We had an untoward incident on trak.in, which was actually quite dis-heartening – One of our very new authors wrote an article which was very similar to one published on Hindustan Times, and we were blamed from plagiarism. After I looked at both the articles, I could make out that although it was not an exact copy, the contents and presentation was quite similar and so I decided to take down the post and also tendered an apology to the original Author.
Although, there was no need for me to put it out here, I am doing so as I wanted to get a point very clear - We take serious view of plagiarism and is not tolerated on trak.in. And yes, the new author is now not associated with trak.in.
With that out of the way, here are buzzing articles of last week.
