Letter to Santa Claus

Armenian versian is here

They say Santa Claus has advice for the kids, and why not, for the adults too. And when the year comes to its end, you put carefully one more year into your Memory Box, Santa Claus brings with him another multicolored box, and they say if you ask for Santa your cherished desire, which seems to be so far away and unnoticeable, he is able to fulfill your dream.

You know Santa Claus? My age which is typically based on the coincidence of tender, but at the same time being shaped due to the various waves of the life, hasnt let me write you ever. It is the composition of 40 brigands and 7 dwarfs as a result 47 long and stretched years which made me what I am now. Why 7 dwarfs? Simply my infancy lasted 7 careless and irretrievable years. Why 40 brigands? Simply during these 40 springs I have been the author of numerous adventures.

The realization of the death is already immortality…(In Armenian)

Սուրեն Էդուարդի Մնացականյան (1963-1994թթ.)` վառ երեւակայությամբ մի անհատ, բանաստեղծ, ուսուցիչ, մարզիկ եւ ազատամարտիկ: Աշխատելով Աբովյանի թիվ 5 և 10 դպրոցներում, իր աշակերտների հուշերում մնաց որպես հերոսության եւ մարդկության մարմնավորում: Սուրենը մասնակցել է Կոռնիձորի, Լաչինի, Մարտակերտի, Քալբաջարի ճակատամարտերին եւ հերոսաբար զոհվել 1994թ. ապրիլի 24-ին Մարտակերտի հյուսիսային մասի ազատագրման ժամանակ: Չխնայելով իրեն, մտնելով կրակի ու մահվան երախը, 26 անգամ անցնում է նույն դժոխային ճանապարհը` փրկելու վիրավոր ընկերներին… ավաղ 27-րդը ճակատագրական դարձավ:

Սուրեն Մնացականյանը հետմահու պարգեւատրվել է ՙԱրիության՚ մեդալով` ՀՀ Անկախության 8-րդ տարեդարձին: Այս դեպքում ասում են որ մարդ ՙմեռնում է այն ժամանակ, երբ չեն հիշում նրան՚, բայց Սուրենի մասին հիմա ել խոսում են ու հիշում  իր աշակերտները եւ բոլոր նրանք, ովքեր գոնե մի անգամ հացի են նստել նրա հետ: Այ սա անմահություն է…
