Her novels examine cultural conflict and the position of the existential outsider.[2] In 1991, Sudha Bhuchar and Kristine Landon-Smith adapted Chand's novel House of the Sun (1989) into a play, staged by London theatre company Tamasha and co-produced by Theatre Royal Stratford East.[3] From 2000–2002, Chand served as the chairperson for the Commonwealth Writers' Prize for the South Pacific and South East Asia.[2]
