Amrita Das, a young artist trained in the Mithila style of folk painting, steps off a train in an unfamiliar city. She is pleased with her privilege to travel, and starts to wonder about her vocation: what it is to be a woman artist? What should she draw and why? Her musings lead to a wonderfully imaginative vision of a young artist coming of age, as she uses the conventions of her traditional art to very contemporary ends. Offset Printed.
