While there have been a lot of negative instances making headlines across the country since the start of Ramadan this year, few positive encounters are setting massive examples of how India is all about communal harmony. One of those heartwarming encounters occurred when Mumbai’s Priya Singh took an Uber ride from the airport.
Taking to LinkedIn, Priya shared a wholesome story of her encounter with an Uber driver on April 15. Ten minutes into her ride from the airport, Priya heard the Azaan playing on her driver’s mobile phone, and she could not stop her curiosity from asking him if he was performing iftar or not. Priya, understanding the driver’s situation, asked him if he wanted to pay namaaz right away.
On the back of her insistence, the cab was then parked on the roadside and Priya took the front seat to allow the driver to offer his prayers in the back seat. “We parked the car on the roadside to let him do his prayers in the back seat while I sit in the front seat,” she further wrote in her LinkedIn post.
She concluded her post by adding, “that’s the kind of India my parent taught me about”.
