I would have gone ahead with the publication of my fourth edition. But #588110 of a member was in a bitter taste. I am reproducing it here.
"My name on the map is put there without my permission. This subject has been raised on a previous occasion, but to no avail. I have asked for my name to be removed, but it is still there. There is no dearth of members, so why does my name feature on the map, despite having requested that it be removed.
ISC may endorse and support this map, but that does not permit you to infringe on my rights.
Please understand the cliché 'no, means no'."
@ The member should have simply asked me to delete her name from the map in simple words rather than telling a lie that she had asked me to remove her name earlier. Had she asked me to remove her name earlier, I would have obliged, and her name would not have appeared in the third edition. So it is utterly a lie blaming the Map author. I cannot tolerate members telling lie.
Hence I have decided not to go ahead with the fourth edition. My decision is firm and final.
@Vandana: Why should I apologize when I have not done anything wrong? The issue was discussed and the concerned member has informed her state and was pleased to see her name in the right place(Delhi). Why a sudden jerk with lies?. Was there any communication to get her name removed from the map in the past? If yes, it is a proven lie.
@ Saji: As of now, I have no plan to publish my fourth edition. I am happy with the work that I have done. 1,2,& 3 is good enough for me.
I repeat and say - "When love is thin, the fault is thick."- a proven proverb fit for this issue.
Finally, Let the member come forward and seek an apology for telling a lie, I would alter my decision.
