Read the full text of the memo he sent to employees:

Dear Future Group family,
Over the last few weeks, I have received numerous letters, phone calls and messages expressing your support, anxiety and queries on the various legal steps being taken by Amazon.

India as a nation, and we at Future, have consistently been known for immense capabilities, vision and hard work. India has been the target of many rulers and empires and history is proof of it. As a nation, we have come a long way from the days of the British Raj to becoming a Republic since 1950. We at Future Group have been immensely inspired by the Republic and have worked relentlessly for the customers and the entire ecosystem of employees, vendors, investors and the nation at large. We have strongly believed that we can through our work help India regain the title of the ‘Sone Ki Chidiya.’
