The existing literature on Armenian diaspora’s association of over three centuries with India, and more particularly Calcutta has overlooked the importance of the diaspora’s connection with Calcutta1 (present-day Kolkata) and how the diaspora’s presence in Calcutta shaped their destiny. This paper explains the significance of Armenian diaspora’s historical connection with Calcutta based on a review of existing literature supported by field work.
