“A Matter of Geography,” published by Mosaic Press elegantly explores the ever-changing human relationships within the cosmic framework,” as quoted by Toronto author Sylvia Fraser. This quote aptly describes Jasmine D’Costa’s new book, which was recently launched to a sold out crowd at the Heliconian Club, in Toronto.

Jasmine has indicated that the beginning of her novel opens in the early 1990’s in the heart of Bombay where young Peter and Anna are neighbours residing with their families.  They live in the Billimoria Building, ensconced in the Catholic ghetto. When Hindus destroy a mosque in the distant Indian state of Ayodhya, riots explode in Bombay, the worst the city has witnessed.

Jasmine’s launch proved to be very successful, as the Heliconian Club was filled to capacity and those attending came away with a better understanding of the political challenges facing India today.

Jasmine’s book represents five years of her life as that’s how long it took her to write it.
