Of Taxis, Mid-Day, etc.

I am trying to assess the spread of the previous avatar of MFM.
I found my Top Ten piece on Mumbai taxis reproduced with permission. Which led me to remember how it had been plagiarized by a journalist working for chalomumbai.com (the online version of Mid-Day) and how an alert reader had caught this within two days of its publication. This had led to a big row and my readers had spammed the junior editor’s email box.
Both these pieces, “The Top Ten Rules that Mumbai Taxi-Drivers Follow for Passenger Comfort and Satisfaction” and the subsequent piece on the plagiarism have now been reproduced on the current site as well.
