Bright purple stains still blan-
ket portions of the pitchwalk five
days after Kaleidodash s colourful
run around the Queen s Park
Organisers of the event promised
to have the Savannah restored by
Tuesday, but this has proven dif-
ficult, as the stubborn stains con-
tinue to be a problem for them to
"I guess we are surprised, we
didn t really expect it taking this
long, you know, but we just not
giving up," one of the head organ-
isers, Jamie Garcia, said in a tele-
"We really have not stopped,
just going, going, going."
She said even with yesterday s
heavy rain, people were still out
trying to scrub away the powdered
When asked what the coloured
substance was made of, she said
it was the same powder (abeer)
used for Phagwah celebrations,
mixed with water.
"It s exactly the same substance
you use for Phagwah, J Ouvert par-
ties, Machel fete, it s nothing out
of the ordinary," she said.
Damian Baboolal, 28, who has
actively celebrated Phagwah for
almost 20 years said it would even-
tually go away.
"If they mixed it with water, it s
not supposed to last. Especially
with the rainfall," he said in tele-
phone interview yesterday.
Baboolal, who lives and works
in the Port-of-Spain area, added
that if Kaleidodash was indeed
power-washing the pitchwalk and
the powder was mixed with water,
it should have come off by now.
He added, however, that the
group s inaction on Sunday night
to clean up the residue had caused
the stains to persist.
"If they had done it right away,
it would be gone already. Because
they left it, it will stain longer,
that s a fact."
Garcia had said because of poor
lighting Sunday night, the organ-
isers could not power-wash the
Savannah immediately after the
Acting director of the Horticul-
tural Division Kamaldeo Maharaj
Group continues clean-up efforts...
said he intended to inspect the Savan-
nah today (Friday) to see how effective
the clean-up effort had been.
If it is not cleaned, he said, "We will
contact them and see what they plan
to do further."
The division is responsible for giving
the green light for use of the Savannah,
but Kaleidodash had applied to the
NCC. Maharaj reiterated yesterday that
"NCC should not have given them per-
He said he was not too worried about
the grass being stained, as it would
recover in time.
"It will regenerate itself, especially
because of the rainy season," he said
by telephone yesterday.
He commended the group for not
giving up on the clean-up.
Public response to the aftermath has
been mixed, as some say it s no big
deal, while others are outraged.
The day after Papa Bois Conservation
posted a picture of a stained portion
of the pitchwalk on Facebook with the
caption "Clean it!," the group made
another statement, saying it did not
know Kaleidodash was an event for
charity, and that event organisers were
not environmental experts.
"We need to support these guys in
their good work. Keep it up. We mess
up sometimes as well, and when we
do, it s always in public. We know the
sting of criticism all too well, don t let
it stop you from doing good work. T&T
needs people like you," part of the post
Others have said that does not
indemnify Kaleidodash from criticism
A Twitter user posted on Monday:
"Um. Love the idea of Kaleidodash but
I m not liking the fact that the Savannah
looks like it s bleeding. Like I drove
around and felt sad."
Shane Jagdeo, who did not participate
but saw the pictures of the Savannah,
completely rejected the idea that a char-
itable cause meant having a more
"It doesn t matter if it was for char-
ity...Those colours baked into the pitch-
walk under the sun all day Monday. If
they were serious about clean-up, they
would have done it Sunday night, or
come out there 6 am Monday morning."
He added the group should have done
its homework on the dyes they were
using, saying the Savannah was not
some small field to mess up.
"It s part of the capital city," Jagdeo,
a San Fernando resident and environ-
mental enthusiast, said yesterday by
