Amazon boss pays homage to Gandhi


The Amazon CEO, Mr. Jeff Bezos, visited the memorial to Mahatma Gandhi in Delhi after he landed in India on Tuesday and posted a video where he is seen in a white kurta and an orange half-jacket, carrying a colourful wreath of flowers on the lawns of the memorial at Raj Ghat.

After placing the flowers, he folds his hands to pray before walking away. 'Just landed in India and spent a beautiful afternoon paying my respects to someone who truly changed the world. 'Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.' - Mahatma Gandhi,' Mr Bezos tweeted. He also posted the video along with the same message on Instagram.

The e-tailer giant's chief executive's visit to India comes at a time when the country's anti-trust body Competition Commission of India said it is looking into alleged unfair practices by Amazon and Walmart's Flipkart.

These e-commerce firms should not offer steep discounts, must disclose discounting policies and ensure they do not drive brick-and-mortar rivals out of business, the CCI chairman, Mr. Ashok Kumar Gupta has said.
