    When I think of India, I think of all the technology that's built out of here. Whether it’s the Micron App, or the ML team that powers the Q&A section on Detail Pages or the team that’s working on Alexa’s skills India has a major role in Amazon’s business all over the world.

    What are your impressions of the Community centres?
    This is really impressive – kids playing and learning, there’s a library, there’s vocational training – opportunities that builds skills leading to a job. This is the kind of impact that a company like Amazon can have all over the world.

    What do you think of the selfie culture?
    This is a beautiful audience and a beautiful audience deserves pictures to commemorate it. I have been surprised of how many selfies have been requested of me and those that I have participated in the last one week – probably more than my whole life. So clearly selfies are important.
