A Courtesan and a poetess in her own right. If Lucknow was the heart of Avadh, Umrao was the heartbeat.

When she first came to Lucknow, she was Amiran, the eight-year-old daughter of a jamadar at the ‘Bahu Begum ka Makhbara’ in Faizabad. A pious and simple man, he gave evidence in a case against Dilawar khan, a habitual offender. Dilawar was sentenced to jail for ten years. After finishing his kidnap little Amiran, cart her to Lucknow and sell her to a kotha owned by the astute khanum Sahib. As an inmate of the kotha, little Amiran benefited the most. Khanum gave her the name ‘Umrao’, In the company of Bismillah, Khurshid, Gauhar Mirza and others Umrao developed varied skills. The pen name “Ada” was ample proof of the proficiency in writing and presenting poetry that she went on to acquire.
