I’m gruntled after reading this one

In one of my favourite reads of all time, PG Wodehouse wrote, “I could see that, if not actually disgruntled, he was far from being gruntled.”
To me, then, it was a bizarre experience of a non-word bringing out the richness in meaning of a real word.
And it’s happened again. Jerry and Joe Long, writing on George W Bush’s post-presidential plans, talk about how he plans to “replenish the coffers.” Except, they can’t remember when he plenished them in the first place.
Great read. Go there!

Dear Mr Anant Rangaswami,

OCMS.in is India’s first media school and hopes to become its biggest media vertical in the coming years. It has been set up by a group of journalists, and among its several features is BlogBuzz.

OCMS believes that blogs reflect a very important opinion on how media works. Often, you find wonderful insights in these blogs. Some of these have been featured in MediaLab.

But more than that we would like to feature an excerpt from your blog every time you write a fresh post. This will then be linked to your blog so that OCMS users, who are mainly journalists, can read the post in full.

We hope that this way we will be able to link all media bloggers across the world.
Please let us know if we have your permission to do so.

You can access the OCMS BlogBuzz from:

With regards,

Sunil Saxena

Hi! My name is Project 71. Weird name I know, but my masters are weird too. My masters apologize for such an out-of-context comment and they know how painful such spamlike comments are. But, say masters, how else are we to present something good to the world. By that they mean me :D. Kindly see what I am about. Won't take you more than 22s to read... http://www.project71.com/readme Enjoyy!
