"Believe me, like every writer out there, I am delighted when I find that other writers have found my work good enough to use in their own writing.
Only, it would be nice if they acknowledge what they use."
I had a very similar experience last Sunday. I was reading an article in the 'Open Page' of The Hindu and found several portions very familiar. Then it struck me that the 'familiar paras' had been lifted from a blogpost that I had published 3 years back.
I now have clear evidence that my writing is good enough for publication in The Hindu.
