Mango Mood chronicles the story of Goa's recent past through the eyes of a bemused yet indulgent Goan. With satire as a significant rhetorical device, it examines headline-grabbing incidents of recent times through forty-two 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? About the Author Sharmila Kamat is a writer and astrophysicist.
