The triangle Goa Daman and Diu Due to the dense forest that Madeira presented itself in 1419, the new discoverers, without knowing the dangers that might existed inside the forest, they decided to build a cave inside of this small island and therefore creating a fort with a shelter. For several years this dock served for people to get into Madeira and also to leave it. As I contemplated this triangular nchor and the steps on this small island, my brain went all over the world to recall small islands and famous places where man put his feet for the first time: (1)   It took 550 years after João Gonçalves Zarco and Tristão Vaz Teixeira stepped on the triangular anchor, for the American Neil Armstrong to put his foot on the surface of the moon , on July 20, 1969 when he said: “That‘s a small step for man; one giant leap for mankind!” (2)   79 years later, on May 20, 1498, Vasco da Gama put his feet on Calicut , India , finally realizing the dream of Prince Henry the navigator to connect Portugal to India by sea! (3)   81 years later, in 1500, Pedro Álvares Cabral, put his feet on Porto Seguro, at 14 degrees latitude south, when he discovered officially Brazil. (4)   92 years later in 1511, the navigator Miguel Corte Real engraved on Dighton Rock , located in Berkley, Massachusets, U. S. A., his name, the Portuguese National symbols, and four crosses of the Order of Christ similar to the one that appears on the flag of Madeira. (5)   201 years later the English Pilgrims put their feet on Plymouth Rock located in the State of Massachusetts . U. S. A. , and this historical event originated the most celebrated holiday in America called “Thanksgiving”. (6)   There are other small islands which are famous because of the buildings they possess. The castle of Almoural built on a small island in the middle of Tagus river, constructed by the Portuguese Templars after 1160. (7)   The Tower of Belém , Portuguese National Monument , was built in a small island in the Lisbon Harbor , between 1515 to 1521. It has many Crosses of the Order of Christ with extremities terminating at 45 degrees. (8)   The island of Bedloe in the large New York Harbor were the world famous and admired Statue of Liberty stands, since 1886. (9)   The Yellala Rocks engraved by Diogo Cão on the margins of the Congo River, in Africa , in 1448. The rock of Sao Lourenço in SriLanka, engraved by Portuguese discovers in 1518, The Padrões, or Portuguese Discovery Markers, placed by Diogo Cão, along the western coast of Africa, and so many other monuments in so many places by the Portuguese discoverers. (10)   In the City Island, in Paris, France, where the famous Notre Dame Cathedral was built, there exist in front of it on the pavement a cupper circumference with a diameter about three feet. It is from this spot that all the geographic distances in France are measured.   

Here is the triangular anchor made out of the maritime rock by João Gonçalves Zarco and his crew after July 1st, 1419. On this photo we still see the TRIANGULAR ANCHOR and the steps carved on the rock of the small island by the first navigators. Conclusion: The triangular anchor on the Fort of São José made by João Gonçalves Zarco and Tristão Vaz Teixeira, 586 years ago should become the geographic symbol of the EPICENTER OF MADEIRA, similar to the epicenter at Notre Dame of Paris, France ! The greatest mathematician Buckminster Fuller, the inventor of the Geodesic Dome, said that the TRIANGLE is the geometric figure which is the strongest on the surface of the earth. The people of Madeira could not get a better icon than the TRIANGULAR ANCHOR -- to symbolize their excellent qualities of a people with determination to be successful in their endeavors!


