I have a previous article on this topic at Part I.
Today, I woke up to get forwarded an article written by one A. Muthukrishnan on Telangana. The article was published on Counter Currents and Brave New India. And it was reposted at least on three other sites.
While I was reading it I immediately started to realize that it was the exact piece that I wrote on Telangana few years ago. It was written on 13 December 2009 and was titled ‘Case for Telangana’. It was 100% cut-and-paste job. He added only one line at the bottom:
This year in June the state of Andra Pradesh and Telengana will be a reality.
And it has two spelling mistakes already. Andhra is spelled as ‘Andra’ and Telangana is spelled as ‘Telengana’.
It is unfortunate that Counter Current and Brave New India published this article without even making a cursory search. The author seems to be a person of well-established background. These two blogs introduce him as:
A.Muthukrishnan is a writer, traveler and activist who resides in Madurai, Tamilnadu
I have written to both these sites giving reference to my article plus the links to this article published elsewhere.
I think I have to wait and see what they would do.
