Colin D’Cruz …Goodbye Indigo Goa Grooves…Good Morning TV Show !!!

Yesterday I had this communication inside my mailbox, and my friend and artist Colin D’Cruz who is the most active musician I never met, give me a very good news for his very awesome career:now  he’s going to be on TV SHOW :

Colin D’ Cruz said:” I turned music producer after close to four decades of live performance. Five star hotel residencies, concerts, music festivals, international tours and just about every genre of music contributed to my continuously updated music vocabulary. Turning music producer was the most natural development in my career. Producing other artiste’s music gives me greater joy than producing my own. I set up a recording studio in Goa and went about doing just that and in a span of three years I produced over eighty originals many of which topped international internet charts. The world was ready for original western music from India but India wasn’t. Right through my career I only encountered record labels who knew exactly what every Indian wanted and that was songs to be sung in Hindi. It was just about the same with radio stations. Granted, we live in a country ruled by bollywood and Hindi is a major language. English speaking people in India may be a minority but then again when we talk even a tiny percentage of India, we are talking the population of an entire European country. Indigo 91.9 FM is probably the only radio station in the country to see this perspective, taking on the might of bollywood by broadcasting only international music in India. Most of the songs I have been producing has been in English and Indigo 91.9 was my only hope to have my music broadcast locally. It took me a long time to convince the heads that western music being produced in India easily matches and in many cases even outclasses international releases. I had documented my tracks that topped thousands of worldwide entries on internet charts and this finally convinced them to give my music a shot. The 29th of July 2012 will go down as a historical day for local talent in Goa when ‘Indigo Goa Grooves’ went on air in a one year long weekly broadcast. In just three months the slickly produced two hour broadcast grew into the most popular radio show in Goa, with people actually staying tuned right through the two hour show that featured a different local artiste as a guest every week. It has been one exciting journey and the curtains come down on yet another phase in my career. The final broadcast of Indigo Goa Grooves goes on air on the 21st of July featuring some of my favourite excerpts from past shows.  Colin D’Cruz ”

Casinha Raibandar : a brilliant chalet near Panjim, Goa

THANKS FOR SHARING ….

merry to go around

just 15 mins near panjim, down the ribandar road, after the divar jetty and post the old campus of GIM (goa institute of management) you reach a gorgeous looking door to your left hand side…
park your car there, or let go of the auto there. and step in…

WELCOME TO CASINHA RAIBANDAR!

this is a chalet (yes, i said that right, a chalet) set on the banks of the river mandovi, it doesn’t get better & bigger than this. this is one of those places you do not want to tell anyone about, you want to hide so that it stays hidden and only yours! sigh, so i am letting out a secret…

a very atmospheric place, the ambience lends itself to a large gang screaming for a loud party or to a soft conversation to be held on a stool by the window or a heavy breakfast to be had…

two places off the goa tourist map: budbudi tali & tambdi surla

Brilliant article, about 2 places in Goa, BUDBUDI & TAMBDI SURLA

merry to go around

we started the day early (atleast by goan standards). we had to cover great distances in one day, and had to get cracking, immediately. water bottle filled to the brim, camera battery charged, petrol filled in the car we headed out from bogmallo towards the south of goa by 10am. we were traveling right across the state!

one must say that the roads in goa are brilliant. they are beautiful – winding in and out, going up and then dipping down, large green trees flank the roads, monsoon weeds and creepers run amok along the side of the road and there are spacious stretches, followed by tight one-lane roads right through the town with bungalows on both sides… and monsoon makes all of this just sing with that greener green of the plants and the blacker black of the roads. added to that, the roads are not ‘pot-troughed’ bombay ones…

What a great idea ! – Quelle excellente idée !

The Council of Mapusa has installed inside the market a machine to compost. Any rubbish of the market are brought by truck to be recycled. It takes 30 minutes on the machine to do its job and get 20 kg of compost.
You will soon be able to come there and buy your compost if you can not do it yourself in your garden.
Such initiatives should emerge around Goa.

