Arun Ferreira released from jail

http://arunferreira.wordpress.com/2012/01/04/arun-ferreira-released-from-jail/

The district and sessions court of Gadchiroli on Wednesday granted bail to Mumbai-based alleged Maoist Arun Thomas Ferreira (40) who was arrested by the anti-naxalite squad in connection with a police-naxalite encounter in the district.

Farreira, who was arrested along with senior naxalite leader Arun Satya Reddy alias Murali in Nagpur in 2007, was acquitted of 11 different cases, including a case of unlawful activities by the sessions court in Nagpur. However, whenever he was acquitted of one charge and was ordered release, the state police re-arrested him on fresh set of charges.

He was booked by the Gadchiroli police last year after he was acquitted by the local court in another charge. It was alleged that Ferreira was involved in a police-naxalite encounter near Jafargarh under Korchi tahsil in Gadchiroli district in April, 2007.

Jagdish Meshram, the counselor of Ferreira informed that the principal district and session judge, SS Ahmed granted him a bail on condition that he should report to the nearest police station at Bandra in Mumbai once in a month and a personal bond of Rs 50,000.

It was an emotional moment for Ferreira and his relatives at the central jail here on Wednesday afternoon after his release. A group of lawyers, his parents and well-wishers received and he immediately proceeded for Mumbai.

Fed up with the alleged bias of the state police and jail authorities for re-arresting him on one case after being acquitted in another, Ferreira filed a petition before the Nagpur bench of Bombay high court on Tuesday against the state authorities and slapped a compensation of Rs 25 lakh.

COMMUNITY COMPOSTING

Composting StationComposting is one of the best ways you can reduce the amount of waste you are responsible for. It is the most effective and efficient way of returning Carbon to the soil. When Composting is done at source the benefits are multiplied several times.
In the past year a few households, societies and institutions in Bandra have not had the need to use the daily BMC garbage trucks that contribute to the many landfills around Mumbai.

What started off as devising a simple low cost method for conveniently composting food waste for one family on an experimental basis has now spread to 20 other locations with many more in active discussions.
 
The Compost Tumbler has answers to problems faced by those who are already doing composting with varied levels of success; whether the stench, the rodents & cats, lack of space, no soil, meat & fish waste, etc. As it is closed it eliminates these factors as well as making for idealy weather-proof.
 
Ventilation allows fresh air in and drainage ensures ridding of excess moisture. A weather resistant frame with pivots for tumbling the bin results in an ideal aerobic composting environment that can be maintained for many years.

All that it needs is our wet and dry organic waste put in, a couple of tumbles a day and about 15 to 20 days later, depending upon conditions conducive, the compost is ready.
