Turk-Laz poet Serkan Engin’s poem about Armenian, Assyrian and Pontian Greek genocides named “BARBARIAN AND MS DAISY” will be available on the website of worldwide known avant-garde music genius  Diamanda Galás.

This poem had been published in Armenian Poetry Project last month:

Here is Diamanda’s full message:

Dear Serkan,

Since you are so rare, and your writing spares noone and nothing,
including yourself-- who wears the tourniquet of innocence--
I would ask you if I may put your poem on my website
as a bold and daring poem written from what city? ( or is that too dangerous)
I am glad to know you. Among the supposed "innocent"
are those who would not like the genocides of the others
to be known: I thought you should know this.
How fascinating to find covetousness in so many bushes,
while we walk a way made narrow by them.

  1. Everest Base Camp Trekking often touted as one of the most beautiful of trekking trips in the whole world and rightly it is. Located at the lap of world's highest peak, Everest Base Camp (EBC) is rewarded as the best trip Nepal has to offer. Since 1920, Mt Everest has captivated intrepid men and women. There were some exploits of legends like Sir Edmund Hillary, George Mallory and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa to put the mighty mountains on the map. Thousands of adventurers followed them making huge sacrifices. EBC Trek is designed to fulfill the dream of many people to experience the historic route to the base of world's highest peak. Since the beginning, Everest Base Camp Route has gained massive popularity and a lot of appreciation. The highlights of Everest Base Camp Trekking are the stunning views of Mount Everest, legendary Sherpa culture, wonderful Namche Bazaar, Tengboche Monastery, the best viewpoint of Kalapatthar, and beautiful Chhukung valley among many others. We gradually ascend through the wonderful Sherpa villages enjoying the magnificent Himalayan scenery, wildlife and visit a number of Buddhist Monasteries. EBC Trek culminates with a fine opportunity to trek to both EBC and nearby peak of Kalapatthar (5545m) for spectacular views of the Everest. Savoring the high mountain views with the unique and life defining journey, EBC trip can be combined with Gokyo Chola Pass Trek, or Everest Three Passes packages as well, making the journey bit more challenging and rewarding too. Encounters Nepal has carefully devised an itinerary with a number of rest days that offers an exceptional way to acclimatize safely. Having had hit the Himalayan Trails since so long, we have learned never to rush a trek to altitude in the Himalaya. Taking an extra few days makes all the difference to really being able to enjoy the trek and trekking in Nepal.
