Indian-American Michelin-star chef, Vikas Khanna is one of the most popular and loved culinary celebrities. He has created countless meals but there's always one meal that will forever hold a special place in his heart- the one he shared with a Muslim family, who saved his life. For their noble deed, Khanna has fasted for one day every year during Ramadan, for over two decades to honour that family.
Vikas took to a Facebook post to explain what happened. He wrote, “#RamadanMubarak to all. ...I was training in the kitchen of SeaRock Sheraton, Mumbai in 1992 December when riots broke and whole city was under fire. We were stuck in the hotel for days. Iqbal Khan and Wasim Bhai (Trainee Chef and a waiter, whom I lost touch with forever) and their families sheltered me and nurtured me during this time. Since that year, I fast for 1 day during the Holy Month to thank them and keep them in my prayers….”
On Monday, the chef took to his Twitter account to post that after all these years he had finally been reunited with that family.
Well, isn't this just heartwarming? Stay tuned for more updates.
