Hello! My name is Amit Misra.
I define myself as an artist by birth, a physicist by education, and a lifelong student of languages and cultures. As you might have already guessed, I am a native Hindi speaker, and English was a part of my school education. I learned German and French under the Foreign Language Programme of the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (India). In addition, I learned Bengali and Russian through my own efforts with help and support from native speakers of these languages. More than anything else, I am passionate about arts, especially, portraits and realism (please have a look at my art works). And I love playing harmonica
