My Friend in India © Scott Morgan 2013
it’s an anniversary. an auspicious day.
8 months ago.today. i . left. the.hospital in chapel hill.
i wrote a. song. about chapel. hill.and. leaving, the usa.
i called my unkl marvin
in.atlanta. told him to contact sanjiv
tell him that we’re coming to india.
i would have like to have come the first time i had cancer
to have the operation i knew i needed in the high point hospital
but, i could not travel. this time i could travel.
had a call from india
it was sanjiv.
he said, don’t worry scott. i’ll take care of everything.
send me the biopsy report and all the oncology information and i’ll set
up an oncology appointment in new delhi where you can see a top doctor.
we left for LA, we saw family & friendz, and then for tokyo arriving in india nov 4th.
here’s a portrait requested by sanjiv of the 2 of us.
what an incredible friend he has been.
Scott doesn’t usually do portraits. Nor does he like being asked to do painting assignments. However, in this particular case he felt he couldn’t refuse. Sanjiv has been a tremendous support and loving friend to Scott and to me. We are both forever grateful to him for all he has done and continues to do. Hardly one day has gone by in 8 months that I have not received a phone call from Sanjiv. His level-headedness has helped keep me focused on getting the best care for Scott and helped navigate the Indian system. His humor has helped me and Scott through many a dark day. We love you, Sanjiv.
Two portraits Scott has done were created on this journey. One is Rohan Marley which was given to him in Mumbai.

The other portrait Scott did was of Aneel Verman of Sur La Mer who requested a portrait done while we were staying at Sur La Mer. Aneel a.k.a. Loonie rejected Scott’s initial finished portrait because he had neglected to put Aneel’s tattoo on his neck. With reluctance, Scott went back and added the tat later…
