Respected Gulab Bai ji- a diamond of Nautanki

There was a song in the film mujhe jeene do picturised on Smt Waheeda Rehman ji.

nadi nare na jao sham paiyan parun.

it was an immortal song.  Everyone must have heard it many times, but only few knew that it was a famous song sung by Smt Gulab Bai. She was a famous actor in Nautanki. Nautanki had always been a male dominated filed of art. So did many other fields, even films were too!! remember males used to act female roles.   Similarly in Nautanki also males dominated the scene. I had heard from my grandmother that there was a BAN on Trimohan nautanki. Trimohan was that time a famous nagada (drum) player. There was strict regulation about the timings as to when he can play his drum and when he is not allowed.
