We are proud of such things if only our work is acknowledged

The following is the Release of a leading news agency in India. In most working parts, every word I wrote in my report on India winning the Kazan has been used. I won't call it plagiarism because I want this site should act as newsmen's resource, what I of course would appreciate is acknowledgment whatever form they prefer to.

Indian women win hockey Champions Challenge II
June 28th, 2009

KAZAN - Rani Rampal scored four goals as Indian women crushed Belgium 6-3 to win the inaugural Champions Challenge II hockey tournament here Saturday.

Rani, who emerged as the tournament’s top scorer with eight goals, struck in the 17th, 38th, 44th and 54th minutes. Besides, Saba Anjum (20th min) and Thokchom Chanchan (49th min) scored a goal each. Skipper Valerie Vermeersch (40th, 52nd) and Boon Jill (55th) scored for Belgium.

India thus qualified for next year’s Champions Challenge I proper to be held in October in South Africa. India last played in Champions Challenge I, a qualification tournament for the elite Champions Trophy, in 2001 in Johannesburg and won a bronze medal.

The Indian women put up a dominating display here wining all their five matches.

This victory will also help erase some bad memories of last year’s Beijing Olympic qualifiers here when the team finished fourth among six teams. The title could not have been more satisfying for India which lost to Belgium in the Olympic qualifiers, but in this tournament they beat them twice. They had earlier defeated Belgium 5-3 in the Pool A opener.

In the final, India never gave any chance to Belgium and attacked right from the beginning. ....contd

It's understandable...

The dissappointment of Mr. Arumugam is very much understandable.

However, the fact of the matter is, he is one of the most admired and respected journalists of the very few 'Hockey Journalists'.

Copying is a fact that exists in all spheres of our society. But few involve in 'Copying and not acknowledging'.

My earnest request to a person of Mr. Arumugam's stature is: Don't worry about such creatures. They exist and will always be there. They deserve to be brought to notice but shouldn't be dwelt upon.

I strongly believe that such people are very small in number. So, keep up the good work. Let not your energy go waste who don't deserve your attention. :):)
