Seeking bliss in the realm of poetry

Sense and Sensibility

Initially a cricket enthusiast, and a rather talented amateur cricketer, Satya Narayan R. was destined to find an extension of himself, what he identified as ‘Muasir’.

The realisation of practicality over childhood talent made him choose the field of business as his new playing pitch and a new path to walk into one of the most prestigious management schools IIM, Bangalore.

“My family atmosphere has always been academic-centric. They always supported me in my endeavour but I was asked to take up an academic-related career for myself,” he says.

Satya Narayan’s deep interest in Urdu language encouraged him to creatively express his thoughts through fine poetry which began with just a random shot he gave to write a song for a small-time band.

Narayan considers Gyaanpeeth Award-winner and Urdu poet (late) Shahryaar Sahib, who has written many evergreen songs like Dil cheez kya hai, for the Rekha-starrer Umrao Jaan, as his guru, whom he met at Aligarh.

The veteran poet expressed confidence in the budding poet’s writiing abilities spurring him to actively pursue his newly discovered talent.

“I remember, I was nervous before meeting him, but later he praised me for using even Hindi words in the poetry.

The interaction and conversation gave me a lot of reassurance to move forward,” Narayan remembers.

He believes that a language does not bind a creative poet; he just needs to put forward his thoughts and touch his audience with that thought.  

The talented writer finds creativity everywhere. His poetry originates from random conversations to just a headline he might have read in the day’s newspaper.

“When I met somebody or got down from the car and something crossed my mind, I would note it down. I might come out of a meeting and feel some emotion and I will sit down to write. There is never a ‘sit down session’ for my poetry, it just comes and flows,” says Satya Narayan

The poet is an entrepreneur by profession who started an ethical education corporate called Career Launcher with a princely amount of Rs. 500. The same has now  been renamed as CL Educate. The enthusiasm for his work never clashed with his poetry-loving alter ego ‘ Muasir’.

He says “there is as much romance, as much beauty in entrepreneurship as in poetry. When it comes to entrepreneurship, the ideas comes out naturally and I submit to them just as I submit to ‘Muasir’.”
 As a spiritually enlightened individual, he sees the world in detached way. “Even if I am going through a situation, the poet is able to see it in a detached position and when I listen to the poet I also let the dispassionate thinking affect me positively.”  

“Poetry gives me joy, gives me freedom, it liberates me and it makes me see the world in a different way.”

To enjoy the “bliss of writing poetry and the peace it offers is the ultimate aim” of Satya Narayan who believes in “not connecting the joy of writing with worldly terms like success”.
