Her interests ranged from the feudal world of the princely state of Jaipur, to East Bengal at the time of Partition, to an urban milieu. The stories reflect her concern with many issues painfully relevant even today: how traditional cultures try to cope with change and how individuals navigate their way between the old and the new- the causes of female infanticide- women caught in the crossfire of communalism and the co-modification of women in various ways.

Humane yet unsentimental, sometimes quite stark, the author is extraordinarily modern in tone and style.
