When it comes to hospitality, Indians know how to win hearts, and make a place. Irrespective of any caste and creed, we love to serve. India teaches the dynamics of the host-guest relationship to the world.
Recently, an incident took place in Air India alliance flight which has shown a gesture of hospitality.
Former BBC editor, Rifat Jawaid, was flying to Delhi. Since Ramadan is around the corner, the journalist was fasting and had to have his iftar meal. As he was flying during the evening, he went up to the Air Hostess and asked for a bottle of water. But the gesture by the Crew member won the hearts.
..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
The Air Hostess, instead of giving him the bottle, asked him to return to his seat and minutes later, came with a meal. The Journalist took to Twitter to share the story. He wrote,
“On my way back to Delhi in Air India 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?”
The Air hostess replied,
“why did you 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.”
This kind gesture by the crew member has won our hearts and netizens are showering their love on her.