COMMUNITIES GOINKARS OWN ACADEMY (GOA) CELEBRATE WORLD GOA DAY 2012 IN KARACHI ON 12TH AUGUST 2012 By Diana Joseph Own Academy (GOA) team headed by Deborah Santamaria (President) and Marshall Fernandes (Vice President) did a tremendous job of putting together a memorable day for parishnors of various parishes in Karachi who comprised of approximately 350-400 participants ranging from toddlers to senior citizens. Five bus loads of happy people arrived at the amazing Shamsi Farm where we were welcomed to the versatile scenic beauty which entailed clean and well kept guest houses as well gardens, huge lawns and the main attractions were the swimming pools along with their water slides and toddlers pools. The huge manmade lake with ducks surrounded by lush green lawns was a sight to behold with serene environment minus the sound of the hustle bustle of the busy city surroundings. This was indeed the ideal place to spend a day. GOA team had so many activities planned out for us all that there was not a single dull moment from the time we arrived at the farm house to the moment we departed. The main attraction was the Flag Hoisting ceremony after which we were connected on Skype Goa – Karachi and the famous Olavo Rodrigues (O’luv) live with us to watch the excitement of the crowd as we sang the National songs and waved small Pakistan flags which were distributed to all and amid the patriotic singing of the National Anthem and flag hoisting ceremony followed by cutting of the cake by Debbie and Marshall. The cake was really delicious and made in a shape of the Pakistan flag. Ami Goinkar song originally sung by Olavo Rodrigues was sung alongwith him on Skype with the whole crowd joining in enthusiastically. Olavo amazed us all when he played the same song on a Comb, which was mind blowing. We all went ballistic with the live music of DJ Fabian who kept the crowd entertained with a selection of latest numbers playing while people danced to the beat of lively music even while taking a dip in the pool. The water slide was an instant hit with the youth who thoroughly enjoyed riding down those slides individually as well as with their friends and siblings. The delicious morning snacks were served which were so filling and a total change to the usual patty or samosa or sandwiches, this was an open chunky chicken sandwich with cold slaw and ketchup and chilled glasses of Coke to wash them down. Marshall kept all informed with his announcements for the youth to register their names for the football and cricket matches which were played before lunch. Meanwhile people took to the pools where they enjoyed themselves in the crystal clear waters which were so welcoming in the hot summer afternoon. Once everyone was given ample time to register for the teams, Marshall announced the teams and the matches commenced, there was a lively coverage given on the mike by Marshall & Gerry who were the commentators for the cricket match. Rides in the peddle boats were also a source of entertainment for all young and old alike at It was soon time for lunch and we all queued up for the delicious, fresh and all time favorite chicken biryani, salad, raita and chicken charga pieces accompanied with chilled Later announcement once again was made for all the picnickers to collect their hampers consisting of Mineral water, Olpers flavored milk packs and the caramel crunch kulfa’s. It was time to announce regarding the post lunch activities and Marshall informed everybody of the tambola game to be held after the Father of the year, Mother of the year and Family of year activities took place through lucky draws. The GOA teams members adorned their heads with beautiful Copels consisting of seasonal fruits and flowers which gave a very festive look to the whole event. The 3 families Mr. & Mrs Campos & family, Mr. & Mrs Tony D’Souza & family & Mr. & Mrs Melvyn Nazareth

COMMUNITIES & family were selected for the family of the year through lucky draw had to compete among themselves by coming up with a Copel using their creativity utilizing material in the garden. Mr. & Mrs. Nazareth were selected family of the year 2012. The most amazing coincidence was the when both husband and wife John & Clare D’Souza were selected through a lucky draw for the Father and Mother of the year which brought tears to the eyes of the Mother of the year. Amazing gifts were distributed to the lucky winners which consisted of hampers, dinner vouchers for the famous Avari Hotels, as well as complimentary vouchers from Heads Up. A consolation prize was also given to Julie D’Souza for being creative for making neem leaves Copel. Sing song followed with the crowd enjoying the Konkani songs being rendered by GOA team participants with Allen Goveas and Ethan accompanying on the guitars. A brave attempt of a bilingual famous Konkani chorus song was also presented by Calwin and supported by his mom. Announcement of tea and snacks once again got people queuing up in a very orderly manner to collect the lovely hot tea with fresh refreshments while the live Konkani songs were sung by the Goa team kept the crowds entertained. Naomi Santamaria, Nikita Fernandes and Debbie Santamaria sand the theme song written by Basalio Mango “PROUD TO BE A GOAN” accompanied by Allan Goveas on the Guitars. The most amazing observation made during the whole days events and the way the organizers managed the events showed us a very good example of community coming together in oneness where there were people from all different backgrounds but all enjoyed the event as one people in a true Christian spirit of brotherhood. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Goinkar Own Academy (GOA) for bringing all the people together in oneness whether they spoke Konkani or not but all went back so happy and satisfied people who enjoyed a day of healthy entertainment with a great opportunity to mingle with different parishes. Way to go Goinkar Own Academy (GOA)!!! VIVA GOA – VIVA O’luv – VIVA Konkani. Together you have made a difference.

