Several people prefer to refrain from specific meals. They follow a vegetarian diet during a festive period of Navratri as a sign of purity. Fasting is a symbol of devotion to the deity. Along with beautiful pandals, colourful idols, and garba night, this is a major feature of Navratri.
IPS Officer Arun Bothra, who was fasting for Navratri, also skipped refreshments on his IndiGo flight. However, a cabin crew member named Purvi provided him a vrat-friendly (fasting) items such as sabudana chips, til tikki, and tea. When IPS Bothra offered to pay for the dinner, she politely declined and stated that she, too, was fasting.
IPS Bothra posted on Twitter as said,
Mother Divine takes care of you in different forms. Today she came as Purvi, an @IndiGo6E crew member.
As I didn’t take snacks due to #Navratri fasting she returned with Sabudana Chips, Til Chikki & tea. When I asked how much to pay, she said- ‘No money sir. I am also fasting.’ pic.twitter.com/f4Av5oOZoF

“Mother Divine looks after you in various ways. She appeared today as Purvi, a member of the @IndiGo6E crew. She returned with Sabudana Chips, Til Chikki, and tea because I didn’t bring snacks owing to #Navratri fasting. When I asked how much I should pay, she said, “No money, sir.”

That's such an amazing gesture by Purvi. Give her a pat on the back @IndiGo6E

Going by the price of the sabudana chips, it seems she shared her personal tiffin not from the airlines pantry…salute to Purvi for being such a wonderful person…
