Amazon service in India: From a bibliophiles perspective

When Amazon was about to launch in India I was very excited. Earlier I had bought stuff from Flipkart and was waiting for the international e-commerce giant to come to India. Usually I buy books and lot of them. They have extensive catalogue of books and a superb search mechanism.

Pros

Great collection of books. You can read reviews of books which are on amazon.com as well to get a hang of what international audience thinks. Nice mobile app and speedy website. Brilliant customer support as of now. You tweet them /give them a call they are prompt to reply.Educated customer representatives are there. Once I ordered nexus tablet 2012.

So I called their support staff, they were prompt to reply and refunded INR 800 to me. No strings attached, it was that simple. …

I went there to meet him, he introduced me to a programmer, said just study a url you will be given and then come back on joining as it will be your first assignment. I never knew that this innocent looking guy will rock the houseboat upside down for me in the coming future and that’s how it all started.
