She began her authorial life as a critic and essayist. Her voluminous dissertation on Realism in Bangla Novels came out from Bangla Academy in 1993. In the year 1996 her "Bibi Theke Begum", a research work picturing the evolution of Bengali Muslim women, created much controversy. Deeply attracted to the unrefined state of life found in the lower depths of society, she started writing fictions in the late 1990s. She has authored so far several novels and short story books.
