The journey of legendary artist (d. 1996), who was perhaps the first female actress to join the male dominated Nautanki show. A self-trained artist, from a humble farmer’s family of Balpora, an adept actress, gifted with a sweet voice, with myriad modulations, fluxions. Gulab will be remembered for her untiring efforts for rejuvenating the eclectic tradition of folk theatre, which had been on the wanes with fresh ideas, themes and innovative stylistic improvisations and linguistic nuances. She was honoured with Padma Shree, Sangeet Natak Academy award among other awards.