Exploring the “Mac Style ”

Music is an art form in which the medium is sound that is organized in time. Of course, putting together this medium called sound into a pleasant timing to generate the harmonious effects, is another form of art. There is one Goan musician who fits into the slot of the definition of music completely. Macedonio (Mac) Dourado, seems to hold dearly on to the antecedents of a regal musical ancestry. While starting off with the guitar under the tutelage of his late father Dionisio, he has never looked back for the last 26 years while making giant strides into the mystical world of music, especially the ‘crying of the soul’ in jazz harmonics. “My father was the inspiration through this all,” confirms Mac in a grateful phrasing. The Dourado family lineage traces its musical roots way back a few generations. Mac’s grandfather, with whom he not only shares a musical inheritence, but also the name Macedonio; was one of the most respected violinists in Cortalim. His father played the violin, flute, mouth organ and a few other instruments. “I remember the parities when my father would play the guitar with pure acoustic sound and I would fill-in with the rhythm. Then we would interchange with me on mouth organ and he on rhythm.,” reminisces Mac.

The interest in jazz music built-up in the young talented Mac many years ago. “I used to like to pick-up music casettes since young,” he informs. He then experienced, “The sound that soothed my ears and really touched my heart.” Eventually realisation dawned that, “There is much more to music.” This go him strated catching up with that “much more”.

His father listened to a lot of swing music a la Frank Sinatra and others. “The sound of these tunes used to ring into my ears and they have stayed there even now,” smiles Mac. He also grew up listening to greats like George Benson (of the ‘Maquerade’ fame). Later, during his musical jaunt at Delhi, he cam across many good musicians, especially Europeans, who he played alongside with. Eventually, the music within Mac evolved and he branched out into jazz music. His forte today. Over the years, Mac has emerged with a jazz style of his own. “I like doing chord melodies on the guitar. This fingerstyle (plucking) is now a part of me,” reveals an ebullient Mac. He is spurred on by Carlos Jobin tunes and does them all in his own style. He sings and at the same time is into vocal improvisation (scatting). Al Jereau, the jazz great, has also inspired his vocal imporvisations leading to atonal forays into a world beyond scatting. “Scatting is an old, outdated word now,” feels Mac. He has his own style which he likes to called ‘Macking’!

Mac is also adept at the bass guitar. Probably one of the few bass guitarists who can very comfortable sing as well as play the bass guitar, he has built up a unique style inculcating the chord knowledge of the great bassist Joe Pastorius. He adds, “And not forgetting the good-ole Wes Montgomery, who has exploited the octaves to the maximum. In fact he was called ‘King of Octaves’. I have developed a solo style on the guitar, inspirited by this genius,” reveals Mac. He heard the chords in the standard versions done by Wes and has been influenced greatly by those feats.

Mac has an ideé fixe about his performance, even with a few people in the audience. “I love working it out with my music and really playing my stuff irrespective of a crowd or no crowd,” is the way he goes about his musical business. “Music is my food… The oxygen to breathe. I simply talk, breathe, walk, run and of course sing and play music,” he says sotto voce. Music is obviously very dear to him and he states, “I have developed my own styles all through. Be it on the guitar or the keyboard or singing, I do it in the ‘Mac Style’,” he laughs. His repertoire emcompasses all that jazz can unfold besides funk, swing, bossanova, pop, counry and also Konkani and Portuguese tracks. “My mother Edna, taught me ‘Manha de Carnaval’ as a child and I sing the English version ‘A Day in the Life of a Fool’ by Ela Fitzgerald,” he informs.

