There is no sin so great as ignorance. Remember this.’
Kim O’Hara is an orphaned boy living in colonial India. Born of an Irish father and Indian mother, Kim lives as a street urchin and fends for himself. A chance encounter with a Tibetan monk changes Kim’s life – opening it up to grander things and visions. Mired in themes of travel and adventure, Rudyard Kipling’s Kim is at heart the story of friendship and love. Through his narrative, Kipling beautifully captures the magnificence of ancient India – the colours, the smells, the languages, and of course, the people.
