      Today is Friday, TGIF as the younger generation calls it.

      Today, i woke up as a new person, i have a new name, i am Nomad, I lost my ".007" status. At last i was happy that i don't have to keep saving the world.

      When i woke up this morning, i also looked at my wife, thinking she might have also changed !!!

      but no luck,

      she was the same what she was yesterday, or the day before.

      yes indeed i am no longer ".007", i have the same girl with me.

      but name change needed a celebration, so thought of taking all of you on a quick virtual drive to celebrate the moments.

      some moments of togetherness.

      You know what ?

      You know what ?, asked my wife one day as i return from my work.

      It was begining of feb 2012, and we had just returned from our Chettinadu-Rameshwaram-Dhanushkodi-Madurai drive.

      The question made me think !

      i look at her with a question mark on my face.

      You know Rahul is coming ?,

      Who Rahul Dravid ?, I asked

      Nooo !, My brother from Norway, He is visiting India after almost 10+ years.

      She went on ... Do you remember him ?, he had attended our wedding,

      Ofcourse, how i can forget my Brother-In-Law. He is wife's cousin brother, younger one.

      Ofcourse now, he has completed Advanced Doctorate in Physics and working as a Research Physicist in one of the most advanced research labs in Europe.

      When ?, I asked.

      Next week, his Granny, mother's mother is very old, He is coming to see her, he will be accompanied by his mother, I have invited him to our home. he has agreed to come and stay over for 2 days with us.

      Fantastic, I said, what are your plans.

      He has not seen much of India, can we take them out some where ?, asked my wife

      Ask him what are his preferences, based on that we can take them around.

      Eventually after several facebook exchanges, and telephone calls between the brother and sister, i learnt that the program for 2 days is finalized.

      Day 1: Go out on a drive and return home by night
      Day 2: Go around Bangalore and also visit one more relative together.

      So, i was given daily update on "Where Rahul is today ?", "What Rahul might be doing today ?"

      Ofcourse, i could sense the excitement of being together with one's kid brother,

      "what if he is no longer a kid ?, I am his elder sister", she said,

      then i heard lots of anecdotes about Rahul and "how the world was beautiful when we were kids !"

      At last that friday evening arrived,

      When i returned home, i could sense everything has changed, yes, her bother will be coming home tomorrow!!

      "Rahul has arrived this afternoon in Bangalore, They are put up with a friend of his mother."

      She continued, "what time we can pick them up tomorrow ?", 7 AM ?

      She continued, if it is 7 AM, we need to get up early, get ready and leave home by 6:30 AM, is it okay ?

      I nodded, Yes.

      I know, excitement kept some one awake for long time that night !!

      The Morning, ofcourse it has to be good

      "Good Morning !!!, wake up, it is already 5:45 AM, i am almost ready. Daughter has also woken up just now", She said

      hmmm...give me 5 minutes...ok ?, i turned on my stomach, took the pillow on my head and went back to do what i did the best !.

      ...
      ...

      Hey !!, Wake up, it is already 6 AM, Daughter is also getting ready now, don't be lazy today !!

      She continued, You know these europeans are very prompt, we need to be there sharp at 7 AM !!!, Get up fast, else will be late !!!

      Oh, He is an Indian, dear !!, Not European, I tried to protest, But it was received with some stare and silence

      after another few minutes, i left the bed, quickly completed the chores and got ready by 6:30 AM.


      Come on, let go, i said, holding my car keys

      Wait, let be pick up some snacks, juice, water etc, I don't know whether we will get some good juice and water on the way !!!

      She was very much concerned that her brother will have a health issue due to drinking water some where around Bangalore !!!

      Come on, I said, we can buy bottled watter if need, there is a CCD on the way, don't worry, I will take care of you brother,

      So by the time we got into the car it was 6:45 AM,

      We quickly got into the car and reached address @ RT nagar, it was 7 AM sharp,

      that was some quickest 15 minutes drive i did inside Bangalore, You know, we can not be late to meet my brother in law.

      So at last, there he was !!!
