Her tweet was accompanied by a photograph of the birthday girl, and was tagged to the twitter handle of Rahul Gandhi.

Syed Nasir Khursheed from Karnataka, chief coordinator AIOCC, congratulated Rahul Gandhi on becoming the new Congress president and wished well for the future of India's oldest political party. And a recent Twitter exchange between him and the woman's granddaughter has gone viral.

Twitter user Dipali Sikand tweeted: "Today my grandmother turned 107". I asked her why?

To this, Rahul responded: Dear Dipali, Please wish your lovely grandmother a very happy birthday and a merry Xmas. He wished the "beautiful" grandmother a happy birthday and a merry Christmas.

The Congress president wrote on Twitter, "Dear Dipali, Please wish your lovely grandmother a very happy birthday and a merry Xmas".

After seeing this post, Gandhi sent his virtual "hug" to the old woman and also wished her happy birthday and conveyed his regards too.

Later in the evening, Sikand took to Twitter and said that Rahul had called the girl's grandmother and wished her "personally".

Mr Gandhi has been a relatively new entrant to Twitter compared to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and a section of his ministers.

But it was Rahul's personal and warm tweet addressed to Dipali and her grandmother which his followers feel is the best message they read on Christmas.