His focus on music is all about arragements in his own style. Even the programming of his songs are put together on the keyboard in his own special way Mac has kept a distinguished musical company over the years. Besides all the timeless greats he has listened to and emulated since childhood, he has also performed with many jazz greats like the legendary Chirs Perry, the ace trombonist Anibal Castro and Benny Rosario. “Youngsters in Goan bands must learn that they do not need to imitate a singer,” feels Mac. It would be best for them to stick to their own tone. It sounds very artificial when one tries to imitate someone else’s style. “Youngsters even tend to imitate other established singers from Goa also,” says an amused Mac. This is absoultely uncalled for, thinks Mac. Mac’s unique musical flavor is enthusing. “My music is just improvisations on every instrument I play. This includes the vocals,” he emphasizes.

Frederick Noronha. Compreender a escrita Português de Goa Padre erudito Dr. Eufemiano Miranda, da Cortalim e agora na paróquia de Chicalim, gráficos fora dos contornos de Goan escrever em Português, em um recém-publicado livro. EXTRATO DE LIVRO Este estudo pretende ser um passo humilde para participar de pesquisas anteriores ainda Indo-Português de literatura, ou seja, as monografias de Vicente de Bragança Cunha (Bombaim, 1926), Filinto Cristo Dias (Goa, 1963), Vimala Devi e Manuel de Seabra (Lisboa, 1971). Ele tenta analisar o conteúdo ou temas das obras literárias abordadas com pelo indo-portuguesas escritores. A literatura palavra é tomado para significar produções literárias de natureza criativa ou de ficção. Indo-Português refere-se aqui aos escritores etnicamente indianos em quem não é uma confluência harmoniosa de normas europeias e motivos locais inspiração. Cinco temas são identificados: (i) o Bramanismo em conflito com o liberalismo consagrados nos escritos de Francisco Luis Gomes, principalmente seu romance Os Brahamanes (ii) O mundo dos proprietários (batcaras) e inquilinos (Mundkars) reflectido principalmente em O Orlando Costa Signo da Ira (Iii) O fascínio com o mistério de Bharat-Mata (Mãe Índia) (Iv) bailarina O templo da Índia (v) A terra e seu povo como retratado em Jacó Gip de e Dulce e Bodki Agostinho Fernandes, temas que refletem a história social de Goa. O capítulo Panorama da Vida Social de Goa nn seculos XIX e XX visa em obter uma visão do olho do contexto sócio-histórico da 19 e 20 séculos e compreender a influência da Presença português em Goa, na formação do goanensis homo. O cenário de ensino e aprendizagem, a criação da Imprensa e, como resultado, a evolução do jornalismo e vida social, são examinados brevemente. O segmento de Christian da sociedade, principalmente, em relação ao Hindu setor, passou por uma separação cultural. Como conseqüência disso, os costumes sociais e as idéias do convertidos foram alterados. A aculturação que teve lugar em Goa teria o direito de chamado de uma civilização luso-tropical, para usar a expressão cunhada por Gilberto Freyre, o sociólogo brasileiro-escritor que visitou Goa em os anos 1950. Em seguida, vem "Francisco Luís Gomes: O Bramanismo los Conflito com o Liberalismo '. A Constituição de 1822, que o Português Parlamento votou a favor, depois da Revolução de 1820, e do Carta Constitucional de 1826, dado por D. Pedro IV para a nação e seus territórios ultramarinos, foram uma precipitação de concreto do Liberal idéias proclamado pelas revoluções americana e francesa. Francisco Luis Gomes da Navelim, um médico de formação e membro da Parlamento, tornou-se o representante por excelência do liberalismo em Goa. No Parlamento, ele lutou pela liberdade em seu Goa amado. Seus Brahamanes novela de Os nasceu de seu liberalismo juntamente com a sua Romantismo, inspirada no Evangelho e uma visão para o fiel Nação português. O romance retrata o conflito dramático entre o branco ea superioridade Bramanismo trigo de compleição) ou o dois tipos de orgulho enraizado na raça e cultura. A resolução ou a moral deste conflito é encontrada nas palavras que Francisco Luís Gomes coloca na boca de seu personagem Tomas: "Minha vitória será a reforma de todos os códigos pelo Evangelho. " Isto é seguido pelo capítulo "O Signo da Ira EO Mundo dos Batcarás e Manducares '. Goan sociedade composta de uma classe de proprietários de terras (batcaras) e outro de trabalhadores rurais. O último viveu para servir a primeira. O pequeno classe média que compreende apenas cerca de 10 por cento. Esta realidade social presta-se à ficção. Vimala Devi, Laxmanrao SarDessai e R.V. Pandit retratado em seus contos e poemas. Uma obra de alto valor estético foi O Orlando Costa Signo da Ira, uma obra em que Neo-Realismo ganhou o seu autor Ricardo Malheiros Prêmio em Portugal. Filosofia indiana, religião e mitologia estão interligadas e formam uma viva a tradição. Eles ainda são uma parte muito importante da vida, e sociedade, onde nasceram e floresceram. Mistério da Índia e fascínio reside neles.

