The parade celebrating the victory of the culturist Indian BJP political party, started with a bang – literally. A “bomb” firework about eight feet from me exploded. As embers went down my shirt they burned my upper right back. I call the BJP culturist because they hold to a variation of “Hindu Nationalism,” (which I’ll detail in another article). Celebrating this culturist victory in the streets of India was exhilarating. If I have a scar from celebrating the BJP political victory, I’ll wear it proudly.
