We are a country of diverse religions and still our people exist in perfect harmony with each other. This is what makes India a beautiful country and a recent incident that took place in an Air India flight is a testimony to this.
Rifat Jawaid, a Muslim flier, shared the incident on Twitter.
He was observing Ramzan fast and asked the air hostess for drinking water for Iftar.
On my way back to Delhi in @airindiain Alliance from Gorakhpur: Iftar time was nearing so I walked up to cabin crew member Manjula, asked for some water. She gave me a small bottle. I asked, “can I pls have 1 more bottle since I’m fasting?”— Rifat Jawaid (@RifatJawaid) May 18, 2019
Manjula replied, “why did you... pic.twitter.com/QaMoAR5CqC
What happened next will melt your heart. The air hostess didn't only give him water bottle, but also served him the available meal.
..leave your seat?You pls return to your seat.” Minutes later she arrived with two sandwiches and said, “please don’t hesitate to ask for more.”— Rifat Jawaid (@RifatJawaid) May 18, 2019
Of course I didn’t need more. They were more than adequate for me. What was the most satisfying was Manjula’s heartwarming gesture. pic.twitter.com/DeXhvMnxwJ
People on the internet were touched by this heartwarming incident.
We have plenty of people like #Manjula around. This is our real culture. We must fight together to preserve our culture.— Ansar (@AbulAnsar) May 19, 2019
Air India has always been like that. It’s staffed by common folks who have a immense sense of warmth and hospitality. Most important they have always been the airline with empathy. Way to go @airindian— Tandav (@pushkarbhat) May 19, 2019
