Tumhari khamoshi...

Tumhari khamoshi ke paar sunte hai hum
Tumhare inkaar mein bhi pyaar dekhte hai hum |
Humein jalaane ki koshish hai ye agar
To raakh bankar bhi apna intezaar batate hai hum ||

Batlaye koyi...

Batlaye koyi hamein peete kaise hai aankhon ki sharaab
Hum to haathon ki jaam se peete hai |
Batlaye koyi humein jeete kaise hai bin dekhe khwaab
Hum to Mehboob ki naam se jeete  hai ||

Kabhi koi tumse ...

Kabhi koi tumse itna pyaar na kiya hoga
Ki har haal mein tumhara hi zikr kiya hoga |
Kabhi koi tumhe itna yaad na kiya hoga
Ki har khayaal mein tumhara hi fikr kiya hoga ||

Zikr kiya hai ...

Zikr kiya hai aapki tabse, bolna seeka hai humne jabse
Talaash mein hai aapki tabse, chalna hai seekha humne jabse |
Milne ki khwahish mein aapse, doobe hai hum aise
Ki har guzaarish mein, bas maang'na seeka hai aapko rab se ||

Tumhari deedar...

Tumhari deedar mein zeenat hai kuch is tarah
Ki chaand bhi aasmaan se benoor ho jaye |
Humari intezaar mein taaqat hai kuch is tarah
Ki suraj khud ghuroob par majboor ho jaye ||

Some of his well known works are "antahpura geetegaLu", "baaLigondu nambike", "jeevana dharma yoga", "jnyaapaka chitra shaale", "maruLa muniyana kagga", "samskruti, umarana osage".
Mankutimmana kagga is undoubtedly the jewel in the crown. There are no such aspect of life that his work does not touch. It's commonly called 'KannaDada Bhagavadgeetha' for simplicity of language, vastness, greatness and poetic flow of content – scope and understanding of almost every verse from this work seems to grow richer and deeper with one’s own experience in life. The Kagga triggers thought process within the reader, irrespective of the person's knowledge level. Their meaning takes numerous dimension every time they are read. These verses are practical, straight, rich in moral values, not confined to any religion, caste or creed. Hence they are called 'Muktakas'. DVG stated that since poems are easy to remember for common men, he decided to put his experience in the form of muktakas. They are called 'Muktakagalu', meaning - Independent verses.  It need not be read in any particular order; one can choose to read it randomly.
