Castles in the air - they are so easy to take refuge in. And so easy to build, too.

आम्हां घरी धन शब्दांचीच रत्नें | शब्दांचीच शस्त्रें यत्न करुं ||
शब्द चि आमुच्या जीवांचे जीवन | शब्दें वांटूं धन जनलोकां ||
तुका म्हणे पाहा शब्द चि हा देव | शब्द चि गौरव पूजा करुं ||
- abhang of Tukaram Wolhoba Ambile of Dehu

Now This Fellow is a Survivor

The word survivor is used so lightly nowadays, you come out of a tough marriage and say you 'survived'. You say that for escaping from a mad boss or some tough situation in life. If you're lucky, you might actually survive an aeroplane crash. But here is a guy, or a buffalo calf really, who survived. When all hope was lost between the jaws of a pride of lionesses and a crocodile even, she hung on to her dear life until her herd gathered courage and returned to fight their oppressors. Now when all seems lost, when clouds have darkened the sky from horizon to zenith, remember the buffalo, and plod on.

The link to the YouTube video is here in case it doesn't work on the blog.
