Suchitra Bhattacharya, one of the prominent Bengali women writers of recent times, was born on January 10, 1950 in Bhagalpur, Bihar. She has created a sensation with her engrossing power of story telling and control of the language. Focusing on the familiar world of middle class Calcutta, Bhattacharya's fiction draws on contemporary social issues, conflicts in family relationships, and changing values. Her widely appreciated novels include Dahana, Parabasa, Gabhira asukha, and Kachera manusha. Her collection of short stories Bukera katha focuses solely on women's issues.

Bhattacharya has a large following and is considered a popular writer, yet she maintains high literary standards for herself. These high standards have won her many awards including Manjamagudu Tirumalamba Puraskar, Tarasankar Puraskar, Sahitya Setu Puraskar, and Katha Puraskar. She is in Government service.

The Library of Congress has nineteen titles by her including translations.