Nossa literatura tem sido enriquecida com contos e poemas que refletir os princípios filosóficos ou hinos de louvor aos deuses, para suas funções, ou homenagem-retratos de grandes personalidades de História indiana. Na sociedade indiana, particularmente em Goa, existia uma mulher levada para simbolizar uma contradição: a dançarina do templo (kalavant). Ao longo do tempo, o devadasi, ou servo dos deuses, tornou-se uma mulher que vendeu a si mesma. Historiadores e sociólogos usado pproaches variadas para estudar este instituição. As meninas nautch ou devadasis sofreu uma metamorfose na imaginação romântica do poeta Indo-Português para se tornar um símbolo de beleza e graça feminina. O tema do kalavant exerceu uma estranha fascínio sobre o poeta goesa. No capítulo "A Terra ea Grei", nota-se que a sociedade é goesa retratado principalmente em duas obras de língua portuguesa de ficção. A classe média cristã do fim do século 19 e início do 20 é retratado com suas idiossincrasias e escondido fraquezas na novela Jacob e Dulce por Gip, um pseudônimo de Francisco João da Costa. No romance de Agostinho Fernandes Bodki um encontra uma foto do rural sociedade hindu com suas crenças, usos e costumes. O escritor indo-Português é um "romântico", um homem sob o feitiço de um "Ruptura" e um "desejo de totalidade". Etnicamente indiano, ele tem em De um lado, os traços embebidas de uma cultura ocidental, cristão, América e, por outro lado, vive sob uma forte subconsciente da -Védica Upanishadic substrato hindu. Ele se vira para si mesmo em uma dramática e de forma dolorosa, como os românticos, em sua busca por auto-identidade e auto-definição. Da perspectiva da estética literária, indo-portuguesas literatura pode ser considerado como um corpo de obras concebidas e trouxe na agonia e êxtase de nostalgia. Se algumas obras podem ser claramente classificados como pertencentes ao Romantismo ou Neo-Realismo (Realismo Social), outros, principalmente as obras poéticas, tiveram influências das escolas Parnasian ou simbolista, ou são melhor interpretados no luz das teorias em sânscrito de alankara, Riti e Rasa. Português por expressão e indiano pelo esteticismo do escritores, principalmente dos poetas, bem como por causa dos temas e os motivos que lhe estão subjacentes, Indo-Português literatura pertence à Tradição literária português. Assim como o estilo manuelino em arquitetura - uma mistura feliz do gótico florido com o poesia plástica de elementos da flora e fauna do Oriente e do motivos marítimos da naus Português - é uma característica Estilo português.

