New Delhi: E-commerce major Amazon's global CEO Jeff Bezos, who is visiting India, showed off his kite-flying skills on the occasion of Makar Sankranti here on Wednesday.

Bezos released a video of him dressed in a purple kurta, flying kites with kids. "Any day is a good day when you get to fly a kite. #ThankYouIndia," he captioned the video released on Instagram.

Bezos also shared one of his childhood memories with the children. It all started when a girl asked Bezos, "Have you flown a kite in your life?"

"I have flown kites when I was a kid," 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," Bezos replied.
