End of Kaavya As A Writer

Kaavya Viswanathan's two book deal with her publishers has fallen through and her How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild and Got A Life has been permanently withdrawn by publishers. The young author has gotten involved in a new plagarism controversy - this time with authors Meg Cabot and Salman Rushdie.

Good for her and us. Now Kaavya should concentrate on her studies at Harvard. Hope we seen last of her as a writer.

She's a foolish girl, I wonder if she will be able to rebuild a career?

I fear that there are more "Kaavya" types lurking out there!

I referenced your post and article link in my blog, HERE.

@dave: I agree with you totally. I hope Harvard will let her continue there as a student.

@dave lucas: Yes, there maybe. I hope they will learn from her.