TRAVEL Da Foz do Douro até Goa-3 Pedro e Inês estavam empolgados com a ideia de ir visitar a velha Goa e tinham por cicerones os seus bons amigos goeses, Francisco e Felícia com os quais já se sentiam como se fossem da família. Pedro agora entendia o que o fascinava em Goa, era aquela comunhão de almas ligadas por fortes laços fraternos. Saíram logo de manhã cedo no carro de seus amigos goeses e bem preparados para um bom piquenique. A paisagem era tão bela e de exuberante vegetação que Inês, estava extasiada olhando tudo com um pormenor num silêncio quase místico e pensava como o Pai do Céu tinha abençoado determinados locais da Terra e seus povos com imagens da Natureza que de certeza foram extraídas do paraíso. Francisco explicou que a velha cidade hoje apresenta apenas algumas igrejas, duas portas e o paço episcopal. Pedro falava sobre Afonso de Albuquerque mandar logo reconstruir as muralhas destruídas durante a batalha. A zona da cidade virada para terra era quase toda rodeada por muros. Enquanto Francisco explicava, Inês pensava na Velha Goa conhecida no passado como a Roma do Oriente, e a capital do estado português da Índia desde 1510, um dos territórios com maiores marcas da presença lusa. Explicava também que nas muralhas de Goa existiam várias portas, sendo a de maior destaque a porta do cais, mais tarde transformada no arco dos vicereis e em 1597 D. Francisco da Gama ordenou que fosse deitada abaixo para ser erigido um arco triunfal em memória de seu bisavô, comemorando um século da chegada de Vasco da Gama à Índia. Pedro falava sobre Afonso de Albuquerque mandar logo reconstruir as muralhas destruídas durante a batalha. A zona da cidade virada para terra era quase toda rodeada por muros. Francisco explicava que com a invasão dos maratas e a mudança da capital portuguesa para Mormugão, Goa entrara então em declínio intenso. O governo de Marquês de Pombal nomeou novo governador D. José Pedro da Câmara, um arcebispo D. Francisco de Assumpção e Brito, para os dois restaurarem Goa e ser mais segura, para tal deram benefícios de isenções para quem construísse casas dentro das muralhas. Nasceu a sede do governo, quartéis de artilharia, uma biblioteca pública, alfândega, um templo hindu e uma mesquita. Inês olhou e ouviu tudo em silêncio e meio comovida e meia triste, quando ouviu falar no Bairro das Fontainhas …então umas lágrimas rolaram pelo seu lindo rosto tão perfeito e inocente. Era a saudade do Porto dela, da sua cidade. Então disse: -Estou profundamente emocionada, olho muita coisa aqui dos monumentos às casas, mais me parece estar em Portugal. Francisco, como sabes tu assim tanta história sobre Portugal? Francisco respondeu: - Meu pai e principalmente meu avô sabem muita, muita história de Portugal e claro sobre a Índia portuguesa. Bem amigos irmos fazer o piquenique e comer? Inês sorrindo docemente disse: Oh Francisco, não é irmos …é, vamos fazer o piquenique. Todos sorriram e alegremente procuraram um bom local para o seu piquenique. Espreitando Vila do Conde No final da comerem, e de uma boa e longa conversa sobre a história de Goa, Pedro foi buscar o computador ao carro para tomar umas notas e então Francisco mais uma vez ficou extasiado a ver o fundo do