In Heartwarming Gesture, Indian Railways Surprise Passenger With Iftaar

Unexpectedly, a man on Twitter recently recounted an anecdote highlighting the Indian Railways’ sensitivity and generosity, and it went viral. Shahnawaz Akhtar, a passenger on the Howrah Shatabdi, requested that his tea be served somewhat later than normal. What occurred next astounded the entire internet.

After receiving this request, the pantry employee inquired if Akhtar was requesting the tea later due to his roza. When Akhtar verified he was fasting, the employee surprised him by delivering him a complete iftar. “Thank you #IndianRailways for the #Iftar,” Akhtar said on Twitter beside a photo of the meal. Akhtar’s plate is piled high with fruits like grapes, bananas, and apples, as well as various other munchies. 

This gesture has moved users online, who have complimented both the Indian Railways and Akhtar. Here are some of the responses.
