The Shamshers Cant Imagine Life Without Sherkhan


Sherkhan looks down from the balcony, focussed only on the new entrant in their lane. Somebody, he barked away just last evening but who continues to be seen. He doesn’t like it. He doesn’t bark, but perhaps plans his next verbal volley when he confronts the silly intruder on his next walk.
He walks in to look for mom Sarika Shamsher. Thankfully she is exactly in the same place he left her – in the kitchen. “He is my shadow. He doesn’t leave me alone for a minute,”
smiles Sarika, a teacher at Sapling, a pre-school, of the youngest member in her family.
And then its time for dad Mohan Shamsher, AVP- recruitment, Techmahindra, to come home. Sherkhan is at the door with his big floppy ears, wagging his tail, his face lights up and we know Mohan is back.

Her month old puppy who had followed mom into traffic too got hit. Pratha picked both up took them to a veterinarian where the mother was put down. The pup had no place to go so she joined Pratha’s family.
“With her broken bones, she was a very weak little girl. We went from specialist to specialist to get little Cookie back on her feet. About two months old now, she is the brat of the pack that includes two cocker spaniels – Buddy and Angel,” says Toral, an artist and former special needs educator, who divides her time between Mumbai and Pune.

Toral’s son Yash and Buddy share a special bond. “When Yash stayed in India, Buddy wouldn’t eat when Yash was unwell. They were so close. Yash is now in Australia with his lovely wife Nupur. Buddy does a double flip every time that Yash comes home on holiday. Fond of Pratha too, the three are at the door till she comes,” says Toral.

For the Narang family, adopting Cookie was a very easy decision. “The looks don’t matter, the dog does. Anybody can adopt or buy a good looking animal but to take care of an animal who is in need, is not everybody’s cup of tea,” she sums up. Read more…
