The Big Billion Day-saster: A Flipkart Chutzpah!

Lets just all collectively agree that we all were there at the virtual gates of the almighty, only to be greeted by ‘Out of Stock’ & ‘Sold out’ at the first site.

As if the fact that it was a Monday after a long weekend wasn't daunting enough, we were all taken for a roller coaster ride by flipkart for the things that we could have bought for the fraction of a cost. To buy or not to buy, that wasn't the question at all.

It was a big day for flipkart which was spot on with respect to it’s target for sales but at what cost? Here is a timeline based on public reactions across various social media platforms as to what all went wrong during the whole day.
