Augment your good souls

by Sidra Chishti

A session with Dr. Izhar Hashmi, Dr. Ali Hashmi, Dr. Asim Allah Baksh, Mr. Hamayun Ehsaan

Wanted to share with you all, some inspirational words of some
inspirational people. (I wrote them on an envelope. Had nothing to
write on and to write with, right at that time. Somehow managed a
pencil for that.)

The moment I arrived Pakistan college of commerce and management , Dr.
Ali Hashmi was discussing ‘WE THINK WHY WE DO SOMETHING GOOD? If we
can’t give a person, a glass of water; why we give him a drop of
water? This WHY creates the problem. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO DO WHATEVER
YOU CAN. PERCENTAGE COUNTS! Your intention and struggle is important.
Five rupee charity by a poor man is worth more than five thousand
rupees donation by a millionaire.
Don’t live for self promotion. What makes you ‘ASHRAF UL MAKHLOOQAAT’
is service. Though enlightened self interest is appropriate, you ought
to live for others to deserve to be called the best of all creations.

Dr. Asim Allah Baksh continued. “There is probably some problem in our
educational system. We are not prepared for real life. We are taught
“do good to others”, “remain honest”, “bribery is bad”. But when we
grow up and move in the society in which you are most probably harmed
(apparently) by following those norms which are taught to you. If from
the very beginning, we are prepared to live in a society of crimes,
it’ll be better. We should be taught, “HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY EVEN
IF IT IS NOT THE TREND.” Although it’s difficult, speak the truth
To define the notion of progress is very important. After world war
II, there was a fundamental change in work ethics of Japanese. BEST
labor and best products were available locally. It is the philosophy
of sustained progress. We are lagging behind because we export the
best we have. Be it our products or people.

Mr. Humayun Ehsaan, infact a very sweet person, was there too. He also
shared his experience.
“DON’T TALK WHAT YOU DON’T DO. This must be the controlling norm of
your life. Allah demanded actions and man invented slogans.” Action
speaks. You’ve not to charter what you are doing. Eventually movement
matters, not your floral talks. Superior man is modest in his speech.
Success becomes inevitable when goodness becomes a part of our own
“There is no relation between success and resources. I had only 525$
when I went to America for studies. I had to clean 22 floors of a
hotel to make my living. Whenever I look back, I want to work as a
waiter. That flash back learning was important.”
The highest percentage of talent is there in subcontinent. It’s you,
the INDUS. Why other countries are eyeing at you talents? Because the
mind you’ve got is novel. We listen a Pakistani student getting 22 A’s
every other day. Quoted Iqbal:
You are everything. You’ve everything.

Dr. Izhar Hashmi said, “Sympathy isn’t a relation. Empathy is the real
thing. Try to remain humble. With every passing day of self discovery,
you should become humble. Think yourself the blessed.”
Change isn’t smoother but it does come! You need to take things and
criticism positively. You’ve to inculcate trust among people.
Important thing is your thinking. Your life is your thoughts (you can
take your thoughts as lens). Nothing is absolute factorization except
that you’ve to leave this world after a fixed time frame. Everything
is relative. So, thoughts are different, people are different but goal
should be the same. I.e., SERVICE! Replicate your projects. Confront
criticism with courage. Intellectual discourse is infinite. So take it
positively. Remain patient. (OFTEN SOCRATES IS ALONE IN A COMMUNITY;
ALTHOUGH HE IS TRUE FOR SURE) Do what you can. You can’t bring a
change in a day, a year or a definitive time span. It’s a gradual
process. Just play your role.
Important for you is to keep the good soul in you. Your phenomenal
strength should be hard work. Make it your habit.
Very beautifully, he continued. . . “Anthropologically, Indus valley
avenue is the richest (homo sapiens) You are the talent, world is
seeking for. So, give your best to your country.”
We are determined to stand wherever we can; we’ll do whatever we can;
we’ll continue struggle!
Such sittings are very important for the augmentation of good essence.

This was actually in a meeting of PYS (PAKISTAN YOUTH SPRING). With
the efforts of Dr. Izhar Hashmi, this platform is created to
communicate with other universities and colleges regarding social
services. In that meeting, students from KEMU, NUST, UET, SIMS, GIKI,
GCU, PU, LUMS, FCU and BZU were there. The aim is to assist each other
and to make collective efforts at our level.

USMLE Step 1 Experience by Ayaz Mehmood (Score : 99/266)

USMLE Step 1 Experience by Ayaz Mehmood (Score : 99/266)
Salam everyone, let me start in the name of Allah who’s the greatest benefactor of all mankind. I am going to write a detailed composition regarding preparation for USMLE Step 1. I am a final year student at King Edward Medical University and I took my exam on June 10th. Final year is the year before internship/ house job in Pakistan. I just got my scores: 99/266

Let me introduce some myths surrounding USMLE Step 1 which are especially prevalent within Pakistan; I am not too sure about India because I heard their students typically appear in their final years.

 Myth number 1:Do not appear for USMLE Step 1 within your graduation

 Verdict: Baseless, illogical reasoning

Explanation: This is so prevalent in Pakistan it’s almost pathetic. One of the biggest concerns surrounding our students is that Step 1 is a huge risk to be taken before graduation. Let me put it in another way: Step1 would always remain a risk whenever it is taken, …

Australian Medical Council AMC Part 1 Guide - Experience and Tips

AMC Part 1 by Dr. Asad Khizar Malik (Rank : 77/620) Australian Medical Council  Guide - Experience and Tips
Salam people, let me start in the name of Allah who’s the greatest benefactor of all mankind. Hope everyone is doing great. I'll try to write as much as I can for the people who are due to various reasons more interested in joining Australian Hospitals for post-grad training as compared to the USMLE pathway.

I am a graduate of King Edward Medical University, class of 2004-2010. I did my 6 months house job after graduation in Mayo Hospital, and after that, i gave my AMC Part 1 in November, 2010 from Brisbane. With the grace of Allah, I passed that in first attempt.


First thing in mind that comes with post grad training in Pakistani doctors minds is: Which way to go after graduation? That is a very tough decision that is …

Getting yourself educated in the desi manner i.e. through the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education is one of the top most challenges of today’s society. Matriculation seems difficult at that time, but when you enter FSc, you realize that matric was the easiest job in the world.  Those obese books of intermediate part I and part II are the worst enemies one can ever have.  People say Medical is tougher, but I find one basic difference in both. When you enter a medical college, y…

USMLE Step 2 CK experience by Rizwan Khan (254)


     I recently got done with Step 2 CK exam & I want to elaborate my experience and the mistakes that I made during my prep so that any of my colleagues who are preparing for this exam might benefit from them. I wont go much in detail about how to prepare and where to prepare from since it is already highly debated on the forum and in the previous posts but would focus more on my personal experience and the bad choices which I made during the preparation phase.
