In our talk with him in the sidelines of the event it came out that Mr. Naik has been an excellent artiste in Kathak who is presently focusing on poetry.  

ઝંખના.  આકાશ નાયક.
ભૂરા આભમાં વહેતી વાદળી
લીલુંડી વાડી ને કથ્થઈ પંથે
ચાલ ચકરાવે ગુમ્યો 
કશે ના આવ્યો પવન ફરફરતો
સ્મિત શોધે ખુલ્લાં આકાશમાં
શાંત બની.
Clouds are roaming 
In blue sky
Green grass garden and 
Dark brown road to walk 
Life is moving in a circle.
Wind has lost its directions
Here life Comes in search of smile.
Without sounds.

Given below are some pics that throw light on his accomplishment: -
