Smoke filled the air so much so that it clouded one's vision for over a minute. Firecrackers cracked loudly, waking one rudely from a midday nap. Drums were beaten to different tunes, one every ten minutes. Men hung along the fringe of the road. A person was garlanded, a few others hung from somebody's arm. People milled about.
The victory parade walked in front of my house. After the results of the BBMP elections were announced today.
