Uber driver brings passenger home-cooked meal: "The generosity of communion holds us together"

A woman shared with her Uber driver that it had been a good while since she wasn’t in touch with her family. The heartwarming experience that followed convinced many people that kindness in action still exists and that there are no limits to goodwill when people connect to each other.

What are the details?

Lina was talking to her Uber driver on Monday night. She told him about her family in Sudan and that she wasn’t able to talk to them. The woman also mentioned that she missed Bengali food and that she felt cut off living in London with no communication from her loved ones, according to Sunnyskyz.

"Was chatting to my Uber driver last night on my way home about Bengali food, Sylhet, Sudan, how I can't get in touch with my family there, and how isolating it can be living in London," the woman wrote on Twitter.

That’s all it took for the Uber driver to set kindness in motion. As soon as he found out how his passenger was feeling, the driver made a stop at his house. It wasn’t planned, but he felt he needed to add something, to make his passenger feel there were still people who cared.

"He drove by his house mid-journey and asked his wife to fix me a curry plate,” the touched woman posted.

Lina refused his offer at first, but she eventually accepted the touching gesture after he insisted.

"He insisted despite my pleas because he lived close to me. I didn't have any food cooked in weeks and have been surviving on work canteen food, so today I had the best murgir lal jhol for lunch. It's the generosity of communion that holds us together. He even offered me rice as well, but I was like, no, please I have rice, this is too much,” she added about the wonderful experience.
