As an engaged practitioner of the language and its varied manifestations in literature – a reason that propelled her take up English as the discipline of her thought and research – Mousumi accomplished her Graduate and Postgraduate Studies from the University of Calcutta and Rabindra Bharati University respectively. The event of topping the University,among the female candidates, in the Master’s programme in English led her to pursue the Master of Philosophy programme in which she significantly earned a First Class. Her flair for research in poetry and its multiple possibilities of signification caused her to look at women’s writing and authorial anxiety in her Doctoral study that she pursued from Jadavpur University. The voices of women poets from the margins became the site of her enquiry and she went on to publish considerably on the literary oeuvres of supposedly non-canonical women writers.

Philosophical writings also enchant her and she looks forward to working on the textuality of such works by various Western thinkers across traditions of thought and practice. She takes pleasure in other humanistic discourses too and in deliberations on them.

Besides, her interest in films as literary representations has resulted in several writings on cinematic portrayals and their interpretive underpinnings.

She is a trained singer and has collections of songs published as albums. She specializes in the songs of Kazi Nazrul Islam, one of the greatest revolutionary poets of the Indian struggle for independence. She takes a keen interest in modern songs as well and has done an album on a similar collection.