But if you want to get into composting, here’s what to do :

Compost is the keystone of soil fertility. Recycling green waste from the garden and those in the kitchen, it returns to the ground elements that plants need.

A well run compost provide a nutritious and powerful humus lighten heavy soil and give body to light soil. With long matured compost, you will not need any other fertilizer or soil Store. Moreover, attention to manure “fresh”! It causes, it is rarely known, many diseases and outbreaks of slugs.
What material?

Composting can be carried in a compost (or compost bin), suitable for small gardens and small volumes of waste, or simply pile, which better corresponds to the large gardens. This pile will instead lie in the shade, to prevent drying.
A bit of everything

Brown” materials: leaves, dry twigs, crushed branches, wood chips and sawdust, bark, straw … Dry and hard, they are rich in lignin and cellulose, carbon substances that provide the most stable humus. Used alone, they decompose slowly because they lack water and nitrogen.

“Green” materials: kitchen waste and fresh grass clippings. In contrast to the browns, they are wet, soft and contain a lot of rapidly fermentable substances. They are rich in minerals and nitrogen, but their performance is low in humus.

To get a good carbon / nitrogen and maintain good aeration of the compost mix, so it takes about half green materials, half brown materials.

Reduce waste into small pieces allows for easier mixing, reduced volumes and especially a faster attack by micro-organisms decomposers. The compost will be easier to recover at the end of decomposition and will not require to be screened.

Tip: As to your sizes or sweeps, especially in the fall, constitute, next to your compost bin, a pile of brown materials: cutting of trees and hedges, shredded, dry twigs, leaves … When you pour your kitchen waste, you can immediately cover with the brown material. Otherwise, at certain times, especially in winter, you may miss those precious brown materials.
Aerate and stir!

Aerate and mix is ​​essential, because the decomposing microorganisms need oxygen. Without this, there is an anaerobic fermentation, putrid, stinking, which gives a “substitute” very fertile compost. If there are too many green materials, they are bunched fermenting, which reduces aeration. The mix of rather coarse brown material can maintain sufficient porosity in the heap. Otherwise, you will offset lower stirring often, or turning the pile several times …
Every contribution, mix with the new waste previous contribution and the compost begins to form below. So you sow new waste with microorganisms and small animals decomposers, which accelerates decomposition.

Water, if necessary

Touch, regularly check that the mass is wet enough to allow a good decomposition. Water or add wet waste if it is dry. Beware of excess moisture that promote anaerobic fermentation source of odors and proliferation of midges. To prevent drying, install the pile in the shade, or put a lid or leaking tarp in summer.
When to use your compost?

Wait until your compost is mature, that is to say, blackish, lumpy and odorless. We are recognized over the original materials and red worms are not very numerous. It is obtained after about six months, sometimes more quickly silo. This is the one where you need to focus most of your plants.
The semi-mature compost can be recognized by its red worms, which are extremely numerous. It differs towards the middle, on the right drawing. Its cycle decomposition is not completely finished. Some intensive crops, such as squash and tomatoes, like this type of compost.

Le Council de Mapusa a installé a l’intérieur du marché une machine à composter. Tous les détritus du marché sont apportés par camions pour être recycler. Il faut 30 minutes à la machine pour faire son travail et obtenir 20 kg de compost.

Vous pourrez très bientôt venir acheter votre compost si vous ne pouvez pas le faire vous même dans votre jardin.

De telles initiatives devraient voir le jour un peu partout dans Goa.

Mais si vous voulez vous lancer dans le compostage, voici ce qu’il faut faire.

Le compost est la clé de voûte de la fertilité du sol. En recyclant les déchets verts du jardin et ceux de la cuisine, il restitue au sol les éléments dont les plantes ont besoin.

Un compost bien mené fournira un humus nutritif et performant qui allègera les terres lourdes et donnera du corps aux terres légères. Avec du compost longuement mûri, vous n’aurez besoin d’aucun autre engrais, ni de terreau de magasin. D’ailleurs, attention au fumier “frais” ! Il cause, ce qu’on sait rarement, de nombreuses maladies et des pullulations de limaces.

