Kannada Sahitya Parishath, ChamrajaPete.

D V Gundappa, popularly known as DVG (1887 - 1975) was Kannada writer and philosopher. His most famous and notable work is "Manku Timmana Kagga", which is similar to wisdom poems of Sarvajna, in the medieval period.

Kagga (poem) offers great thoughts, facing challenges with cheerfulness, understanding everything as a devine play, recognizing ourown and others needs, honouring human aspirations and dreams, working for noble causes and above all dissolving our ego in a mature thinking.
Sri Japaananda Swamy
Countless similes, metaphors, and multitude of choice expressions make reading of Kagga thoroughly delightful. Though DVG only completed matriculation, he gained tremendous knowledge to become prominent literary name in Karnataka.

Sri Ravi Tirumalai has written four volumes of "Kagga Rasadhare", which enables common man to understand and appreciate DVG' s 945 poems (Kagga). Each poem was given word meaning and the thinking and the implications of the poems are written in KaggaRasaDhare.

Few dignitaries were present including H N Nagarajaih (HAMPANA), Sri JapaSwamy from Tumakru, who spoke beautifully about DVG and his Kagga.
