nsut_dwarka's blog

I am a second year undergrad student at NSUT. I came across the linkedIn profile of one of my seniors Anurag Lal. Seeing the profile I was very impressed by the achievements and honors mentioned in his profile. I haven't met him or talked to him personally, but have heard about him from my peers.

But seeing his profile, I have become a little fishy of the achievements mentioned there. I may be totally wrong, but I will present what I can infer from the information available in his linkedIn profile. First of all, all the achievements and honors mentioned on his profile aren't backed by any certificate or relevant links. Though, it is not necessary to back them up with certificates and links, but doing so surely adds to the credibility when stakes are already so high.

He mentions in his LinkedIn profile heading that he is a 7 star coder on codechef and master on codeforces. When we scroll down to his Honors & Awards, we see a highest codeforces rating of 2563. It is a damm impressive rating and easily the best from my institutiuon and even in top 10 or 15 from India.

Further, he has interned from Google California in his second year at college. This again is a very impressive achievement for a second year student. I was not able to find any codeforces/codechef profile upon googling his name. I even searched for 7 star people on codechef from India. All of them had some profile identifier none of which I could attribute to him. I haven't searched in the global ranklist of codechef for any matching profile. Though it may be possible that he made an account with a different country, but again he is mentioning in his LinkedIn profile that he is a 7 star coder so there should be some amount of credibility atleast.

Further, he has mentioned in his LinkedIn profile that he got a rank of 10 amongst 1112 participants. I went to the rankings page, and found the participant with rank 10 is only a four star participant which I cannot trace back to Anurag Lal in any way.

Also, he has mentioned that he secured rank 2476 in codejam round 1A, 2020. The name of the account there is "bmu". I checked codeforces and there exists a profile with the same name. I further cross checked the template used by bmu which exactly matches the template used by the codejam account in question. Hopefully bmu can provide us with verification that he is or is not Anurag Lal.

I know it may not be none of my business to question a certain individual. But that individual is being looked upon by thousands of junior students like us and if they resort to such tactics, it does not send a good message at all. I am tagging all the top profiles from nsut so they may respond with any information if available.

lucky_21, savy_123, hrithik_v, astroash, _WhyNotMe_, RaunaqRoxx, Harsh0911, shivamsatishgarg, Amanbhadauria01, raghav_0901, mafailure, icesaver, cuber_coder, aman28rwt, satyamgarg121, AnkurTiwari1903, traumatized, iceburst, nj099, leostars18.

EDIT-1: I know Anurag Lal exists as a person. It is not that the entire profile is of a non-existant person.

EDIT-2: He has updated his linkedin and removed all the ranks and cp ratings. Further his classmates reached out to me explaining that this guy is a fraud. All the projects he has mentioned on linkedin are fake as well, he has simple cloned others projects on git-hub. Also he mentions that he is a researcher from MIT and Berkeley all of which is fake. Such people should be exposed and his linkedin profile should be reported for fraud.

He has been lying since he has joined NSUT. At first we(his batchmates) were pretty impressed on hearing his achievements but soon we realized that he is full of shit and knows nothing.

    In order to improve, one must first be beaten down, embarrassed and humiliated. For one to rise, they must first fall.

    Just confirm if you are related in any way to Anurag Lal. Exposing someone's performance was not the intention bro.

Ok This Anurag guy is such a big fraud oh my god.He actually made me believe he is a genius.And later started flirting with me,I found it fishy and asked my friend from Google whether such an individual work as senior research scientist or not and yes,there has never ever been a person named Anurag.on being asked upon,he come up with new story that " he is secret service agent" ....I was like " bro it's too much".Please ask the university to take action on this person.I understood all of this just in 3 days and I am feeling pity on those who believe on it and I am afraid that how many people he might have trapped.

Stay safe and report this person.

lol! why do you even look up to people just improve your problem solving and focus on giving contests. If the so and so person is a cheater or is a fraud he won't be able to clear interviews or get a job with the achievements he has mentioned. Just focus on yourself stop with the bs. Stop becoming like this hermi heap_overflow who is just wasting his time doing nothing.

      I wasn't replying to you. I was saying in general that people should focus on themselves rather than being jealous , wasting time in bringing the so and so person down , talking shit , spreading their incomplete knowledge about a particular topic.
