Here Is What Made Shashi Tharoor Openly Slam Amazon And Urge People To Use Flipkart Instead

Published on 27 February, 2018 at 1:36 pm By

E-commerce giants Amazon and Flipkart are giving each other tough competition to each other, in order to grab a larger pie of India’s online retail market. They keep coming up with attractive offers, discounts and exclusives to lure each other’s customers. Hence, one can never predict about which item will be available for the best price on which of the two platforms. So most people end up comparing the two and going with the one offering the best deal for the particular item they want to buy.

But there is one person who has publicly taken sides with one of the e-commerce giants. And he is someone who is followed by 6.5 million people on Twitter alone. So it is quite obvious that his opinion matters to a lot of people, including the two sellers as well.

 

 

Recently, in a tweet, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor openly slammed Amazon and asked his fans and followers to buy his books ‘An Era Of Darkness’ and ‘Why I Am A Hindu’ from Flipkart and not Amazon. He wrote that Amazon has sold pirated copies of his books “repeatedly and across the country” and called them “utterly shameless”.

Not only this, he also threatened on taking the legal way by tagging Aleph Book Co., the publisher of his books and asking them to begin the process of prosecution against Amazon. Take a look at his tweet below:

 

His tweet made Twitter users come up with different responses. Here are a few replies to his tweet:

 

 

 



 

 

 

 

 

 

Shashi Tharoor’s outrage is quite understandable since an author is the most hurt when pirated copies of his writing are being bought and sold because the process end up with the writer being deprived of the royalty on their work. However, this does not lead to any loss for the sellers, which in this case are Amazon and its selling partners. But being quoted in bad words by a popular figure like Tharoor could mean a huge loss to them as it affected their goodwill. Hence, Amazon too responded to his tweet, perhaps privately.

 

 

After this, Shashi Tharoor came up with another tweet saying Amazon has pledged to resolve the problem. Here is the tweet:

Stopping the sales of pirated books could be a tough job for Amazon but since it is an e-commerce giant with huge brand value, we must give it a chance for correcting its mistake. Don’t you think so?