Quel matériel ?

Le compostage peut être mené dans un composteur (ou silo à compost), bien adapté aux petits jardins et aux petits volumes de déchets, ou bien tout simplement en tas, ce qui correspond mieux aux grands jardins. Ce tas devra plutôt se situer à l’ombre, pour éviter le dessèchement.

De tout un peu

Les matières “brunes” : feuilles mortes, brindilles sèches, branches broyées, copeaux de bois et sciure, écorce, paille… Sèches et dures, elles sont riches en lignine et en cellulose, substances carbonées qui fournissent le plus d’humus stable. Utilisées seules, elles se décomposent lentement car elles manquent d’eau et d’azote.

Les matières “vertes” : déchets de cuisine et tontes de gazon fraîches. À l’inverse des matières brunes, elles sont humides, molles et contiennent beaucoup de substances rapidement fermentescibles. Elles sont riches en sels minéraux et en azote, mais leur rendement en humus est faible.

Pour obtenir un bon dosage carbone/azote et maintenir une bonne aération du compost, il faut donc à peu près moitié matières vertes, moitié matières brunes.

Réduire les déchets en petits morceaux permet un mélange plus aisé, une réduction des volumes et surtout une attaque plus rapide par les micro-organismes décomposeurs. Le compost sera plus facile à récupérer en fin de décomposition et ne nécessitera pas d’être tamisé.

Conseil pratique : au fur et à mesure de vos tailles ou râtissages, en particulier à l’automne, constituez, à côté de votre silo à compost, un tas de matières brunes : coupes d’arbres et de haies, broyats, brindilles sèches, feuilles mortes… Lorsque vous verserez vos déchets de cuisine, vous pourrez aussitôt les recouvrir de ces matières brunes. Sinon, à certaines époques, notamment en hiver, vous risquez de manquer de ces précieuses matières brunes.

Aérez et remuez !

Aérer et remuer est essentiel, car les micro-organismes décomposeurs ont besoin d’oxygène. Sans cela, il se produit une fermentation anaérobie, putride, malodorante, qui donne un “ersatz” de compost peu fertile. S’il y a trop de matières vertes, elles se tassent en fermentant, ce qui diminue l’aération. Les mélanger à des matières brunes assez grossières permet de maintenir une porosité suffisante dans le tas. Sinon, vous devrez compenser le tassement en remuant très souvent, voire en retournant le tas plusieurs fois…

À chaque apport, mélangez les nouveaux déchets avec l’apport précédent et avec le compost qui commence à se former en dessous. Ainsi, vous ensemencez les déchets nouveaux avec les micro-organismes et les petits animaux décomposeurs, ce qui accélère leur décomposition.

Arrosez si nécessaire

Au toucher, vérifiez régulièrement que la masse est suffisamment humide pour permettre une bonne décomposition. Arrosez ou ajoutez des déchets humides si c’est sec. Attention aux excès d’humidité qui favorisent la fermentation anaérobie, source d’odeurs et de prolifération de moucherons. Pour éviter le dessèchement, installez le tas à l’ombre, ou posez un couvercle ou une bâche non étanche en été.

Quand utiliser votre compost ?

Attendez que votre compost soit mûr, c’est-à-dire noirâtre, grumeleux et sans odeur. On n’y reconnaît plus les matériaux d’origine et les vers rouges ne sont plus très nombreux. On l’obtient au bout de six mois environ, parfois plus vite en silo. C’est celui-là que vous devez privilégier pour la plupart de vos plantes.

Le compost demi-mûr se reconnaît à ses vers rouges, qui y sont extrêmement nombreux. On le distingue vers le milieu, sur le dessin de droite. Son cycle de décomposition n’est pas complètement achevé. Certaines plantes gourmandes, comme les courges et les tomates, apprécient ce type de compost.
