Dengue in Schools


So all educational institutions in Lahore have been closed down for 10 days starting from 15th September due to the deadly Dengue

Woaah…go back…All institutions? NO, no, no…not All…there’s one left and that is none other than King Edward Medical University…well yes, somehow it’s thought that we the kemcolians are made of thicker skin so dengue can’t affect us and thus no holidays for us at all…! Today, even UHS delayed the profs of all medical colleges but the administration of KE still didn’t budge….!

Seriously, it’s no laughing matter at all…! The dengue epidemic is a very serious one and more so in the present local conditions when dozens of people are dying daily around us. Therefore keeping all this in mind the Punjab Government had declared official holidays…I wonder why KE is not following this order…

Am i losing it?

OH it’s that dreaded time of the year…cell phones switched off, rooms locked, tables overflowing with books and me sleeping on my bed. Gosh…! What’s wrong with me? Why am I such an outcast? Just when all medical students and especially my fellow 2nd year kemcolians are busy cramming their text books…I’m busy catching up my sleep. And trust me, my sleeping habits have become so healthy, its not even funny! I sleep for 12 hours straight at night…and then doze off with my biochemistry books in my hands after every few minutes during the day

And what’s worse, it’s not even normal restful sleep. It’s that dreadful, restless “Rapid eye movement” sleep filled with nightmares of my impending doom – the Professional Part II…Oh God help me!

And phew! I just finished writing my shortest post yet on this blog!
