The Luso-Indian cartoonist Mario Miranda died at 11/12/2011

Mario Miranda (or Mario de Miranda) (1926 – 11 December 2011) was an Luso-Indian cartoonist based in Loutolim in the Indian state of Goa (ex- colonia from Portugal). He was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 2002, and Padma Shri in 1988.
Miranda had been a regular with The Times of India and other newspapers in Mumbai, including The Economic Times, though he got his popularity with his works published in The Illustrated Weekly of India.[1]
In a 1999 "slide show" on the work of Mario Miranda, the site says: "Nobody is better equipped to capture vignettes of Goan life than Mario Miranda."[2]
Goa-based editor Manohar Shetty has praised the prominent cartoonist for "his eye for detail, his skills as a draughts-man, and the total absence of malice."
