She exhibited her writing skills in different forms of literature through simple language and interesting subject matter in order to arouse spontaneous interest as well as to inspire the readers to read more of Hindi literature.
Simplicity of language, easy flow and contextual relevance of the subject matter in her writings were evident in stories published in popular Hindi magazines such as Saptahik Hindustan, Dharmyug, Kadambani, Navneet, Sarika, etc. Her most successful and popular story titled 'Phoolon Ko Kya Ho Gaya' has established its separate identity as being one of the first ones to be included in the manifestation programme of the internet. Propagation of Hindi and issues relating to women were the two cornerstones of all her writings.

Later in mythological novels, she highlighted the varied emotions of a woman. Shagun Pakshi, Krishna Paksha, Amrit Ghat, Mohbhang, Bun Bund Amrit, and Aathvan Janma are her powerful social novels in which the problems of women have been raised with great empathy.

One such unpublished manuscript, 'Lata aur Vriksha,' was recently published and released by Chief Minister of Delhi on October 29, 2010. Prior to that, another unpublished manuscript, 'Muskarati Ladki,' was published and realed in Lucknow by the Hon'ble Governor of UP.

In 'Agam' clashes between eastern and western cultures have been described emphasizing harmony being established between these two cultures. The novel 'Main ur Mera Samay' is a biography of her father Pt. Ravi Shankar Shukla told in first person. 'Atishikshan' is a compilation of poems infused with spontaneous feelings. 'Patte ki Nav,' 'Mithee Boli,' 'Peeli Haveli,' and 'Kut KutChuha,' Nanhe Jasoos' are her popular stories for the children.
