  14. Hi Arpit,
    Do you realise that your friend, SAG, to whom you awarded the “Budding Blogger” award [] is a regular plagariser.

    She’s copied 2 posts verbatim.

    is a copy of observations-about-some-people-in-my.html


    And this is the original post:

    She’s even copied them VERBATIM!!!!
    And she’s had the gall to accept compliements for those posts!!!! And she’s blocking ALL the comments that Kiran and her friends have been sending her asking her to remove the post – or atleast acknowledge the author.

    So writing in to you since you’re the one who ‘inspired’ her to blog. please talk some sense into her!!!!!

  15. no offense, but SAG, one of the bloggers you awarded the budding blogger award for her zeal of writing is making waves in the blog world by plagiarising posts, not publishing the comments that alert her to it, and not taking down the post.
    since you are her well wisher, pls do her a favor by telling her to stop lifting other people’s posts or even better, shut shop altogether.

    Here’s the orig post

    Here’s her shameless copy-paste

  16. @ Kiran, D ,gooddaysunshine : firstly , welcome to the blog
    i have left a comment on kiran’s blog and i am too against plagiarism. hope it answers to all your comments and i have done the needful from my side as well.

  17. Arpit, why do you inspire people to blog when they can’t write a sentence to save their life? Please since you inspire SAG do us the honour of asking her to remove the posts which she has blatantly copied.

    The blogosphere is a small world for all such things to go unnoticed. And do not take any offence coz I am reallyyyyyyy upset that she chose a post which was so very personal to claim as her own.

  18. @ all : i have replied to kiran for all the comments. lastly, i have fulfilled my responsibility as a blogger. i can very well understand how you all must be feeling and having completed 1 yr in blogosphere i very well know what a close knit community it is and nothing goes unnoticed.

  19. Thanks Arpit! Good to know there are folks out there who will stand up for what’s right. Twas Sags badluck she chose my blog. Here’s to more milestones from you!

  20. I would like to offer a piece of advice to you. From now onwards, please be very careful and critical before choosing any blogger for any kind of award.

    Plagiarism is definitely a very important issue and all the bloggers need to understand its importance.

    • @Withering Willow: There’s no way he could have known. It could happen to you and me. He cant keep running plagiarism checks. Achche achche log posts chura lete hain 😦

      What we can do is to call their bluff when we discover it. Its importnant they apologise and take the post down. Its good that this one so well publicised that this woman deleted her complete blog out of shame.

  21. @ Arpit : Thank you so much for the award. I am sorry I should have accepted earlier but I have been so lazy and to be honest a bit busy as well! If you are ever in Chandigarh and I am here as well we can eat together πŸ™‚

  22. Happy B’day to u……………
    Happy B’day to u……………
    Happy B’day dear Arpit….
    Happy B’day to u…………..!!
