Your Weekly Dose Of Kellogs

We live in troubled times. Our country and its people are being made to pay dearly for the doom and misfortune that's befalling in other parts of the world. Or maybe they're just in the wrong place at the wrong time. I guess this week's Kellogs feature sounds too sombre. But then these are sombre times and we have tough things to take stock of and untoward circumstances to come to terms with.

This Kellogs Weekly is dedicated to all those Pakistanis who've forever lost some part of their life to this ongoing wave of terrorism and confusing loyalties which seem to have taken hold of the air, water and soil of our homeland. Read this very moving poem by Arooj Kohli of 3rd yr, written on the occasion of the extremely tragic demise of the son of our beloved Anatomy demonstrator, Sir Javed Iqbal, who lost his life in the terrorist attacks on the Ahmedi mosque in Lahore on 28th May 2010. We hope and pray that all the families and homes hit by the crippling hailstorm of terrorism find peace and solace and that our country and its people manage to steer clear of stormy waters and find calm shores again.




Thought Of The Day:

If you can dream and not make dreams your master

If you can think and not make thoughts your aim
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken
And stoop and build 'em with broken tools
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

(Rudyard Kipling)
