Dirljiva priča o majstorici yoge koja je nekad radila kao plesačica u Londonu, a onda je u Dalmaciji otkrila ljubav prema tovarima

Kada je prije četiri godine povodom Dana općine na jelšanskoj rivi svečano otkrivena skulptura tovaru, danas promidžbeni adut No. 1 toga ljetovališta, kulturolog, slikar i ravnatelj Likovnog centra u Zagrebu Jugan Splivalo, rekao je da je njen autor Ivan Škrmeta zapravo altruist s umjetničkom žicom.

A pokojni Slavomir Drinković, tada šef kiparske katedre ALU Sveučilišta u Zagrebu, dodao je da je dobro da tovara imamo barem u bronci te da on zaista zaslužuje budućnost spomenika.

No, ima li još uvijek idiličnih oaza gdje ljudi mirno žive s tim milim i dragim životinjama? Rijetko jer je tovara, izbavitelja i hranitelja težaških obitelji, dolaskom mehanizacije na škoj praktično nestalo, ali ipak takav prizor svakodnevno možemo vidjeti u Dolu sv. Marije na otoku Hvaru.

Zgodna Englezina Jana Appleyard, ranije profesionalna plesačica u Londonu, danas je majstorica (guru) yoge koja se ustrajno brine o svoja tri tovara i jednom konju, a nerijetko ih se može vidjeti i u šetnji po tom pitoresknom selu, prirodi koju čovjek još nije uništio.

- U djetinjstvu nisam imala ama baš nikakvo iskustvo čak ni s kućnim ljubimcima. Svoju veliku ljubav prema prirodi i životinjama otkrila sam prije desetak godina, kada sam se doselila ovdje u Dol, gdje sam kupila i uredila staru kamenu kuću u kojoj gostima pružam usluge smještaja. A što se tovara tiče, prvog sam nabavila prije otprilike pet godina, bio je mlad i zamolila sam njegova vlasnika da mi ga proda, a onda sam mu uz pomoć prijatelja i susjeda napravila kućicu i počela se brinuti o njemu - pripovijeda nam Jana, sada već prava Dolka.

U početku nije puno znala o njihovu uzgoju, pa je istraživala na internetu, slušala je ljude s iskustvom i vrlo brzo ušla u štos, svom Panou je pružala svu potrebnu pažnju i animaciju. Jana mu je dala bezuvjetnu ljubav, koju je on njoj uzvratio. Naučio je biti dobar i (donekle) poslušan.

A ono što je najvažnije time je započela spašavati tovare na našem najsunčanijem otoku, jer je ona nakon toga nabavila još dvije ženke - Lula, koja je sestra Panoa, i Lily-Rose, u koju je Pano onako magareći ludo zaljubljen. Ipak, sve to nije bilo dovoljno, pa je društvu pridodala i kobilu Zenu, tako da joj sada posla ne fali, ali zato ima zadovoljstva na pretek.

- Tovari su od pamtivijeka bili izvrgnuti ruglu, nezasluženo, ovo Božje (biblijsko) stvorenje, danas nazivaju - magarac, osao, tovar ili tovor, najodaniji čovjekov prijatelj, ali i rob – govori čakavska pjesnikinja Vlatka Buj, dok se fetiva Jelšanka, povjesničarka umjetnosti Jasenka Splivalo živo sjeća ranih jutarnjih sati kada bi se ispod prozora čulo njakanje ia, ia, ia... što bi se sjedinilo s pjevom kokota i označilo odlazak u polje.

To je ustvari najavljivalo kraj odmora osamaljenog tovarčića, odnosno početak njegova napornog dana, nošenja drva ili gospodara. Ponosni ‘Marokanci’ Dakle, tovari, mule i konji bili su radna snaga za nošenje tereta. Nerijetko su držani u lošim uvjetima, a bilo je slučajeva da su pred kraj života služili i kao hrana.

Mnogi su se ljudi nad tim zgražali, osobito stranci, koji se i dan danas znaju požaliti udruzi “Eco Hvar” zbog maltretiranja tih životinja. Naravno, nakon toga bi uslijedile obavijesti nadležnom komunalnom redaru, veterinarima i inspektorima, što je nedavno rezultiralo sasvim konkretnom pomoći jednom jadnom tovaru, koji je bio u jako lošem zdravstvenom stanju. Sada se on, na svu sreću, dobro oporavlja.

Ništa njima ne fali. Foto: Vivian Grisogono

- Jana iz Dola je na najbolji mogući način pokazala kako treba poštovati tovare i konje. Ta dama jednostavno želi proširiti svijest o važnosti čuvanja prirode i životinja, a i Doljani koje žargonski nazivaju “Marokancima” ponosni su što njihovo selo postaje primjerom pravog (kulturnog) ponašanja prema tim čovjekovim četveronožnim pratiteljima. Oni su sada zapravo postali amblem njihova mjesta, a mnogi ljudi, što stranci, što mještani, Jani napokon pomažu u ostvarenju njezine životne misije. Ova žena se zbog svega navedenog nastavlja brinuti o životinjama i vjeruje da će već uskoro stvoriti uvjete za njihovo spašavanje u budućnosti - zaključila je Nada Kozulić, potpredsjednica udruge “Eco Hvar”.

