  • Narayana Kasturi (25 December 1897 – 14 August 1987) (Kannada: ನಾರಾಯಣ ಕಸ್ತೂರಿ; Tamil: நாராயண கஸ்தூரி; Malayalam: നാരായണ കസ്തൂരി; Telugu: నారాయణ కస్తూరి) was born Kasturi Ranganatha Sharma in North Travancore, which now forms part of the modern day Indian state of Kerala. He is remembered by many as a great visionary who promoted human fraternity and multilingualism. He received his bachelor's degree in Law, and his master's degree in Arts from the University College, Trivandrum, India. "After his degree at the age of 21, he stumbled up on an advertisement for the post of a lecturer in a High School in the city of Mysore." He acquired the position. After a few years, Kasturi began to "seriously contemplate on a career in Law." Around 1928 he served as a lecturer in Maharaja's College of Arts (affiliated to the Mysore University). He served as the Secretary of the Sri Ramakrishna Mission in Mysore for over seventeen years. During these years he came into contact with Sri Siddharudha Swami, Ramana Maharshi, Meher Baba, and Narayana Guru; and was initiated into Japam by Mahapurushji, the direct disciple of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. He met Sathya Sai Baba in the year 1948 in Bangalore. In his first meeting with Sathya Sai Baba, Sai Baba related, ""After retiring from the University, stay with Me. You can write My biography." "Me?" Kasturi replied. "Yes, I shall tell you whom to consult for details – parents, brothers, kinsmen, neighbours, teachers, etc. I shall also help." It was July 1948." He began to write the life of Sathya Sai Baba and published it as Sathyam Sivam Sundaram Part I. He later became the editor of the magazine of the Sathya Sai Organization, called Sanathana Sarathi. In 1949, "a University Order sent Mr. Kasturi to the Intermediate College, Davangere as its Principal."Kasturi stayed on for five years and then retired. "When he retired in 1954 with a full year's pension, Swami (Sai Baba) suggested that he go on a spiritual pilgrimage to North India taking his mother and wife along." In 1956, Sathya Sai Baba suggested, and in spite of Kasturi's reluctance, "convinced him to accept the offer of the post of Producer of Programmes for the newly established All India Radio Station, Bangalore." Kasturi enjoyed the post immensely, and "during a visit to Bangalore in 1958, (Sathya Sai Baba) spotted him (Kasturi) at the residence of Mr. Vittal Rao and said, "Now, you have to work at Puttaparthi. A monthly magazine will start soon. Guess! How is it named?" "In the initial days of Sanathana Sarathi, with no professional or skilled help of any kind, be it in writing and editing to printing, pasting and parceling, it was a tremendous responsibility for Professor Kasturi to ensure that the issue, flawless in every aspect, reached the readers on time." Mrs. Geeta Mohan Ram, who watched and played with Professor Kasturi as a tiny girl in those days, recalls, "The whole process of type-setting would be repeated so many times. After the sheets were printed, the ink would still be wet. They would then have to be spread all over the floor to dry, so the ink would not smear. Later, the pages were carefully collated, stapled together, packed and addressed in preparation for mailing – all done by hand. Although there were a few volunteers to help him, I remember Professor Kasturi doing all these jobs, month in and month out, for so many years. This was truly his labor of love for Swami (Sathya Sai Baba)."
