Manraj Singh is a poet, storyteller, stand-up comedian, TEDx speaker/performer, and emcee who is best known as the “Versatile Shayar”. Without a doubt, Manraj Singh wears several hats. Manraj Singh is one of a few persons who can speak from their hearts and use magical words to connect to everyone’s brains. EnGame Publishing House, in collaboration with Entrepreneur stories, Indian Start-up Magazine, and Entrepreneur Hunt is honoured to present Manraj Singh with the Nation’s Icon Award 2022 for his remarkable, uncommon, unique. With his motivating words, he reigned the hearts of his audience and stood tall as a genuine role model and a source of inspiration for society.
Manraj Singh, who was born and raised in the city of Rudrapur, Uttarakhand, began his career as a speaker, poet, and elocutionist at a young age and is now stealing hearts with his mind-blowing poems, stories, and speeches. Peering into the life of this developing personality reveals more about his inventiveness and achievements. To begin with, at the age of 23, he has performed over 200 live shows and has made 13 TEDx appearances across India. The connections he developed early in his career proved to be beneficial later on, particularly when it came to planning his shows and establishing a following.
Manraj finished his education at R.A.N Public School. From the outset, he has an all-around demeanour. He has worked in practically every field on a professional level, including sports, writing, music, and the performing arts. After that, he went to Pune to pursue his higher education. He earned his law degree from Bharati Vidyapeeth University’s New Law College in Pune, as well as his Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) from the International School of Business and Media (ISB&M) in Pune. He began visiting open mics after arriving in Pune, and he quickly became a favourite of many. He has an extensive fan base among the younger generation, which also makes him stand out in significant ways.
Manraj has opened up incredible new possibilities, and he is devoted to his cause and relentless in his pursuit of it. Many people have fantastic ideas, but much fewer are ready to put their lives on the line to support them. His path has been a rollercoaster of emotions and a true encouragement for everyone who chooses to follow their passions and aspirations. Everyone adores him for his sassy sense of humour and his ability to express the abstract of life via beautiful words in the form of poetry. In the race of academics, dreams, and passion, he stands out with an absolute blend of Comedy, Poetry, and Dreams.
He says, “When you are genuine to yourself and passionate about what you do, you choose to perceive option over the obstacle. Your genuine identity isn’t hidden behind masks since the personal and professional paths you take in life are totally consistent with who you are. Every experience will teach you something new and help you grow as a performer. Performing in various locations allowed me to gain a better grasp of how to communicate with all types of audiences.”
It goes without saying that the most difficult challenge any speaker encounters is connecting with the audience, not diction or subject. Manraj’s storytelling incorporates humour, which elicits emotional responses from the audience and helps them relate to what he says. He has a way of making people laugh and keeping them focused on what he is saying. For several years, his humour and powerful words have charmed hearts and tickled funny bones in the form of poets, stories, lectures, and open mic events.

Manraj concludes with his words of wisdom “Success doesn’t taste as nice without a few setbacks, but I’ve always believed that setbacks provide an opportunity to put yourself to the test and grow as a person. It has never been simple for me to excel in a variety of disciplines. Many individuals focus on either their studies or their love, but I wanted to give my all to both, thus there were occasions when I would go on shows/tours in different places for 3-5 days, then return to college and take tests. Apart from the fans, my family has been a source of inspiration for me, and the affection I’ve received from all over the country has been overwhelming.”
