Twenty years ago, Dr K Y Narayan touched the lives of three youngsters. On Friday, after nearly two-and-a-half-years of effort, the trio, now middle-aged, released a music album titled Kailamp to show their appreciation for their mentor.

The album consists of ten love songs, penned by Dr K Y N, as he is fondly called by his students.

Releasing the album, Krishna Byre Gowda, Agricultural Minister, and a former student of Christ College, said it was remarkable that the students, who were his juniors, had kept the bond alive for over 20 years. “They have made something very meaningful through this bond. When we talk about development, usually we think of highways, roads and buildings. I believe human development is the ultimate development and it is by valuing our culture and traditions and growing emotionally, we can truly develop. I hope this effort of giving back to their teacher is a lesson for all of us to do something,” he said.

K M Chaithanya, noted film director, remembered how K Y N roused their interest in poetry by singing poems in class. “K Y N’s love poems describe different layers of love in a very simple manner. He used to chide us saying how city dwellers didn’t have depth and it was those from rural areas who were closer to the earth. K Y N, despite living in the city for so long, still fondly remembers his past and his poems reflect this,” he said.

Kailamp is named after one of Dr Narayan’s poems. The music was composed by S D Arvind and the CD was produced by S Rajashekara, a journalist, with assistance from B M Vrushabendra, an entrepreneur.
