Poet and writer

Paruyr Sevak (Ghazaryan) was born in Chanakhchi village, located in Ararat Region, Armenia on January 24, 1924 to parents Rafael Ghazari Ghazarnyan and Anahid Gaspari Soghomonyan. Rafael was well educated, while his wife Anahid was an illiterate villager. Their family name originally contained the prefix "Ter" which may have been an indication of their religious origin.

Poems by Sevak

We are few, but they call us Armenians,
We do not consider ourselves above anybody else,
We simply recognize,
We, and only we, have Ararat.
