Rishi Baba
By Karmen Ghia

A Garak/Bashir tale told in hypertext

'Remember, as much in exaltation as in suffering, that every interaction in this myriad existence is with god. Even in dreams and fantasy, creates a new reality with god. Therefore, we are responsible for all karma we incur everywhere and in everything. So do not ask, where have I sinned, where have I been virtuous; we cannot know or understand the unknowable mind of god, leave that to god and surrender to god.'
Rishi Baba, page 51.

Many thanks to Jane Skazi, Anita Kite and JA Chapman for the beta reads.

And a very respectful salaam to raku and hir Learning Curve for the hypertext narrative inspiration. I am merely following raku's exquisite footsteps in my own horrible sneakers.

Note on this story's format: In an effort to mirror the idea that reality is continuously branching off into infinite possibilities and progressing from there, this story branches off into different narratives at the end of each section. There are several narrative variations. It is up to the reader how many variations to explore. KG