  • Senior climate figures welcome move after Conservative government largely left the role to junior ministers

    Ed Miliband is to take personal control of the UK’s negotiations at vital international climate talks, in stark contrast to his Tory predecessors.

    The energy security and net zero secretary will attend Cop29, this year’s UN climate summit, in Azerbaijan this November to head the UK’s delegation and meet political leaders from around the world.

  • Electric vehicles are ‘batteries on wheels’ that can put energy back into the National Grid when solar panels and windfarms do not provide much power

    Electric cars make some people afraid of the dark. While the batteries produce much less carbon, they require much more electricity to run. This has prompted ominous warnings that Great Britain and other wealthy countries set on banning new petrol and diesel cars risk plunging their populations into darkness.

    In recent months British net zero-sceptical newspapers have warned that the shift to EVs would “risk overwhelming the grid, and threaten catastrophic blackouts” when intermittent sun and wind fail to provide the necessary power. Another article claimed: “It won’t take an enemy power to put us all in the dark – just energy customers doing normal things on a normal winter’s evening.”

  • Site in Pembrokeshire currently grazed by sheep will be planted with a range of species and reconnect to Celtic past

    A lost piece of Celtic rainforest in the far south-west of Wales is to be restored to its ancient glory, weaving around standing stones and an abandoned, tumbling-down farmhouse with a waterwheel.

    The 59-hectare (146-acre) site in Pembrokeshire will be planted with species such as oak, small-leaf lime and wild service (Sorbus torminalis) and should support an abundance of mosses, liverworts, lichens and ferns as well as providing a home for animals and other plant life.

  • Tess, a 40-year-old female at Houston zoo, has been given a trial mRNA vaccine to help combat the virus, a leading killer of calves in captivity

    An Asian elephant at Houston zoo in the US has received the first mRNA vaccine against herpes, which is the leading killer of Asian elephants calves in captivity.

    Tess, a 40-year-old Asian elephant, was injected with the trial vaccine at the Texas zoo in June, after a spate of deaths in juveniles in zoos around the world from the elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus (EEHV).

  • Ravenscraig, North Lanarkshire: A place once of coke ovens and cooling towers is now enlivened with orchids and stonecrop, and swards of grasses

    I’m walking through Ravenscraig, once the site of the largest steelworks in Europe, which was closed and demolished more than 30 years ago. While there has been some redevelopment on its fringes, the bulk of the site has been left. The skylarks that soar upwards to become nothing but song will look down on the circles where once were cooling towers and gas towers, the rectangular templates of the buildings, strip mills and coke ovens, and roads leading to them, edges now softened and fringed with birch and willow.

    From a distance, the oxeye daisies intermingling with the lush grasses look like a smattering of snow; close up, thick swards of grass are peppered with St John’s wort, yellow rattle, tufted and yellow vetch, and red clover – little pings of colour amid the subtle pinks, purples and greens of the grasses.

  • Ed Miliband sets new rules on solar panels and approves three giant solar farms as Labour seeks to end years of Tory inaction

    Keir Starmer’s Labour government unveils plans for a “rooftop revolution” today that will see millions more homes fitted with solar panels in order to bring down domestic energy bills and tackle the climate crisis.

    The energy secretary, Ed Miliband, also took the hugely controversial decision this weekend to approve three massive solar farms in the east of England that had been blocked by Tory ministers.

  • It’s not entirely clear if fox numbers are on the rise in urban areas, but research shows they are learning to avoid hazards such as dogs and poisonous baits

    Alex Abbey’s security camera captured something moving through an alley behind his home in Sydney’s eastern suburbs a few weeks ago. When he watched the 2am footage the next day, he was surprised to see a red fox on the screen.

    “It’s unusual. It’s the first time I have seen one in Potts Point,” he says.

  • Initiative aims to coax visitors and local people into air-conditioned venues during sweltering summer afternoons

    A little after 3pm on a weekday afternoon, the footsteps and voices that echoed along the hallowed halls of the Prado were silenced by a series of percussive detonations that could have been mistaken for an indoor fireworks display.

    The source of the disruption, however, was not a vandal or a protester. Watched over by the eight muses for whom the Madrid museum’s Sala de las Musas is named, a tall, famous and angular flamenco dancer called El Yiyo was clicking, clapping, stomping and pirouetting before a rapt, grateful and slightly bemused audience. A few feet away sat the renowned guitarist Rafael Andújar, who had ambled into the sala a few moments earlier, taken his seat and begun to fill the air with notes.

  • A British geneticist scoured the globe for diverse grains in the 1920s. His research could be vital as the climate changes

    A hundred years ago, the plant scientist Arthur Watkins launched a remarkable project. He began collecting samples of wheat from all over the globe, nagging consuls and business agents across the British empire and beyond to supply him with grain from local markets.

    His persistence was exceptional and, a century later, it is about to reap dramatic results. A UK-Chinese collaboration has sequenced the DNA of all the 827 kinds of wheat, assembled by Watkins, that have been nurtured at the John Innes Centre near Norwich for most of the past century.

  • Such schemes have their critics but the technology, which has been known for a century, could help many nations reach net zero

    Snowy Hydro’s beleaguered tunnel boring machine, Florence, seems to be regularly stuck between soft rock and a hard place.

    But that has not deterred enthusiasts for pumped hydro as a key part of Australia’s transition off fossil fuels.
