The award, instituted by the Maharashtra government was presented to her by chief minister Prithviraj Chavan on Friday night. It comprises a cash prize of Rs. two lakh, a citation and a memento.

Chavan said the folk art should not be restricted to entertainment, but also for creating social awareness. “The art form should be a movement that should reach across the globe. The responsibility for this lies with the entire society,” he said.
