Mohan: Back in 2013, I was excited with the launch of Amazon.in website and my mother was even more excited about ordering items sitting at home. One afternoon, my mother and I were having lunch in a restaurant next to the Amazon office in Bangalore, India. During the lunch, my mother, out of excitement, mentioned “Mohan, one day you should work for this company. Look at the change they are bringing to the world, and this is one of the places where dreams turn into reality.” Now, I work for Amazon Web Services and there is nothing fulfilling than making my mother happy.
