Meaning of the song:
If you sit quietly with folded hands (kaikaTTi kuLitare) saying it is not possible (Agadu eMdu - kailAgadu eMdu)
then nothing is possible (sAgadu kelasavu muMde)
where there is will there is a way (manasoMdiddare mArgavu uMTu)
always (eMdeMdu) you should have courageous mind (keccede irabEku)
If the sculptor (shilpi) was kept quiet (edeguMdiddare) saying that the stone (kaggalleMdu) is very hard and
not possible to carve anything out of it (kettalAgadu)
then there would not have been the (Agutitte kalegaLa bIDu) land/statue of GOMATESHWAR (gommaTEshana nelenADu),
intricate carvings at BELURU and HALEBEEDU (Amarashilpi Jakanachari's sculpture)
If VISHVESHVARAYYA (vishvEshvarayya) had not taken pains (shrama paDadiddare) to build kannambadi bridge (kannaMbADiya kaTTAdiddare)
near Mysore to KAVERI river to flow as it is (kAvEriyanu hariyalu biTTu),
the agricultural lands in MANDYA and MYSORE would not have grown golden crops (baMgAra beLeva honnADu) like Sugarcane,Rice,Coconuts,
this part of KARNATAKA would not see any developments.(Agutitte sirinADu namma kannaDa sirinADu)
Hard work begets reward always (kai kesarAdare bAyi mosaru eMba)
(Kannada proverb – kai kesarAdare bAyi mosaru – If your hands get mud, your mouth will get curds)
This is the fact (satya) and experience (anubhava) of old generation (hiriyara) and
we should remember this everday (ida nenapiDabEku nitya).
Work is worship - Life depends on our hard-work (duDimeya naMbi baduku)
we shall find GOD in our duty (adarale dEvara huDuku)
then only we shall find bright future in our life (namma bALali baruvudu beLaku)

Here is a comedy scene between Dwarakish, TN Balakrishna and Bangalore Nagesh from the film ‘Bangarada manushya’.
Shivalingu (Dwarakish) wanted to get marry. His father Rachutappa (TN Balakrishna) insists that he should be wise enough to get marry.
Shivalingu again demands to get him married otherwise he will attempt suicide. Rachutappa easily agrees to his decession of attempting suicide. Shivalingu requests for Rs. 5/- to have Tea before he attempts suicide. Father accepts and gives money also. His action was questioned by the barber (Bangalore Nagesh) and Rachutappa tells him that his son will never attempt suicide and he will be back to home through back-door.
Shivalingu goes to a pond and wait for the water to become hot before he jumps into the pond. Rajeeva (Rajkumar) on his way to village finds Shivalingu and convinces him and take him back to village.
