Melbourne: Mira D’Silva, a strong supporter of Melbourne Konkan Community’s (MKC) events over the years is the liberal federal candidate for the seat of Maribyrnong in Victoria. She has sponsored functions since MKCs inception and has played a part in completing the association’s decennial.
Mira’s parents hail from Kulshekar in Mangaluru. Mira was born and brought up in Bengaluru and migrated to Australia in 2004 in search of greener pastures. A successful entrepreneur, she is the co-founder of Delivery Centric, a specialist technology service provider having offices throughout the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. Striving to give back to the society, she is the first Mangalorean Catholic to dive into politics.
As the resources for campaigning from the party is limited, Mira requests monetary assistance towards this objective. She is raising funds to support her political campaign. Any amount, even small, would make a big difference. Click on this link to donate: https://www.miradsilva.com.au/donate

We asked the public about being lonely during lockdowns. For many, Zoom calls weren’t enough – and some still haven’t recovered
The nation will go to the polls on May 21. Apart from Mira, there are six other candidates in the constituency of Maribyrnong competing for the federal seat. Spreading the word to vote for Mira D’Silva, history can be created by sending the first Mangalorean to the federal parliament.
