LINUX - Shell script to detect file change

Below is the simple shell script which can be used to detect the file change in a particular directory. It can detect file modified, file touched, new file created, file deleted / moved, files mode change (chmod) / files owner change (chown). It runs continuously after a sleep of specified interval and compare the list of files against the list of files prior to sleep.

Please see the self explanatory shell script below.
