showrooms also display works from the Egyptian region, “Walking Woman,” “Night Landscape,” Saryan’s book illustrations (V. Bryusov’s “Anthology of Armenian Poetry,” 1916, etc.), and some items of Saryan’s personal belongings, as an Egyptian mask and so on.

My point of view on the theme polluted ocean

It’s painful to watch how our oceans are polluted. It’s terrible that our population makes this to the World Ocean. How much we can destroy nature that gives us birth, that every day takes care of us, people should understand that if we wouldn’t stop and give nature time to recover we will finish ourselves very quickly. Number one enemy to people is people. We day by day do worse to us, we every day make more trash that should, many people throw out products that can be used by others. I want to believe that we can fix this huge problem. If not we will be the end of ourselves. In my opinion, we should refuse many quantities of products from plastic. We have to use more eco- products, less plastic. We should build recycling stanzas to convert waste into useful things. For example, we can recycle plastic bottles and make out of them the cloth and sew clothes, bags, shoes. People wake up!!!

Women that changed the world

It has been 22 years since Diana, Princess of Wales, died in a horrific car crash in the wee hours of August 31 in Paris. Her death shocked the entire world as she was the “People’s Princess”, much adored and revered by all. Her life was not without incident. From a starry-eyed girl who married at the age of 19 to a 31-year-old Prince Charles, the one would become king some day, Princess Diana battled the rigours of royal life. She was soon much more than a style icon, becoming a prominent philanthropic force, with causes as varied as leprosy awareness, landmines, and HIV/AIDS. In her lifetime, she was patron of more than 100 different causes across various fields.

She worked ardently for HIV/AIDS awareness

She worked ardently for HIV/AIDS awareness When the world woke up to the horrors of HIV/AIDS in the early 80s, patients were shunned and stigmatised because the disease had a sexual connotation. Princess Diana was not one to shy away from battling for HIV/AIDS awareness as well. As early as 1987, we got to see her compassionate side when she visited AIDS patients at a hospital in London. She was also seen shaking a patient’s hand without wearing gloves, sending a message to the world that the disease could not be transmitted by touch. This single act by a Princess largely changed people’s perceptions towards HIV/AIDS.

She helped the young and homeless

unnamed

Princess Diana became a patron of Centrepoint, which helps the young and homeless off the streets in 1992. She constantly visited shelters, taking her young sons, Prince William and Princess Harry, along. Later, Prince William, her older son became its patron in 2005. This year, Prince William also became a patron of The Passage, another charity for the homeless, whose shelter he visited with his mother as a child in 1993. He even helped in the preparation of food at the shelter by dishing up lunch for the homeless recently. Surely, his mother’s legacy is in good hands.

She advocated for awareness of leprosy

Like her visit to an active landmine in Angola, the Princess’s visit to Sitanala Leprosy Hospital in Indonesia was also mired in controversy. However, she did not let the naysayers bother her and proceeded to sit on the beds of leprosy patients in the hospital, shaking their hands and touching their wounds, putting the spotlight on much-needed leprosy awareness across the world. Princess Diana was also Patron of The Leprosy Mission England and Wales from 1990 until she died in 1997. Like with HIV/AIDS patients, she strived to remove the stigma surrounding leprosy, giving out a message that they too need to be treated with dignity and love.

She was not afraid to speak her mind or break protocol

The People’s Princess may have been the first among the Royals to speak her mind forcefully, even breaking protocol many times to make a point. Most of the time, she preferred not to wear hats or gloves, especially so she could feel one with the people she was shaking hands with. She did not shy away from showing her affection to her children in public and took them along on most royal tours, even when they were little babies. And, we all know what happened after her divorce with Prince Charles when she mentioned in the infamous interview that “there was a third person in my marriage”.

Sergei Parajanov

Parajanov was born Sarkis Hovsepi Parajaniants (Սարգիս Հովսեփի Փարաջանյանց) to artistically gifted Armenian parents, Iosif Paradjanov and Siranush Bejanova, in Tbilisi, Georgia. (The family name of Parajaniants is attested by a surviving historical document at the Sergei Parajanov Museum in Yerevan.)[4] He gained access to art from an early age. In 1945, he traveled to Moscow, enrolled in the directing department at the VGIK, one of the oldest and highly respected film schools in Europe, and studied under the tutelage of directors Igor Savchenko and Aleksandr Dovzhenko.

In 1948 he was convicted of homosexual acts (which were illegal at the time in the Soviet Union) with a MGB officer named Nikolai Mikava in Tbilisi. He was sentenced to five years in prison, but was released under an amnesty after three months.[5] In video interviews, friends and relatives contest the truthfulness of anything he was charged with. They speculate the punishment may have been a form of political retaliation for his rebellious views.

