THE CHAMP AND THE DUCKLING



                     THE CHAMP AND THE DUCKLING

Ayesha Hassan
Second Year

Hey,how are u ?
(The little creature wasn't bothered by the question much)
Whats Ur name buddy ?'
(He kept on staring the bed.....) how rude :(
Okkk, Anything you like or want something ?
(This time the angry bird was irritated much,he started crying)
This worked,I surrendered finally..
okkkk okkkk i won't question u anymore but don't cry.
This wasn't my day, i realized..


The little guy fell asleep in the lap of his mother in a minute or so.
His mother told us his name was SUBHAN and he was suffering from acute leukemia.He had been there in paeds cancer ward for six months.Due to continuous radio and chemo therapies the kiddo was so exhausted and was in continuous grumpy mode.

But today He was peevish because someone promised the toy car with champ but didn't bring one.
LIGHT BULB ...... ... :P 
That was an easy way to befriend the champ,i thought.
As I was just leaving the ward I saw a cute chubby little girl on the bed; a cheeky fellow busy with her notebook and colors.I moved to her and our never ending chatter began .... :D
How r u ?
Ma Theet hu ... (My heart moved at that...:') )
what's ur name ?
YUSHhhRA... (the little duckling innocently replied )

what r u doing ?
I was astounded but yeahhh she was saying "ANNNA MONTAAANA(HANNA MONTANA) MA COLORS KAR RE HU".

NOW give me the mango color, she demanded with her eyes fixed on me.
Meanwhile her aunt gave her history that the very young lady was Yusra and was suffering from osteopetrosis.Due to progression in the disease she is unable to see clearly .
What r u doing ??? 
A...a... what (i was hardly able to speak)
Apko colors karna nae ata bilkul.YAy pink ha mje mango color chaia (i heard a cute angry voice) 
The kido made me realized that i was poor at drawing and i accepted this fact whole-heartedly..:D
Here is the piece of artistry done by Yousra:

 The very next day I stepped in the ward ... yes with a car.. :)
The looks of angry bird really surprised me .He wasn't angry at all and responded positively.
Before even showing the car,the champ told me his name,class,sung for me the melodious nursery rhymes,recited Surah and certain Ayat Of Holy Quran and was much more enthusiastic as compared to the previous day.
I want to become a doctor,he added 
(My eyes filled with tears hearing this.....:'( )
He was very happy to see his car.We both planned to visit every place of lahore in this little Dinky ;)
  "Meleeee Vampiree wala Teethe"
   (mere vampire wala teeth), the little lady was trying to attract my attention towards her.
 yes, the cuteness is personified for that little duckling , i said to her aunt.
  The Champ and the Duckling were the part of Make a Dream project. These kids seriously enjoyed that activity alot. Both of them wished to use the play room more often
.
It wasn't the car, but the time I spent with the little guy that brought him close to me.
   "I'll teach u how to color but you have to visit me daily ",duckling reiterated for the seventh time.
   "U don't eat anything and irritate ur mother so i won't be coming again ,alright",i said looking into champ's eyes.
    "Do come",his eyes filled with discontentment.
     "I will",I pinky promised the little guy :')
 Thousands of champs and ducklings are waiting for u to make their short lives vivacious and scintillating.They value alot the magical moments chattering and laughing with a person wearing  white coat.These kids don't value material things much but they surely enjoy your delectable company.Bringing smiles on those tormented distressed faces won't cost you much but would offer a great deal for the innocent victims to overcome the gloomy circumstances with great strength and courage.

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.

So lets start with the discussion here, but PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS ENTIRELY MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND REASONING WHY I PREFERRED AUSTRALIA OVER USA FOR RESIDENCY.

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 …

The tree that never had to fight For sun and sky and air and light, But stood out in the open rain And always got its share and rain, Never became a forest king, But lived and died a scrubby thing… Good timber does not grow with ease, The stronger wind, the stronger trees.
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)

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH THE MOST BENEFICENT AND MERCIFUL

     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.
