She had toured the Jhansi region to record information and folk songs from the local people for the novel. Inshe began teaching at Vijaygarh Jyotish Ray College an affiliated college of the University of Calcutta system.

In those days Vijaygarh Jyotish Ray Adhikkar was an institution for working-class women students. During that period she also worked — as a journalist and as a creative writer.

In her elaborate Bengali fiction, she often depicted the brutal oppression on the tribal people and untouchables by the powerful authoritarian upper-caste landlords, money-lenders, and venal government officials.

I have always believed that the real history is made by ordinary people. I constantly come across the reappearance, in various forms, of folklore, ballads, myths and legends, carried by ordinary people across generations. The reason and inspiration for my writing are those people who are exploited and used, and yet do not accept defeat. For me, the endless source of ingredients for writing is in these amazingly noble, suffering human beings. Why should I look for my raw material elsewhere, once I have started knowing them?


Sometimes it seems to me that my writing is really their doing. Mahasweta Devi raised her voice several times against the discrimination suffered by tribal people in India.
