Plagiarism and Kaavya

Addendum to my previous post

The much hyped teeenage Indian writer Kaavya Viswanthan has been charged with Plagirism by Harvard Crimson. Sources say that she has liberally used many of the ideas and phrases taken from McCafferty's Sloppy First.
See: The full text and the similarities by the Harvard Crimson.

Kaavya, meanwhile has apologised and accepted that unintentionally she had 'internalised' McCafferty's verses.
