In the latest show of humanitarian gesture, an air hostess provided iftar food after she was asked for a bottle of water. Journalist, Rifat Jawaid, ex BBC editor and ex-TV Today Managing Editor told that flying during Ramadan, he went up to the air hostess of the plane to ask for a bottle of water. But Manjula, the air hostess on duty, returned with not only water but also iftar food. The gesture which restores faith in humanity.
Rifat took to his official Twitter account to share the story. He wrote, ” 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?” Manjula 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.” Of course I didn’t need more. They were more than adequate for me. What was the most satisfying was Manjula’s heartwarming gesture.”
