Q.

Why do some people doubt it when we answer questions from memory and think that we have copied from somewhere? Why don't they get their facts right before making wrong accusations?What are your views about such people?

May be the first time they read your answer and if the answer has some substance they doubt it, as it is the human nature to doubt all that is beyond their reach. However when they read and reread your answers and after some time they will definitely come to the conclusion about your capacity and then that doubt became the admiration. It is just human nature to envy and doubt. Just ignore them.

Mitali.. such people are those people who cannot write a single line of their own even to save their skins. Give them a small paragraph and ask them to paraphrase it in their own words ..I can guarantee you that they won't be able to do it. Hence they cannot believe that there are some who can actually write original lines... and so they label the originalists as plagiarizes.

Those who wear tinted glasses, see everything black. Those who copy (copy cats) always doubt that others are also copying from somewhere. The best thing to do is to ignore remarks of such persons and go ahead with what we are doing.

Originality is something,which can't be borrowed,aped and copied.
Such accusations amuse me no end...cause those who go around screaming their lungs out,just do not have it in them to imagine,that someone can possess such vast knowledge too.
The likes of us,who do not need the 'aids' of sources to create...can not understand such things and should simply walk ahead,as such people cry hoarse.
Personally speaking,I feel these people are losers or wannabes who just have real bad digestive systems!!
Their accusations are not based on facts...they simply lash out in desperation,cause of their inapt inadequacies and insecurities.
Genius can be resented/condemned and ridiculed...but it just can't be stolen/snatched or taken away!!
So just go on doing,what you do best...be original and creative.

They are True ......When we see something somewhere we copy it in our mind and it becomes a part of our memory.........So both are right....

Hi Mitali, Qna also has the ugly side of the society. In real world people dont dare to speak in front of us, so speak behind us. But here in this virtual arena, all are masked so dare to speak or make accusations in the most crude way that comes into the devil minds. Only thing is to ignore such weak minded people who dont have the capabitlity of doing anything productive .The only option they find is to watch and criticise others activities and Just spit the venom ,wherever also,as far as possible.....!!!

'Accusation' is something that stems from one's inability to cope with the reality.Qna is the cross section of typical India.Here, what we all experience is the only way to experience India with no boundaries of geography,religion,caste,creed or race.I do not mean that there are no such divisions here.The divisions are very much there but not evident superficially.So when you feel bad about the wrong accusation,you should not see it with a single reason for one to do so.It can be the reflection of many more reasons that the person may not be able to divulge.The only way to target you would be to make something out to accuse.
The question is,then what to do.People of this type are incorrigible.The only way to do is to ignore them.Do not give them the pleasure of that they wished to extract from you.

Kiya toh kiya.....copy-e toh kiya naa.....koi khun toh nahi kiya.............................

Jokes apart, Mitali ji.....we all human do a little bit of copy from others to live life....a small child copy words from their parents and learn to speak the same....later on, we learn to copy our parents about their behaviour and way of delivering speech etc etc....While compiling any article, I use to copy from various resources.......it is very natural....I personally feel good to copy those good jestures from my seniors and follows those in my personal life.......Copy is a good skill, at least we are trying to learn than those who don't do anything but criticise.

Some people are making it a big issue and try to irretate others, which is not good....Please, don't bother....our QnA is also a miniature form of our society....where good and bad co-e ...more

..mitali, tell them that learning from others and improving upon them is not a bad thing, rather it is an accepted thing to buld upon the knowledge already accumulated, by adding your own observations.
Even way back, Sir Isaac Newton (January 4, 1643 March 31, 1727) acknowledged that:
**If I have seen further it is only by standing on the shoulders of giants**

There are some persons who always use borrowed knowledge to answer qna questions This is to get either BA or to show their *deep understanding* of the subject. Since they themselves use this tecnique, they feel that all others, who give correct answers are also doing the same thing. They just cant believe, somebody can write their own answers. When they cannot do it, how others can do ? Then they ask *is it copied *? They never realize, they are insulting a genius. Such people really harm the thinking process of an intelligent person. I feel that one should ignore such persons, as their real aim is to disturb the true answerer.. If you are disturbed by such accusations Mitali ji, you are just walking in to their trap.
