Bhubaneswar: Sanjay Kumar Nayak is a born talent. His passion for playing flute has helped him master the art, though Nayak's work schedule and financial hurdles have been some impediments.

Employed as a city bus driver with Capital Region Urban Transport (CRUT) in Bhubaneswar, Nayak's love affair with the instrument was brought to limelight by OMMCOM NEWS on Tuesday.

Hours after his story was published on this site, CRUT authorities took note of his talent and said that this artist will get all sort of help to nurture his passion.

Dipti Mohapatra, CRUT General Manager said that they had heard about Nayak earlier and steps will be taken to promote him.

"This is an in-born talent. He could not have devoted much time for playing flute yet Nayak plays very well. We have decided to felicitate him," said Mohapatra.

She added that after having a discussion with Nayak, the authorities will decide on promoting his talent at a bigger forum, the State and National levels.
