Amazon Had A Lovely Surprise For 7-Year-Old Jedi From Delhi Who Wanted A Lightsaber


A school-going Jedi from Delhi is finally fully armed to restore galactic order after a delightful surprise from e-commerce giant Amazon.

After he watched The Force Awakens, the latest in the Star Wars series of film, 7-year-old Rudra wanted a lightsaber, the Jedi blade made of pure energy, for himself. His mother asked him to save up for one. There was only one problem. Rudra had managed to save Rs 1,006 -- all in coins.

Unsure whether Amazon would accept his coins in exchange for a lightsaber, Rudra wrote the company a letter. His mother, Banani Sarker Joshi posted the heartwarming story on Facebook.

To the utter surprise of the boy, Amazon sent the 7-year-old a lightsaber as a gift.

But it wasn't just a lightsaber that Rudra received. The company also sent him a lovely note.

"A long time ago in a galaxy far far away. There was a kid named Rudra, who was waiting to get a lightsabre so he can join the force to be a Jedi...He wrote a letter to the Amaz-empire to get the lightsabre. Yoda has seen that the kid is destined for great things and decided to give him the sabre so he could join the force," the note read.

There was a personalised message from Yoda too:

The force is clearly strong with Team Amazon.
