The answer very well might be NO :-). The title was just to grab attention :-).
But someone from the vikatan editorial team seems to have used my photo from my blog in the issue of Anantha Vikatan (30-9-09) for Ramakrishnans article "Sirithu Velicham", instead of going to the place and taking a photograph.
My Photo from the post Thiruvalluvar temple
Though this is not uncommon for individuals, a publishing house like Vikatan must be more cautious.
Though the photo in the vikatan article looks uncannily similar to mine, appearances can be deceptive. Please compare the photos and let me know your views also.
Apart from that its great to know that my photo has been used in S.Ramakrishnans article.
For people who dont know S.Ramakrishnan, he is one of the most respected tamil writer now. He is an inspiration for all people who wish to travel to obscure and forgotten places and pen down their thoughts. I drooled over his writings in "Thunaiezhuthu" and "Deshandhri" , both of which came as a series in Vikatan and later were published as a book.
His site is at sramakrishnan.com
If you havent encountered him till now, "Thunaiezhuthu" and "Desandhri" will be a good place to start.
