Ankit Fadia knows more about computers than you and I. He surely knows much more than any average computer, networking guy. But is he the real wonder-kid that the Indian press once called him?
First of all, I’m not jealous of Mr. Fadia’s success or the money he’s making through Ethical Hacking Courses and his books. However, I made few shocking discoveries on the Internet that I thought I must share with you. The discoveries (I’m sharing below) makes me think how ethical Mr. Fadia is.
Attrition.org says Mr. Fadia’s first book “Unofficial Guide To Ethical Hacking” which he wrote at the age of 14 is 32% plagiarized. Here’s the proof –
Other book “Network Intrusion Alert“, co-authored with Mr. Manu Zacharia is also on the same lines –
Ankit Fadia was also the “MTV Youth Icon 2008”. I know lot of people who idolize Ankit and are ready to spend thousands of bucks to attend his ethical hacking courses.
I sometimes wonder, whether Indians can ever do anything original or without copy-pasting. Our movies (by the way, for your information Tees Maar Khan is a copy of Hollywoods “After The Fox”), our music, our reality shows, our soaps are all copy-pasts of western counterparts.
Why is India full of such people?
Also, should Indians idolize Ankit Fadia?
