He's been growing them since he was 16, inspired by a teacher who told him he would never appreciate how hard it was to lose a nail until he tried to grow them himself. OKAY SHRIDHAR, WE GET IT.

The nails are not without their complications. Shridhar has to turn every half hour or so in bed to make sure he doesn't crush his fingernails.