In 1950 Parajanov married his first wife, Nigyar Kerimova, in Moscow. She came from a Muslim Tatar family and converted to Eastern Orthodox Christianity to marry Parajanov. She was later murdered by her relatives because of her conversion. After her murder Parajanov left Russia for Kiev, Ukraine, where he produced a few documentaries (DumkaGolden HandsNatalia Uzhvy) and a handful of narrative films: Andriesh (based on a fairy tale by the Moldovan writer Emilian Bukov), The Top Guy (a kolkhoz musical), Ukrainian Rhapsody (a wartime melodrama), and Flower on the Stone (about a religious cult infiltrating a mining town in the Donets Basin). He became fluent in Ukrainian and married his second wife, Svitlana Ivanivna Shcherbatiuk, also known as Svetlana Sherbatiuk or Svetlana Parajanov, in 1956. Shcherbatiuk gave birth to a son, Suren, in 1958.[6]

Kahlil Gibran Poet, Author, Illustrator, Journalist (1883–1931)

080107_r16860_p517

Lebanon-born writer and artist Kahlil Gibran became known for his mystical Arabic and English works, earning fame following the 1923 publication of ‘The Prophet.’

Synopsis

Born in 1883 in Lebanon, Kahlil Gibran moved to the United States in 1895 and was exposed to Boston’s artistic community. Initially showing promise as an artist, he also began writing newspaper columns and books in Arabic, drawing attention for his prose poems. After moving to New York City, Gibran began writing books in English, including his most famous work, The Prophet (1923). The popularity of The Prophet endured well after the author’s death in 1931, making him the third-best-selling poet of all time.

Early Years

Gibran Khalil Gibran was born on January 6, 1883, to a Maronite Christian family in Bsharri, Lebanon. A quiet, sensitive young boy, he displayed an early artistic aptitude and a love for nature that became evident in later works. His early education was sporadic, although he received informal lessons from a local doctor.

Gibran’s temperamental father worked as a tax collector, but he was charged with embezzlement and his property was seized. Seeking a better life, Gibran’s mother in 1895 moved the family to Boston, Massachusetts, where they settled in the immigrant South End neighborhood.

Artistic Development

Receiving his first formal schooling, where he was registered under his now-commonly known name of Kahlil Gibran, the 13-year-old stood out with his artistic ability. He was steered to photographer and publisher Fred Holland Day, who nurtured Gibran’s talents and introduced him to a wider artistic community.

At 15, Gibran returned to his home country to attend a Maronite school in Beirut, where he displayed an interest in poetry and founded a student magazine. He returned to Boston in 1901 shortly after the death of one of his sisters from tuberculosis; the following year, his brother and mother passed away as well.

Financially supported by his surviving sister, a seamstress, Gibran continued to work on his art. In 1904 he enjoyed an exhibition of his drawings at Day’s studio, and he began writing a weekly column for the Arabic newspaper al-Mohajer. Gibran drew a following for his “prose poems,” which were more accessible than traditional Arabic works and explored themes of loneliness and a loss of connection to nature. He published a pamphlet on his love for music in 1905, and followed with two collections of short stories.

Meanwhile, Gibran grew close to Mary Haskell, a progressive school headmistress who became the writer’s benefactor and literary collaborator. She funded his enrollment at the Académie Julian in Paris, and then his move to New York City in 1911.

New York Years

Establishing himself in New York’s artistic circles, Gibran in 1912 published the novella al-Ajniha al-mutakassira (Broken Wings). He had an exhibition of his paintings in late 1914, although by then his Symbolist-influenced style was becoming outdated in the art world.

Gibran began writing for the Arabic newspaper al-Funun, and with the outbreak of World War I he expressed more nationalistic leanings. He joined the board of another newspaper, Fatat Boston, and in 1920 he founded al-Rabitah al-Qalamiyah (The Pen Bond), a society of Arab writers.

With the help of Mary Haskell, Gibran began writing books in English, producing a collection of parables with The Madman (1918) and The Forerunner (1920). In 1919, he also published the poem al-Mawakib (The Procession) and a book of art, Twenty Drawings.

‘The Prophet,’ Later Works and Death

In 1923, Gibran published what became his most famous work, The Prophet. Centered on the character of Almustafa, a holy man set to return home after 12 years in exile, the book expounds on matters of love, sorrow and religion over 26 poetic essays. The limited reviews were mixed, but The Prophet quickly sold out its first edition and continued selling steadily, giving its author his first taste of widespread fame.

Gibran became an officer of the New Orient Society in New York, which boasted such writers as Bertrand Russell and H.G Wells for its quarterly journal. In 1928, he delivered another of his celebrated books, Jesus, the Son of Man, a collection of reflections on Christ from both historic and imaginary people.

However, by this time Gibran was also battling alcoholism and becoming more of a recluse. One final completed book, The Earth Gods, hit shelves in early 1931, and he finished a manuscript of what became The Wanderer (1932) shortly before his death on April 10, 1931, from cirrhosis of the liver.
