Mousumi Bhattacharjee is a keen observer of human behavior, specially the female characters in different social environments and tries to describe the situation in an optimistic manner.
Central characters in her stories are essentially females or at least, events are happening around a female. One can feel the unspoken yearning of the central character through the passionate expressions in these short stories.
Stories in this compilation are the stories of behavioral complexities, passion, aspirations and values. Husband -wife alienation and marital disharmony attain some meaning in some of the stories here.
The author has created literary situations embedded with values of contemporary Indian women with multifarious roles in the society, as relentlessly demanded from a woman.
Though these stories are inspired by real life events, the author assures that all the characters are completely her own literary creations and any resemblance is purely coincidental.
Born in 1963, Mousumi grew up as a loving daughter of a well-educated family, in naturally beautiful Tripura.
Mousumi graduated in pure science from the Calcutta University and joined as a science teacher in the School Education Department. By this time she got married and accompanied her husband to a remote construction project site. What she observed and felt in this remote natural environment, are later reflected well in her writings.
Passion for English Literature motivated her to continue with studies. Though mired by daily family chores, she acquired, one after another, B.Ed., M.A and M.Phil. in English Literature.
