Jeff Bezos, in India on a three-day visit, showed off his kite-flying skills in an Instagram post. "Any day is a good day when you get to fly a kite," wrote the Amazon CEO, with the hashtag #thankyou India.
In a purple kurta, Jeff Bezos is seen wading into a group of children flying kites in Delhi. A boy hands him a kite and instructs him on how to get it soaring.
"Have you flown a kite in your life," a young girl asks.
"I have flown kites when I was a kid," Mr Bezos replied. "Haven't flown a kite in a long time, it brings back memories..."
Another child asked whether he was missing it.
"I am," he said, handing the kite back to the boy.
"Alright! Whoo! My kite-flying instructors. Thank you, you are excellent teachers," said the Amazon boss, high-fiving each child.
Mr Bezos, who arrived last evening in New Delhi, will attend a company event in the city and is also likely to meet senior government officials.
He is expected to have a fireside chat with Amazon India chief Amit Agarwal. Yesterday, he paid his respects at Mahatma Gandhi's memorial in Rajghat and was seen in a white kurta and a rust-colored Indian vest.
