These moves have stunted the growth and traction of competitors Flipkart and Snapdeal.

Amid concerns from the LGBT community that it wasn™t representative enough, accolades rolled in, including Golden Globe and Emmy awards.Now, I was going to be an extra on the show, and Iâ€™d foolishly turned down the option to do it in the nude.
