    I actually happend to send Geopolitics a real strongly worded comment on tweeter. Maybe that is why they came up with the aoplogy.

    Hi Shiv. You are right here. You deserve their apology, and glad it didn't come a bit too late. But I wonder whether the magazine's error was intentional or 'normal' editorial error (happens even to the best of us, every desk person will agree). So, as a good journalist who care, do find out what happened to the lowest-ranking person in their office who made this error creep in. It may seem improper for you to 'care' about another organisation's internal matter, but it is only human to do it. Somebody may have lost his/her job because you wanted your credit. But then, life is unfair, so is war.

    Shiv,
    You are a very respected journo and I keenly follow you on TV and online, it was sad to see your work getting copied without your permission. Glad to see the apology from the magazine.

    By Indian standards that was very dignified of them. So Shiv, would you be open to having your articles reprinted in the future if you were given credit?

    K Srinivasan seems like a gentleman, I like his quote 'simply cutting and pasting some items to make life easy for themselves. We are fixing responsibility and punishing the guilty.' :-).

    and guess what .. they lifted (without credit) other image(s) in their latest (Dec'11) edition.

    Clearly this is standard practice at their end and will continue to be so.

    The only reason they made a such a visible apology was because Shiv had outed them rather publicly.

    Also, read their 'apology' and the email correspondence to Shiv – Srinivasan's demeanour is rather 'different'; either that or he is bipolar!
