About Steampunk India,

“Ask yourself in the most silent hour of your night: must I write?”
– Rainer Maria Rilke

This blog is an accompaniment to the website, which is mostly a placeholder. If you’d like to interact, I’m very active on Twitter.

Third person bio:

Suna Dasi is an Indian/Dutch diaspora artist based in Scotland, who studied and worked in theatre and dance in The Netherlands. Eventually her vocal chords became her main weapon of choice; her profession as a performer and voice actress has taken her all over the world.
Together with her wife, she is a long-standing member of The Lodge Arts Collective: a predominantly womxn identifying group of very long term friends living communally, committed to the creative process in all its aspects; the production of music, theatre, poetry, fine arts and performance art.
She currently sings backing vocals and plays keyboards with progrock band EBB and provides backing vocals and dance for Machine Metal outfit Krow.
Being a woman in the creative industries led her to become part of woman-led film and music company Bad Dog Productions, Indie music label Boudicca Records and co-founding PandoraFest, which in 2016 had the honour of being Scotland’s very first woman-focused music festival.
When not in the studio or on the road, Suna writes SFF and Speculative Fiction. She is currently working on her poetry collection and her first novel. In 2017 she was Nominated for a BSFA Award in the Short Fiction category for one of her short stories: Unmade in Steampunk Writers Around The World – Vol I, (published by Luna Press Publishing).
Suna has contributed fiction to The Clockwork Watch Transmedia Project, The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrence’s spin-off series Tales From the Archives (for which she also did the audio narration), the Steampunk Universe anthology (published by Alliteration Ink), plus non-fiction to Jeff VanderMeer and Desirina Boskovich Steampunk User’s Manual, Sci-FI Romance QuarterlyBrown Girl Magazine, the Sci-Fi Fantasy Network, and most recently Weirdo Zine.

The writing community has been amazingly supportive over the years and I have made some wonderful friends. I recently became a NetGalley member because I’d like to review and boost books by fellow writers.

    • Hello there!

      Thank you for the compliments, so pleased you enjoy the work. Steampunk India is always happy to collaborate with Yomi Ayeni, who is the director and manager of The Clockwork Watch: The Transmedia Experience, where the character of Tinku originates.

  3. I LOVE the idea of Steampunk India – can’t wait to see what you write next!
