Chittaprosad's Bhattacharya's works reflect his reformist concerns.  They are a depiction of the images that were his preoccupation --- poor peasants and laborers.  His hard-hitting caricatures and sketches of the poor dying in the Bengal famine (1943) worked like modern day reportage, and shook the middle class and the British officials out of their apathy.  His reformist concerns showed in his life too, when he refused to use his Brahminical surname 'Bhattacharyya'.
