We Indians boast of unity in diversity but often the varying religious ideologies are pitted against each other. The results are not pleasing and have led to cases of riots and violence in the past. So when there are examples of prevalent unity among the people, it is a good feeling of humanity restored. Something like this was experienced by a Muslim flier named Rifat Jawaid who was aboard an Air India flight. Observing the month of Ramadan, he wanted to break his fast at Iftar time. But as he was flying during that time, he asked the air hostess for a bottle of water. The air hostess returned with a Iftar meal for him.

Journalist Rifat Jawaid was flying from Gorakhpur to Delhi when he experienced the sweet gesture from Air India. He asked for a bottle of water and got one. But he asked for another, when the air hostess asked him to go back to his seat. To his surprise, she returned with a meal of two sandwiches and said, "please don't hesitate to ask for more." He took to Twitter to share the incidence and needless to say people are filled with all the love and faith in humanity.

The gesture was small but it leaves an impact on not just Rifat Jawaid but also others. In times when we still hear of communal violence, it is such instances that act as a ray of unity among all commoners.
