My expectation was not about reading a story completely about Armenianness, but I had the expectation to capture the experience of existing and writing as an Armenian woman through her language since I believe that we need to hear the experiences of the present as much as we need the experiences of the past, and it is important to be able to tell our own stories ourselves.

Today, we understand kavar in the most general terms as the rural life of Armenians, and of course we look at the reflections of nature in rural life, with which our ties have weakened today, and the relatively peaceful lives of the kavar people a century ago from a nostalgic perspective. However, Dapan Markar and other stories show that the only aim of the writers of kavar was not to idealize it.
