Kismuth‘s values are



Kismuth is dedicated to the memory of A.

This post’s image is that of a sun dial, at the site of the Air India Disaster Memorial in Ahakista, West Cork, Ireland.

I made a visit to the Air India Disaster Memorial and wrote about what I felt when I saw my old friend’s name on the wall of names that is next to this sun dial.

I really took my time with this, and with writing the same scene for my book, Kanishka (Kismuth Books / 2015).

Time slows down sometimes such moments of confronting a past that could have been different, and a reality that is here and now.

Kanishka, like all of Kismuth‘s books, asks, ‘What about if?’

‘Kismuth’ means ‘destiny.’
