A book on T B Cunha, the Father of Goan Nationalism, titled, ‘The Life & Times of T B Cunha’, written by Dr Nishtha Desai and illustrated by Ved Prabhudesai, was released on the occasion of Goa Revolution Day, June 18, 2015.

The event was held at the Multipurpose Hall of Sanskruti Bhawan, Patto Plaza in Panjim.
The book has tried to capture Cunha’s life,
focusing on the activities he undertook to spread nationalism in Goa. It gives
a background of his early years in Goa, his stay in Paris and the influence of
political events of that time on his thinking. It gives an idea of his years in
prison in Portugal, his escape from Portugal and the continuation of his
nationalist efforts to free Goa while living in Mumbai.
