The buyer took to the social media platform Facebook to relate the confounding online shopping experience.
Sutirtha Das from Kolkata was surprised when he found that Amazon had sent him a totally different product than what he had ordered. Although the invoice mentioned Karl Marx's The Communist Manifesto, all he got was an abridged version of Bhagavad Gita.
He also shared a post.
"After I placed an order for the Communist Manifesto, I received a message that the booking has been confirmed. Later, when I was in office, I was notified that the ordered book has been delivered. When I went home, I found out that my 'Communist Manifesto' has become an English copy of 'Bhagavad Gita'," Sutirtha wrote.
As one would imagine, comments flooded the Facebook post ranging from politics, consumer complaints to memes.
