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 ||

Bhagyada Lakshmi Baramma - a parody

Have a look at this video:-

It is based on the original Hindustani (Kirana gharana) rendition by Pt. Bhimsen Joshi. he made it for a film starring Shankar Nag and Lakshmi:-

It isn't just a fun parody. The dialects of northern Karnataka differ signifficantly from the 'pure' language of the south, which is the basis for the official grammar and vocabulary. Northerners are often made fun of for being 'country bumpkins', because they speak differently.
