Sometimes, it is the simplest things in life that bring the most pleasure. We all have a set of comfort foods that provide us solace in the darkest of hours. Whether it is a childhood-favourite candy or a dish that our mother used to make, there are countless examples that we can think of. One such simple and classic combination that quite a few people find comforting is Chai and Parle-G biscuit. Recently, we spotted IndiGo's MD Rahul Bhatia too savouring this delightful pairing. His picture has gone viral on Twitter. Take a look:

The picture was shared on Twitter by user @YPRajesh, where it received nearly 15k likes and hundreds of comments and retweets. "My fellow passenger on an Indigo BLR-DEL flight this week...

"Shows you don't have to be Richard Branson or V Mallya to build a successful airline with 57% market share," he concluded.
The comforting Parle-G biscuit has been a part of Indians' food culture since generations. Pairing it with Chai is popular not just because of its great taste, but also its minimal cost. So, when Twitter users saw that the IndiGo MD Rahul Bhatia too loved this wonderful combination of Parle-G with chai, they couldn't help but shower praises on him! "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication," wrote one user while another said, "This pack of #ParleG has aged well!"

Parle G is good as it contains glucose and gives u energy. I knew a Union Minister who used to eat mostly Parle G and Orange juice as he had no time for lunch— Rajat Trivedi (@rajattrivedi23) July 23, 2022
Everyone loves Parle-G :)— Devina Sengupta (@DevinaSengupta) July 22, 2022
Commendable austerity; he has brought along, his own packet of Parle-G when he could have had fancy airline cookies for the asking. ????????. https://t.co/pjKFxa7Hi4— Arun Prakash (@arunp2810) July 24, 2022
Parle-G has been extremely popular since a long time, but its popularity skyrocketed during the pandemic. In the lockdown period in 2020, Parle-G had broken all previous records for sales. The news received much media attention too.
