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

There's No Freedom Like That of a Child's Imagination

கடலுக்கு உண்டு கற்பனைக்கு இல்லை கட்டுப்பாடு

At last, a song whose lyrics are clear



At last, a song I understand.
At last, a song whose lyrics aren't mysterious.
At last, a song that touches.
At last, a song that's lucid.
At last, a song that deserved to win.
At last, a song with music that is not deafening.
At last, a song on a violin, the way songs are meant to be.

The full lyrics of Alexander Rybak's winning entry for Eurovision 2009:

Years ago, when I was younger
I kind a liked, a girl I knew
She was mine and we were sweet hearts
That was then, but then it's true
I'm in love with a fairytale
Even though it hurts
Cause I don't care if I lose my mind,
I'm already cursed

Every day we started fighting
Every night we fell in love
No one else could make me sadder
But no one else could lift me high above
I don't know what I was doing
When suddenly we fell apart
Nowadays I cannot find her
But when I do we'll get a brand new start
I'm in love with a fairytale
Even though it hurts
Cause I don't care if I lose my mind,
I'm already cursed

She's a fairytale yeah
Even though it hurts
cause I don't care if I lose my mind,
I'm already cursed


Next year, one hopes Susan Boyle will represent the UK.
