I also have not got it . Area on two dimensional manifold is a 2-form not 1-form

Yes Nasu has got it right, the differential area of a sphere in spherical coordinates is:

##dA = R^2 sin \theta d\theta d\phi##

and integrating over ##d\phi##

and then setting R=1 you get

##Aring = 2\pi * sin \theta d\theta##
