I'm guessing that most of you would have heard about the plagiarism scandal involving Chennai born Harvard sophomore Kaavya Viswanathan. If you haven't, then you must not have been watching NDTV 24x7, which makes it a point to put 'Kaavya Cheated' in big, bold letters quite frequently at the bottom of the screen in their news bar. Very subtle. Anyway, there appears to be at least 40 instances of plagiarism in this book of 300 pages. That's a lot by any standard and when I heard that her publishers were pulling out the book from the shelves, I got a weird idea (not necessarily a smart one, I might add). I decided to buy this book now so that 10 years down the road I could like sell it on eBay for 3 times its current market value if not more. I mean, nothing sells like a plagiarised book.
So I went to Landmark in
P.S: My 100th post! A nice moment. As I always say, “Life isn't a matter of milestones, but of moments.” Ok fine, I didn’t say it. I may have just internalized Ms. Rose Kennedy’s words ; )
