Freedom

“So what’s the plan now”, asked Ali, the youngest one in the room. They were all gathered here to conduct their yearly meeting, something they had been doing for quite some years now. After every sitting, a plan was made, to show their strength, to prove their mettle to their oppressors..
In response their leader, Abdul Ghani looked around in the room while subconsciously rubbing his beard. Their number had fallen considerably over the years. Many of them had been killed by the enemy, some captured. They all knew the risk, yet every year they huddled around in this room. In the beginning Ghani had his doubts. In the early years, he would prepare himself before every meeting, to find an empty room. But it never happened. The only ones who would not show up were either martyred, injured or captured. The rest were there every year no matter what sort of restrictions were forced upon them by the ruling government.
“My brothers, the plan like every other year, is to show the world what we really want. We will tell them which flag we’ll call ours and which one we’ll hate with all of our being. In the battle of right and wrong, right always wins, HAQ always conquers the BATIL..” Abdul Ghani said in a quiet yet very effective voice. He had this amazing ability to move people by his words. Their plan was quite simple. Everyone would bring as many people as possible and together they will move forwards.
It was the bright morning of 14th august when Ghani along with his men marched onto the main road of their town. The whole area was under strict martial law. There were dozens of green flags fluttering in their procession. The Indian army was already prepared to stop them. The moment they saw the huge procession, they charged towards it. Abdul Ghani looked at his people. Nobody was armed. They were holding huge Pakistani flags and raising slogans, Naar e takbeer… Allah hu Akbar. Everyone was brimming with passion and patriotism. Then he looked at the opponent army. Their troopers carried big modern rifles and bullet proof screens. Some even had rocket launchers. A tear escaped from his eye as he smiled with satisfaction. His people had already won this war.
"Pakistan!"
"Zindabad!
     
Gunshots...

Every year thousands of Kashmiris are killed by the Indian army for waving green and white flags and wanting to be called Pakistani. But this doesn’t stop them from coming out of their homes on 14th August to celebrate the ‘independence day’. May Allah accept their sacrifice and soon grant them freedom.

1st Year IMPORTANT TOPICS (Anatomy)

By Farkhanda QaiserOkay finally here it is. The all-important guide for the 1st year students. I’ve compiled all the prof and sendup questions of last year as well as the remnants of class tests that I had.But before you go on to read them, keep in mind the following very tested tidbits:For profs, NEVER leave any topic untouched and unread. Go through all topics so that in viva, you have atleast some idea about what the examiner is asking.NEVER lose your sendup question paper because there are high chances that some of the questions will be repeated in profs as you can see in the following example of anatomy question paper and same goes for the MCQs. Most of them are repeated. So here’s what we had done, in our facebook class group, we had made a discussion topic, and everyone told the MCQs of sendups and discussed them. Well, you may think us nerds or whatever but trust me that discussion proved very fruitful for all those who participated in it.I think enough has bin said about orga…

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, …
