Mattanu pulakaagra kanthatha vitaanamu thakina

Barely an instrument but only his raising and falling cadencic voice to lend here are just a few lines, ofcourse among his thousands, that he immortalized.

Nanu Bhavadeeya dasuni,
Manambuna Neeyapu Kintabuni Thaachina,
Adi Naaku Mannanaya.

Chelvagu Nee padapalvambu
Mattanu pulakaagra kanthatha vitaanamu thakina
Nochunanchu Nay naniyada.

Alka maanavu gada ikanaina
Araala Kuntala
