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