Ships in 2-4 days

Mango Mood by Sharmila Kamat chronicles the story of Goa, and India, in its recent past, as retold by a bemused, yet indulgent, Goan. Using mostly gentle, sometimes hard-hitting, insightful, satire, it leads the reader through headline-grabbing incidents in recent times through the medium of 42 short satirical pieces.

Like the King of Fruits whose soft exterior belies the hard core at the centre, the lighthearted rendition of front-page news in Mango Mood conceals pertinent comments on certain hard realities in our society. Besides, can there be a better symbol for Goa than the luscious, mouth-watering mango?
