Kemcolian Legacy – Story of Reunion ‘88

By Ruhma Ihsan 3rd Year
It was a gloomy and dark day when Dr.Sidra gave me the news that I have to stay here in winter vacations to help our seniors in planning their reunion. I agreed, "seniors, ahan" *sighs*

They are planning their 25th anniversary of graduation and I was like what??  What will we do in party of some old dry sophisticated papery doctors?!
Then the show started. Day after day of meetings and discussions followed. Surprisingly we enjoyed those meetings; the spice of the meetings was Dr.Nadeem Ali Khan. The way he smiled at us like a beloved father and said,"Guriya" filled our hearts with affection for him. He holds a prestigious office and yet he is so humble. *Respect Sir*
On that day (25th December) we woke up planning that we will stay serious and behave in a mature manner. After promising ourselves thus, we reached Patiala cricket ground. There we were told that more than one class has come. Match was planned between classes of 1988 and 1993. Stalls…

Something Old and Something Sweet!

Its become an almost everyday ritual now.Leaving the college cafeteria with its banal menu,and oh-so-crammed interior,I set out to explore eat-outs in Anarkali.
And while my friends always hate my random trips around the ancient alleys and are always trying to steer me off to the-good-old-al-karim,they don't always have their way.
And so,on one such trip, I stumbled across S.Mohkam&Sons. Nestled in a crook not far from the right-wing entrance to the Patiala Block,S.Mohkamuddin has a rich history(and some heavenly finger biscuits too) to share with any curious soul who decides to drop in.

Mohkam is probably the oldest modern bakery in Asia. Established in 1879 when the concept of cakes and biscuits was alien to the Indians who were more akin to such delights as 'ladoos' and 'peras',it managed to make a huge name in the subcontinent in a very short period.

A tribute to "Uncle"...

10 Steps to Ace MCAT

By Aneeqa Javed
1st Year

MCAT has always been a subject to criticism and every year we hear rumors like ‘iss saal MCAT nae hona’. But the thing is, whether you like it or not, you will have to take the test if you wish to be a doctor. Of course you will have to fly high in MCAT if you wish to be a kemcolian. I’ve gone through it once (thank God!) and I would like to share what I learned from my experience. If I summarize it, I think there are not more than 10 simple things you need to do to ace MCAT.


The most important thing is that you go through all your books i.e. chemistry, biology and physics at least once. Try to read the chapters as much as you can. Trust me; the book reading will help you more than you know. If you’ve done A levels, it is highly necessary that you go through the F.Sc books.

The Module System: A Road to Glory ?

By Aneeqa Javed (1st Year)

Like most of the other pre-med students, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. All I cared about back then was getting into Pakistan’s most prestigious institution ‘king Edward medical university’. Little did I know that I’d be one of the guinea pigs or should I say ‘the lucky batch’ that’d be a part of a new experiment, supposedly a new system that would enable medical students to learn faster and better (better sounds good). This was the ‘integrated module system’.

Modular System: Views and Reviews

By Muhammad Mohsin Ali (1st Year)
In a bid to revolutionize medical education by integrating technology with learning, our Vice Chancellor (from what everyone seems to be saying) has introduced a modular system of learning, a system which, because of its novelty and realistic approach, stands in sharp contrast to the conventional system of teaching. While many teachers and students (I’m in) consider this as the beginnings of a change, some of the neo-traditionalists (sorry, I couldn’t resist using the term) consider it as futile, and for all practical purposes, utterly a hallmark of professional imbecility.

The firstulla week: a Tom and Jerry Show

{Note: Some of you must be opening Google translate (no, it’s no use denying) to find out what the title means. It’d be better to linger not on things that are beyond comprehension and move on. And if you find my superciliousness distasteful, go get a cookie. Send me one, too.}
With beaming faces, shining brows (with perspiration resulting more from trepidation than excitement) and crisp cuffs, the freshmen make their way to the new auditorium, anticipating a warm welcome from the Varsity administration. They certainly get it, both from the administration, and from those to whom the administration administers.
Contrary to popular appeal (and if it must be said, widespread superstition) that once you are safe and sound in the new auditorium, you get to hear a most interesting introduction to KEMU, the premier med school in Pakistan, the actual proceedings are a bit wh…

’پاپا آ گئے۔۔۔۔۔پاپا آ گئے۔۔۔۔۔“ علی سکندر اپنے پاپا کی طرف لپکتا ہے جو ابھی آفس سے واپس آئے ہیں۔ ”پاپا چلیں کھیلتے ہیں۔۔۔۔۔ چلیں نا میرے ساتھ۔۔۔۔۔پلیز پاپا۔“ اس کا معصوم دل اپنے باپ کی توجہ کا متمنی تھا۔ مگر اس کا باپ تھکاوٹ کا عذر پیش کرتے ہوئے کہتا ہے: ”بیٹا آپ جا کر ٹی وی پر اپنے پسندیدہ کارٹون دیکھ لیں۔“ اور علی کھیل کی فطری خواہش کو اپنے دل میں دبائے ٹی وی دیکھنے بیٹھ جاتا ہے۔۔۔۔۔شاید وہ معصوم خواہش آئندہ کبھی سر نہ اٹھائے۔
