Rick Warren rightly said, Humility is not thinking less about yourself, it is thinking about yourself less. This has been demonstrated by Tata and the Ambanis time and again, their simple gestures show that no matter how high you fly, your feet should firmly be on the ground. Such an act was recently observed by Rahul Bhatia, Indigo’s Managing Director.
A picture of him, travelling in an IndiGo flight from Bangalore to Delhi, where he is seen enjoying Parle G biscuit dipped in tea has gone viral. The tea-and-biscuit snack which is almost a staple evening snack for most Indians, is simple yet tasty. The billionaire’s simplicity by consuming it, was captured by his fellow passenger and has gone viral on the Internet.
The picture was shared by a user named YP Rajesh. Tweeting the photo, he captions it “My fellow passenger on a @IndiGO6E BLR-DEL flight this week… Billionaire Rahul Bhatia, Promoter & MD, IndiGo, enjoying his Parle-G dipped in tea. Shows you don’t have to be Richard Branson or V Mallya to build a successful airline with 57% market share.”
The humble gesture of Rahul Bhatia has got tongues wagging online. The post has collected over 8,000 likes and more than 800 retweets. Here are few of the retweets that have gone viral :
It proves it is not always huge mansions or expensive clothes that catch the attention of the online community; sometimes a simple act of originality goes a long way!