monitor do computador do Pedro e perguntou o que era. Pedro abriu uma pasta no computador com fotos e começou a explicar. Estas imagens que estão a ver foram tiradas por uma poetisa e artista fotografa, Marina Yela, uma portuguesa filha de mãe portuguesa e pai espanhol, podem ver suas belas fotos na página Mar Yela, esta artista e poetisa colabora muito com minha amiga poetisa e escritora, também do distrito do Porto e uma amante dos ricos monumentos de Portugal e da Índia Portuguesa a minha boa amiga Maria José. Estes monumentos pertencem a Vila do Conde um dos 18 municípios do núcleo do Distrito do Porto da Região do Douro Litoral. Esta primeira foto em grande plano é de uma nau exposta no cais do Rio Ave, nos antigos estaleiros de Vila do Conde. É uma nau seiscentista, a chamada Nau da Carreira das Índias. Este Mosteiro iniciou-se em 1318 é uma mistura de Gótico, manuelino e rococó. Tem planta de cruz latina de nave única e transepto muito grande. Seu interior a nave é coberta de caixotões de talha octogonal ricamente decorados. Tem também um coro-alto cujo tecto com abóbada em berço revestido por caixotões de talha intensamente decorada, e um coro baixo com dois retábulos e um cadeiral com duas filas. Encontramos a Capela dos Fundadores, de estilo rococó, onde estão seus túmulos. Uma cabeceira poligonal e uma grande rosácea do tipo radiante no exterior. A Igreja matriz no mesmo recinto é monumento nacional, um gótico mais tardio com elementos manuelinos, barrocos e neogóticos. Tem uma cruz latina de três naves. A sua construção de quinhentos beneficiou e muito com a passagem do Rei D. Manuel por Vila do Conde em 1502, tendo sido atribuído pelo rei um subsídio e criado um imposto. O pórtico desta Igreja fortemente decorado de autoria de João de Castilho assim como a bela torre sineira quadrangular erguida em 1573 concebida por João Lopes. Finalmente para engrandecer e enriquecer este espaço, temos o Aqueduto de Vila do Conde também monumento nacional incluído na zona especial de protecção da Igreja de Santa Clara. De início este aqueduto tinha 999 arcos, com cerca de 4km, é o segundo aqueduto mais extenso de Portugal. Este aqueduto foi construído com a finalidade de levar a água os seus arcos, até ao chafariz do Convento, entre 1705 e 1714 começava no Convento de Santa Clara até a nascente de Terroso na Póvoa de Varzim. Francisco e Felícia estavam encantados, e aqueles dois jovens casais faziam um intercâmbio cultural de uma imensa riqueza. Felícia muito entusiasmada perguntou: Pedro, podes continuar a mostrar e a explicar-nos tudo que tens e sabes sobre castelos e palácios de Portugal? São tão belos e todos que falas têm uma história tão rica, se fizeres essa gentileza, aos poucos íamos conhecendo melhor. Pedro e Inês quase em simultâneo disseram: -Claro com todo o prazer, e é uma honra para nós ainda maior receber vossa visita na nossa cidade do Porto, são nossos convidados e vamos mostrar-vos tudo ao vivo. Os quatro sorriram, e felizes regressaram a suas casas, enquanto isso, Inês sonhava com tudo o que ainda ia ver em Goa, Damão e Diu, Felícia estava com um ar sonhador e distante, talvez quem sabe, já imaginando-se em Portugal a ver todos Mosteiros, Castelos e Palácios.

