There is India, and then there is Goa with a side of India, a state of being that transcends the physical borders of Goa, carving out a national identity that supersedes an Indian one. The Many Lives of Vamona Navelcar is a collection of essays, fiction, poetry and a moving graphic novel that serves as an interpretation of this multicultural transnational state of being. It does so by taking us on an exploration of the Goan painter and artist Vamona Navelcar, told to us by a variety of Goan writers and artists.
