Priyanka Chopra Jonas very aptly sums up her life thus: "I am a product of traditional India and its ancient wisdom, and modern India and its urban bustle. My upbringing was always an amalgamation of the two Indias, and, just as much, of East and West."

Her memoir "Unfinished" (Penguin), that will release on February 9, takes readers from her childhood in India, where she was raised by her grandparents and her parents -- two army doctors committed not only to their children but to their careers and to philanthropy - before being sent away to a boarding school at an early age; through her formative teenage years in the US living with her extended family in the Midwest (Cedar Rapids and Indianapolis), Queens, and suburban Boston, where she endured bouts of racism; to her return to India, where she unexpectedly won the national and global beauty pageants (Miss India and Miss World) that launched her acting career.
