Blessings of KE

By Larraib Saleem (2015-20) We have been in KE for four months but it feels like this journey started years ago.The feeling of belonging to this land since long prevails everyday.During all this short time span,KEMU has been the most amazing experience so far in my life.Even though we are the batch facing the renovation crisis with most of our time being spent in the legendary old auditorium.We hope our juniors will be able to avail the physiology lecture theatre :p.We are the batch who don't even know who is our HOD for biochemistry.( total confusion hai) :/
But KE has blessed us with such awesome things we never imagined of.
1.Dome thingy :                            We firstulas believe in capturing pictures of the historic domes of Patiala at least once in a week and putting them as DPs and cover photos.Along with the picture we never miss the hashtags like
#KEMU #KEMCOLIAN :')

Mein Kiske Naam Likhun Jo Alam Guzar Rahay Hain

By  Larabe Farrukh Chaudry


It was a Sunday, but not just any other Sunday, it was the Sunday on which abba jaan had promised to take me out to the park. I had been waiting for this day for weeks now and I was unbelievably excited. Ammi jaan gave me a new pair of shoes to go along with my Spiderman shirt, I swear it was the happiest day of my life. I kept roaming around the house all day, anxiously waiting for abba jaan. Ammi had been laughing and admonishing me lightly for my impatience but I couldn’t help it. Finally someone knocked at the door, I scurried to open it, it was abba jaan of course and he had brought my uncle’s motorcycle just like he had promised. I was over the moon. 
I am an 8 year old, and this was my first motorcycle ride ever. I got to sit in the front, a little scared I was but it was worth it. We rode through the dimly lit streets of Iqbal town, the feeling…

Behind the Curtains Session 11: Dr Ramzan Assistant Professor Ophthalmology

Behind the CurtainsWith Dr. RamzanBy Haania Khan, Muhammad Salik, Unsa Athar, Muhammad Mohsin Ali & Muhammad SheharyarAfter joining KEMU as a student in 1976, Dr. Ramzan has devoted his whole life to the place he so loves. As Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology Unit I he has gained respect and admiration among the students, and has taught the likes of Professor Zahid Kamal. Sensing his impending retirment, the Kemunited team sought a session to record his thoughts about his alma mater, and what follows is the story of a person who thinks he was "Born in KEMU".

When did you come to K.E? I came to KE back in February  1976. Hailing from District Jhung, my admission was the first time I visited Lahore and the experience was memorable. How was your time at K.E? Very good. We were 5 boys from our class that came together to K.E. We were from a backward area therefore it took us some time to adjust here but after 5-6 months we were at home here and after that we proved our mett…

Study Material Reviews: Lecturio

Eesha Razia (2015-20) In this modern era of advancing research and technology, its an uphill task to keep up with the pace of the world. Especially the addition of discoveries and inventions into the archives of medical information knows no bounds. Relying on books to cope up with the contemporary studies has become obsolete. Carrying tons of books  around is not possible, leaving us with E-learning as the key source of study. But where to study from?

13 things you can do instead of studying in a lecture

(This list consist of hypothetical suggestions and doesn't imply or admit that ANONYMOUS writer has done any one or all of them)

1. Sleep Depending upon the teacher & the location you can do head down ,head-on-friend's-shoulder or good old fashioned sitting upright sleep. (The writer admits to being terribly inept at open-eyed sleep but the masters of craft should opt for that)

2. Facebook/Instagram/Snapchat/Twitter The long news feeds seem much more exciting in the class than at home. And if you have earphones Snapchat also offers a delightful option. (All this if you have wi-fi or 3G)
3. Episodes/Movies It is the most fun option but can also prove dangerous because you can get too involved (and may miss teacher coming to you.) 
4. Books The writer has hypothetically tried both physical and electronic options and most of the novels he/she has read in past years have been "not at home"
5. Games You can opt for Need for Speed ( the writer recommends Hot Pursuit and Most Wan…
