there are no alternatives for this,you have to wait or go to some nursery you can have compost from them,as sajid have mentioned it is called "patoon ki khad" ask nursery men to give you some.
and remember one rule,
no hurry in bonsai its time consuming hobby you have to wait years to have a good piece,so my advice will be to start making compost ,meanwhile get it from somewhere to use,
thanks

Compost is now also available at shops which sell gardening supplies. I bought few packets this year to plant my bonsai.
