A journalist-turned researcher, Suryanarayana served as foreign correspondent of the Indian daily The Hindu in Pakistan, Sri Lanka and the Asia-Pacific region while based in Singapore. He interviewed prime ministers and several key political personalities across South, Southeast and Northeast Asia. Besides scoring a number of diplomatic news-break stories and covering the US-led ‘Desert Storm’ against Iraq and civil wars in Sri Lanka and Afghanistan, he also interviewed many militant leaders while reporting from areas of conflict. He was a delegate at China’s high-profile Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing in May 2017, besides being a delegate for several years at the ‘Shangri-La Dialogue’ in Singapore.
Suryanarayana obtained his Master’s degree from University of Madras (India) and participated in a four-week-long media seminar at Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy (USA) in 1992.