POETRY Ondas do Mar

São belas, fortes e suaves, Ondas onde me perco e divago, Têm mensagens que não sabes, Escuta o que na alma trago. É um registo memorial, Da bela história de Portugal, Rica de misturas e partilhas, Noutras terras e noutras ilhas. Olho as andas do mar, Meu amigo, meu irmão, Tu me esperas, e te vou visitar, Levo-te um abraço, dás-me tua mão. Elas rolam, rolam sem cessar, Eu por vezes escuto tua alma a chorar, É uma voz forte que nos chama, Um doce sentir que nos une e inflama. Nesse rolar das ondas do mar, Nas águas vem o pensamento, Do irmão que distante me está a chamarE a onda do mar, traz-me seu vibrar. No horizonte, vislumbro belas cores, Do sol poente que me leva a outros mares, Capto no ar muitas angústias e dores, Vislumbro meigos e nostálgicos olhares. Então solto asas e apanho o vento, Levo-te minha alma e coração, É hora de parar com dor ou tormento, Olhando o mar, vamos juntos fazer uma canção. De: Maria José dos Santos Leite

POETRY •UM PORTO DE ABRIGO Aqui estou eu, sozinho, abandonado, passeando entre as ruas da perdição maculando entre as teias da poluição, prescrito deste mundo que me levou ao abandono. Aqui estou eu neste ermo, onde a realidade não se une à humanidade. Gasto, consumido ao abrigo de ninguém prostrado neste sófrego nada, encarcerado a esta cela que me obriga a esta condena. Porém, aqui continuo entediado, e lento caminho pelos muros deste vão num limbo sombrio que ignora a diferença. Mas se existe um espaço entre o inferno e o céu onde estou eu? Em que boia eu amarro em que fundo eu ancoro este meu ínfimo bote se não encontro um porto de abrigo que me adopte? Marina Yela 2012

Para a formação de Portugal, entre outras Ordens Militares

Religiosas, a ação da Ordem dos Templários foi determinante. Esta Ordem mais tarde, quando da sua extinção Papal, em Portugal foi transformada em Ordem de Cristo. O quadro à óleo simboliza as caravelas e as naus da expansão marítima portuguesa, identificadas com a Cruz de Cristo (Ordem de Cristo), e os três frades representam o esforço de evangelização e transformação de mentalidades dos povos, africanos, americanos e asiáticos, feito pelas ordens religiosas, sobretudo Jesuítas. Encontram-se também representados na sua base o estádio civilizacional dos respetivos povos." As melhores saudações e um abraço,

Litterbugging Last week my husband and I almost met with a serious accident. We were behind a bus, driving at a very sane speed, discussing what we needed to buy for the house that week. Suddenly a boy between the ages of 11 – 14 leaned out of the bus and threw his Coca Cola can out of the window. The can hit our windscreen and bounced off only to be crushed beneath another car that was overtaking us. I was infuriated. Not only was this child littering the surroundings but he almost caused an accident. What are they teaching children in schools nowadays? We passed the bus and I brandished an angry fist at the litterbug who merely ducked out of sight. Are we so far gone that we have no consideration for other people on the streets? How difficult is it to carry an empty can or an empty packet of chips or biscuits to the nearest dustbin? It enrages me to see people pass by and throw litter openly on the streets and gutters. Is this how we live at home? Do we just throw our trash anywhere or do we meticulously gather up all the garbage and throw it away? Why can’t we treat the streets the same way we treat our homes? There was a group of girls living in the same building as I do. They had a ground floor apartment. I happened to take my dogs for a walk to that area and I was horrified to see wet waste and dry waste strewn carelessly all over the backyard. A strong stench of rotting trash permeated the air. This is clearly not the way to live. I was then told that this behavior is quite normal for people. I thought it was a very scary thought. I agree it is not safe to burn all the garbage but at the same time it is not safe to allow toxic stuff lying around so openly. Why have we lost our consideration for the people around and why are we mistreating our planet? How difficult is it to take a couple garbage bags or cardboard boxes to a picnic and collect the litter? How tough is it to carry empty pet bottles, tetra packs, plastic wraps home and dispose of them correctly instead of throwing them on the road or sidewalks? Do we not have any respect for our surroundings? What I find most ironical is people clad in designer clothes, driving to work in posh cars, stopping by garbage dumps and walking out of their car with trash bags. If they can afford expensive clothes and cars surely they can afford a proper garbage disposal contraption. All I’m trying to say is that we should make a serious exertion to respect the people around us and our surroundings. Our state and country should be treated the same way we would treat our homes. If we see someone throwing his litter on the streets, pavements or storm drains we should stop him. There’s no harm in correcting someone. I do it. If I see someone throwing an empty packet or bottle on the road I make him pick it up in the hopes that he remembers that it is not right and he stops someone else from doing it in the future. Together we can keep our city clean and green!!!
