Of rats and soggy croissants - the ultimate hostel survival guide

One year ago , around this very same time, I entered the bounds of the the gargantuan *pun intended* Old Girls Hostel , KEMU. Neela Gunbad tu thora agy jao,tey sajey hath muro thora agy ja k aik gali wich kala gate aye da, lo agya twada hostel.
The daunting black gates, the threatening curfew notice on top (which by the way is never followed so jitney marzi bajey M.M.Alam se wapis aao) and the black-clad slightly stout uncles to greet you , your first impression of the hostel would no doubt be horrible, but you already knew you were not entering into the Ritz Carlton anyways. Don't let that scare you. Hostel , at first sight, was a nightmare.The allotment was more like throwing your mattress on any piece of carpeted ground you could find and claiming that space to be yours.

Thirteen girls in a single room, with mattresses side to side , was no slumber party.Sadly on our first night there, the rugby-sized rats gate crashed as well and added to the misery of cold showers and fungus.

Random things I learnt from school and college which I think will help me in university!

Random things I learnt from school  and college which I think will help me in university!
Unsa Athar

A funny list of things I learnt from school and college that might make you have the feeling of De Ja Vu.

ØWhen you are done with your assignment, you always find a better way to do it.

ØWhen you finally get the opportunity to go and buy all the stuff your teacher told you to, she/he will remember another one the very next day. And that too a thing very important!

ØIt’s no use telling your friend you have prepared for the tomorrow’s test or saying aik lafz nahi parhna. They will never believe it. Just say “woi haalat hai jo sab ki hoti hai

ØIf you are the famous one in your class, be mentally prepared to hear some weird (really weird) rumours about yourself.
ØGiving explanations to everyone will not kill the rumour. Saying just a “Whatever” will produce better results. ØIf you once bring a frog for school dissection, you will always be expected to ‘produce’ frogs for every dissection that f…

Entrer La King Edward !!

Welcome Guide to Anxious Freshmen ( Batch 2012-17 )!!
It is the same time of the year again, when King Edward desperately awaits the arrival of its First year. Oh and I am sure there are those Lucky 303 students out there, spending every moment in desperation to step into the magnificent Patiala with their heads held high in pride and recognition  of the fact that they belong here.

For those lucky Brats ( I mean Nerds :P ) here is a manual of instructions and basic rules and regulations to make their survival here in King Edward easier.

Disclaimer :These instructions are purely based on personal experience of a freshman ( i.e me ) and the administration has nothing to do with these ;)
Okay Since you read the first part and finally reached here I can imagine how desperate you guys are to know the tips to be a better Kemcolian, so from now on read every line a little more carefully because these are some real golden words to a freshman. :P

First thing's first. RAGGING - I know,…

A Step Further…By Unsa Athar Note: The Article has been written by a student who has not yet started her professional medical education. So If some professionals have strong disagreements to her ideas, Please ignore her:-P
“So if it is so important to have an end in mind, how do you do it? The best way I have found is to write a mission statement. A personal mission statement is like a personal credo or motto that states what your life is about. It is like the blueprint to your life. Countries have constitutions, which function just like mission statement. And most companies, like Microsoft and Coca-Cola, have mission statements. But I think they work best with people.” says Sean Covey, in his book The 7 habits of highly effective teens. So why does Covey and a dear teacher of mine (who lent me the above mentioned book to read) emphasize so greatly on writing mission statements? Well now I know why. Because when you vow to do something and you write it down, it gets embedded in your mi…

For the future MCATIANs -Fighting your fears by Unsa Athar

When I was youngster of 8th class, I was not sure which field I really wanted to choose. In our school, only sciences are taught. In 9th class also, we had no choice between biology and mathematics. We only had biology to study to. Aur jab bachpan mn pocha jata tha k bdey ho k kia bno gai, my answer always was ‘DOCTOR’ even though I had never thought about it. Scoring good grades has this one short coming, you are expected to become a doctor or an engineerL. After acquiring good marks in Matric, and getting a bit time to think straight, I brooded over it and came to know that Yes, Medicine was my field! So my first advices for all those students of matriculation out there is to think, discuss and decide where they really want to go. Go through proper career counseling after Matriculation. Even If you are in pre-medical right now, take out time to discuss yourself with someone who is already in medicine and make sure you are ready to be a part of that field and your heart feels one wit…
