Urdu Blog: Tum Kya Jaano

Rabia Ramzan, 3rd Year MBBS

"تم کیا جانو کہ بعض دکھ کبھی نہ جانے کے لئے انسان کی زندگی میں آتے ہیں، وہ کسی وفادار دوست کی مانند ہوتے ہیں جو  آخری سانس تک ساتھ نبھاتے ہیں۔۔۔تم کیا جانو کہ بعض غم دامن میں اٹکےان کانٹوں کی طرح ہوتے ہیں جن سے اگر جان چھڑانے کی کوشش کی جاۓ تو ہاتھ لہو لہو ہو جاتے ہیں اور دامن تار تار، لیکن وہ کانٹے پھر بھی وہیں کے وہیں رہتے ہیں، اور اگر ان  کی موجودگی میں جینے کی کوشش کی جاۓ، تو ان کی چبھن لحظہ بہ لحظہ خون کے آنسو رلاتی ہے۔۔۔تم کیا جانو کہ بعض دکھوں سے نجات کا کوئ راستہ نہیں ہوتا سواۓ اس کے کہ انسان ان پر صبر کر لے اور ان دامن کے کانٹوں کی چبھن سمیت جینا سیکھ لے۔۔۔تم کیا جانو کہ بعض غم یادداشت کی سلیٹ پر ایسی سیاہی سے لکھے جاتے ہیں کہ وقت کی دھول بھی انہیں ماند نہیں پڑنے دیتی۔۔۔تم کیا جانو کہ بعض دکھ کسی سخت جان پودے کی طرح اپنی جڑیں ہمارے وجود کی سرحدوں کے پار لے جا کر ہماری روح کو جکڑ لیتے ہیں۔۔۔تم کیا جانو کہ بعض غم انسان کو جیتے جی مار ڈالتے ہیں اور اس کے اندر ویرانیوں کے سوا کچھ نہیں رہ جاتا، اس کی سب مسکراہٹیں سطحی اور سب قہقہے کھوکھلے ہو جاتے …

The Devil's Bride

Azmir Ali (1st Year)


Red Dress and Bloody Lips, Waving in a sultry dance, Not knowing what will happen, She was in such a trance,
A figure entered through the gate, With a grin on his face, His dark eyes following her gait, The Devil was enthralled by her grace,
Captivated by her vestal beauty, The Devil beseeched her to a dance, She was illuded by his charms, By the idyllic feeling of romance,
Their dance capturing everybody’s gaze, The scene blurred by a mysterious haze, Holding her frail body, The Devil knew it was time, Fire swallowed all her body, Leaving neither a penny nor a dime,
Searched the people on their legs, Searched the people on their rides, But nobody knew that she, Had become the Devil’s Bride.

The Day Sir Shakeel Solved a Dilemma

Syed Hasan Mohi-ud-din Gilani (1st Year)
They say "the children have the most inquisitive minds."  We, as firstulas, are the children of KE - or at least, that is what our seniors think of us. *sigh* SENIORS! I want to talk about their types but let's save that for later. From guiding us through stages and substages by giving us three-night, two-night and even one-night packages to make it through them, to luring us into believing that we need to chill and take-it-easy. From mocking us on our cluelessness about the use of H&E pencils to passing sarcastic remarks on our wishful drawings. They always keep saying to us "you know nothing Jon(iors) sno(t)." But who can blame them? We could never figure it out which pencil was basophilic and which one was eosinophilic, and the mystery remains unsolved. And their relationship advices -this is a topic in itself. Don't push me now. Their psychoanalysis of teachers is so perfect that we feel like they have been tra…

DENGUE VIRUS & Its SPREAD BY MOSQUITOES:
Dengue fever is a viral infection caused by dengue virus which has four serotypes said to be serotype 1, 2, 3 and 4. In Pakistan the most common serotypes involved are 2 and 3.
The vector of dengue fever is aedes aegypti mosquito but in Pakistan it has been seen that in 50 percent of the cases aedes albopticus mosquito is also involved. Only the female mosquitoes of these before mentioned types are responsible for spread of dengue virus as they lay eggs and need proteins for that purpose and they get that protein from the blood of human beings. Male mosquitoes don’t bite and so are not involved in the spre…

URDU Blog : ‫مجھے تو ڈر سا لگتا ہے

By Noor e Ahmed, Class of 2019 ‫مجھے تو ڈر سا لگتا ہے کبھی خوشیوں کے آنے سے  ہمیشہ مسکرانے سے کہ مرگِ شادمانی میں ذرا سی دیر لگتی ہے  مجھے تو ڈر سا لگتا ہے 


کبھی سب کچھ بتانے سے  کبھی سب کچھ چھپانے سے  کہ بےجا ترجمانی میں ذرا سی دیر لگتی ہے 
مجھے تو ڈر سا لگتا ہے 


کسی کے پاس جانے سے  اسے اپنا بنانے سے  کہ دل کی بدگمانی میں ذرا سی دیر لگتی ہے 
مجھے تو ڈر سا لگتا ہے 


کسی خواہش کے ہونے سے کسی حسرت کو پانے سے کہ ترکِ بندگانی میں ذرا سی دیر لگتی ہے 
مجھے تو ڈر سا لگتا ہے


محبت آزمانے سے کسی کے دور جانے سے کہ ختمِ زندگانی میں ذرا سی دیر لگتی ہے 
مجھے تو ڈر سا لگتا ہے 


کبھی خود کو ہی پانے سے

A Semi-serious but essential guide for Upcoming House Officers

About choosing fields

1. Try to do house job with friends. If you do it alone you make make great friends or you may not. My friends and I dropped our merits , changed the choice of our units (only regretted it once) even did less likeable fields but mostly we did it together. That really helped me specially in majors in a big way (in both emotional and social supports) .
2. If you have interest in a field do house job so you can get some perspective. Three of us friends did that a and decided No , Yes and Pretty sure about our prospective fields. (Radio Psych and Eye but not in that order necessarily  :D ) I did Psych even I after being advised against it. And I did it alone. But I didn't regret it. (Even though sometimes being alone really really sucked )  3. Do a fun specialty which you definitely know you aren't gonna do in future. I did eye and not only I had fun but I also learned some pretty good ophthalmic bases which are really helpful. (Also I finally let go of the fear…

How To Apply For House Job

I am assuming everyone is as lost as me, and if you are not then shame on you XD you could have written this blog ages ago for us ;-; So anyways I am  going to try to explain the process of application for housejob (KEMU/MAYO)  It consists of three steps mainly: 1.Getting a provisional certificate from KE (it a piece of paper used til the degree is issued, stating you graduated from your institute) 2.Getting a PMDC provisional certification for House job (it states that you can now perform HJ) 3.Actually applying for the housejob

FROM HOME 1.Around 5 copies of all the DMCs (get 4 sets attested from someone beforehand, one set will be attested by the VC) 2.  Around 5 copies of your matric and FSc certificate or ‘sanad’ (get 4 sets attested from some…

The Step 1 Examination: Preparation and Test-taking Strategies

By Ali Haider Jafry
I was able to take the Step 1 exam on the 20th of September, 2017 in my final year of medical school and managed to score 266, Alhamdulillah. Since a lot of articles detailing the exam’s structure and test-takers’ experiences already exist, here I shall only briefly outline my own experience and try to highlight some of the more important ways in which I had to differ from other students’ preparation strategies.
