“Odisha Sahitya Academy Award” for a Plagiarized Book-“Nirbana”

January 12, 2012 at 10:14 am Leave a comment

Corruption, favoritism and stupidity are rampant in “Odisha Sahitya Academy”. On 2008 it had awarded a ‘plagiarized book’-Nirbana (see the following report from the Sambad). The credibility of “Odisha Sahitya Academy” is at stake. How can the selection committee select a book which is completely plagiarized?  People should keep in mind that because of internet plagiarism is very common as resources are available within a click.

Sometimes I also get a feeling that the articles published in Odia news paper are mostly copied from English news paper. Such thefts are creating bad precedents. I wish a there should be a watch dog to highlight such things like these ones:
