Pamela D’Mello writes:

Mario’s warm-hearted, often comic drawings of local characters and culture helped to popularise his native state, Goa, both across India and overseas. He died in 2011.

The Mario Gallery and Museum has published Miranda’s 1949 diaries, which depict his student life as a 22-year-old in the city of Mumbai.

A free musical concert, and an exhibition of 74 of his original and print works are on display at an art gallery in Goa’s capital Panjim, as part of the celebrations.

  1. Wonderful drawings, with ever such a slight hint of Searle here and there.
