Narayanan has given 25 years to the A. A. Al Moosa group, where he manages and guides the entire set of maintenance work in both Al Moosa Towers 1 and 2. Earlier, in 1982 he joined the Bin Ladin Group as an Electrical Supervisor and continued to work with them till 1990. It is in 1990 that he joined the A. A. Al Moosa group and serves them till date. For many years now he has been involved in charity and humanitarian causes alongside the Indian Embassy.

Narayanan has been actively involved in the art, culture and charity initiatives in Dubai for a long time. During his tenure as the secretary of DALA, he had led a number of cultural and humanitarian initiatives. Even today, he is an active presence in radio and television debates. He also frequently writes articles in periodicals.

During his school and college days, Narayanan was involved in Left politics. He has served as the Malappuram district secretary of the Students Federation of India (SFI) and also as the secretary of Perumbadavam Veliyangodu Local Committee of the CPI (M). After completing his studies at the MES College, Ponnani, he pursued a diploma in Electrical Engineering.

When he was at the helm of DALA, Narayanan had been in the forefront in organising the annual youth festival involving the UAE Schools and also the Keralolsavam, which highlighted the rich heritage and cultural legacy of ‘God’s Own Country’.

When the UAE declared VISA amnesty, he has led the initiatives to help workers from Kerala, who have overstayed the VISA period, to leave the country or to find a new job here itself. He has also worked in association with the Indian Consulate to provide relief to the workers leading a tough life in labour camps. His activities included helping them avail pending salary, providing them food and other facilities and also prompting charity organizations to work for the welfare of these workers.

Narayanan has also taken the initiative to conduct medical camps in labour camps, in coordination with major medical centres and also to provide the workers with medical care and medicines for free. All these activities have been proved helpful for the struggling labourers.

He has constantly raised his voice against the airlines fleecing Gulf Malayalees during the peak seasons, including school vacations and Onam, Vishu and Ramadan festivals.

He believes that the ex-patriots are always an exploited lot. Neither the Indian Government, nor the Kerala Government has tried to find solutions to their problems. Narayanan has been part of many initiatives aimed to get the basic minimum demands of the ex-patriots fulfilled.
