My Name is Amrita... is the story of an intensely sensitive and talented girl who grows up to be one of India's foremost painters. It reads like a diary, and in fact includes actual lines from Amrita Sher-Gil's childhood diaries that are displayed here as if in a child's handwriting. The seemingly random musings come together like deft strokes to sketch an intimate picture of her early years. Also featured are paintings she did when she was young and photographs taken by her father. Highlighting her fertile, intelligent mind and bold philosophical views, the book traces her life till she sets sail for France on the journey for which she was born... to be an artist.
