Concert for George

One of the advantages of having friends who become relatives is that you usually know a lot about each other.

Such is the case of my wife’s younger brother-in-law, Vibhu Srinivasan who was a friend long before he married my sister-in-law. From the kid growing up next door, through attending the same engineering college I went to, through becoming part of the family – Vibhu had a lot of time to learn about the things that I enjoy.

So should I have been surprised when he landed today from Seattle, carrying with him the “Concert for George” DVD Set? Without my having asked for it, but having desperately wanted it?

Needless to say, I am very very happy.

And having just finished seeing the concert DVD, I must admit that I have a seriously big lump in my throat.
