Plagiarism

Kerala-base media watchdog, opening part of Poorie's Letter from Editor in southern edition of magazine reads: Jackie Chan is highest-pay actor in Asia, and that makes sense. Besides producing, directing, and starring in his own action movies since 1980, he's earned in Hollywood with blockbusters like Rush Hour and Karate Kid. But No. 2 spot goes to someone who make any sense at all. Second-highest-pay Actor In Asia Is Balding, Middle-age Man With Paunch, Hailing From Indian State Of Tamil Nadu And Sporting Kind Of Moustache That Went Out Of Style In 1986. This is Rajinikanth, and he no mere actorhe. Is force of nature. If tiger had sex with tornado and then their tiger-nado baby get married to earthquake, their offspring would be Rajinikanth. Or, as his films are contractually obligated credit him, superstar Rajinikanth! India Today is expected to publish apology in next issue of magazine. Magazine was also quick to launch damage control when website called Mumbai Boss published story on plagiarism row. Soon after story on Purie's 'lifted' editorial was post, India Today Corporate Communications left comment on story page with apology. There was unfortunate incident with Letter from Editor in southern edition of India Today's last issue. This was mistake. We are printing apology for IT in southern edition. Here is preview for your information. 'Jet lag is clearly injurious to health of journalism. I was in America, and still bit bleary-eyed and sleep-deprive when we took unusual decision: to split cover. This is jargon for changing covers for some editions; so while content of magazine remains same worldwide, cover that go to our readers in South India had display phenomenal Rajinikanth, while our other readers saw Omar Abdullah on cover. This meant writing versions of 'Letter from Editor'. Not being acknowledge on delightful southern superstar, I asked Delhi for some inputs. Unfortunately, couple of sentences lifted from article were sent to me. Excuse Is Not Explanation. So, without any mea culpa.
