The Partisan of the Sixties Is Sixty
Gherman Petrovich feels somewhat confused that his jubilee suddenly came. It`s not that his years are many: he looks at the age philosophically. The point is that his friends will be bothered to congratulate him. But bothering anybody is against his nature. In contrast, he`s always engaged into other people`s problems, takes compassion upon the others. And this is the reason for general reverence to him. Everybody in the Academic Township and beyond it know that they will find hospitality, consolation and help at the home of Svetlana Pavlovna Rozhnova and Gherman Petrovich Beznosov.
