This Streetwear Fit piece is a little different from the rest that I do. Because it features 2 people who have played important roles in my life the last 7 to 8 years. They have influenced my life and are the reason I am, the person I am, today.
You can follow Sheral on Instagram here.
Sheral and I are wearing the Palace Triferg Full Sleeved Tee and twinning in Ultraboost sneakers. Scratch wears an NY bandana bought for him by uncle Sahil when he visited America a couple of years ago.
Scratch came into my life about a year before Sheral did. Growing up, I had a stray mixed dachshund pupper and his name was Brutus. I loved him to bits and he was an absolutely adorable and disciplined guy. I think he took after the “me” that I was, back then. He grew old and died and I could not be around him during his last days which made me break down and cry more than once. When I moved to Bombay, I decided to get me Scratch. From where I come, dogs are meant to be tied up the entire day and are expected to guard the house and all that. And not knowing any better, that is how I kept Scratch.
He’d be tied the entire day except when it was walking time.
That was until he fell severely ill and every night I would carry him to my bed not knowing if he would survive the night. Once he recovered, Scratch got used to leashless life and sleeping next to humans. It is the only way now. And I guess at times we need some rough times to appreciate the smaller joys of life.
Sheral has always stood by me, through the lows and lows. Lol because I seldom have any highs. And that is why I will always appreciate her for the person that she is. Ever giving, never asking. If only I had half the heart she possesses, I would be a better man.
It has been about 11 months since I left Scratch behind with his mommy Sheral. I miss him and have only been able to make 2 trips back to Bangalore to spend time with him. Here’s hoping 2019 is kinder with finances and long weekends to spend time with people who matter.
I know, I uploaded these half a year later.
But I guess my recent trip to Bangalore that coincided with Scratch having to be hospitalized and on drips made me appreciate these images more than I otherwise would.
