The Return Of Seventh Generation, 2011/12


Back again in the Kasr El-Ainy Medical School, Cairo with the university and lectures going on again…books piling up on the table…ahh, the tension of being a student has once again gripped our necks. Most of us would be wondering how are we going to perform this year, after quite a shocking fall out of performance for the 10/11 session, eh?

Hmm, well my dear colleagues, keep wondering.. because unless you do, I fear we might repeat last session history. What more, with the greater and far challenging tasks laying right ahead of us in the Fifth year studies. SOME of us might not worry, or better still, might be feeling relaxed despite knowing all these facts. Maybe they are ready but be warned, that dealing with expectations of all of Malaysians, our relatives, families n loved ones will not be easy unless of course, you are not aware of this fact!

Sometimes, we might wonder as to why are we fated to such a difficult task of caring and saving people’s lives, memorizing so many facts and consuming so much time trying to carve medicine into our heart and head!?? Some of us might have even accepted this destiny (we choose or chosen for us), but still, why do we still feel remorse? Why is it so excruciating sometimes…just in order to succeed our destiny?

Dear friends, I’m not going to tell you all solutions to these questions. Unfortunately, these are all questions that we all have to answer for ourselves, sooner or later. So for the time being, let us all think of what we CAN do for now ha! As the say goes

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery and Today is a PRESENT”.


In the end dear colleagues, it is what you do with the time given to you that defines who you are! Not what you think or say eh?!



Learning together, and attending lectures with our fellow Egyptians, is without a doubt a challenge that has been thrown by JPA a.k.a the government to us. Hmm, this sure is somewhat troublesome. Still, needless for me to say that as part of being a student, we should accept this challenge, adapt to it, and finally overcome it while at the same time proving to them of our capabilities. Keep in mind that this is also in the nature of Islam which supports the idea of seeking knowledge, no matter the language and environment.

Last but not least, be advised of our sixth generation seniors, on the overall result that they achieved for their fifth year study. Beware that unless we strive for excellence, we too are deemed to fall. Be warned…that until we do our best, we will only let ourselves down in the end. Even though there is a saying

“It is losers who always whines about their best, and it is the winners who runs with the prize”


Is it not effort what Allah always looks for? Was it not “niat” that Allah always looks for? Hmm?



Well then, with that said (written actually), we; High Council of Gen 7 Batch; had hoped to instill or light the FIRE within you ladies and gentlemen of the batch to always look forward and keep fighting for your survival. Hopefully we have done enough, and regardless of our position, we will keep on trying on your behalf and ours, to ensure our survival…forever…hopefully….InsyaAllah.

Finally, we would like to welcome you all back to studying here. Let us all pray that this year will be more fruitful that the last eh!

Tertulis di Dalam Tulang

Assalamualaikum

How are you all doing today? All vital signs are normal? Respiratory rate ok? No attacks of tachycardia? Sudden attacks of mood swing? Hungry all the times? Well, any of this symptoms still shouldn’t manifest right now, because final exam is in another one month and two weeks, which is the rightful time for all these pathognomonic signs of a medical student in distress should appear. Should any of you experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned before, afraid not, because that proves that you are already thinking (and maybe even having one or two nightmares about it) about the coming final exam. Congratulations, you are an early planner!! =)

Oh, the introduction is a bit off, isn’t it? Heheh. Actually, I have no idea on what to write about ever since the moment it has been decided that each members of Batch Committee should write an entry for each week to be published in this lovely blog of ours. But then, when it comes to my turn, we are currently studying Forensic and Toxicology. So I’m thinking, hey,why don’t I share with all of you about a very nice(in my opinion) novel regarding this subject we are now studying. So, here I go.



The novel is called Written in Bone, a work of Simon Beckett. There are two books in this series actually. The first one entitled The Chemistry of Death but I prefer the second book more. Why? I’ll tell you later. The main character in this novel will be Dr. David Hunter, a forensic anthropologist. What is forensic anthropologist?

According to wikipedia:
Forensic anthropology is the application of the science of physical anthropology and human osteology (the study of the human skeleton) in a legal setting, most often in criminal cases where the victim's remains are in the advanced stages of decomposition. A forensic anthropologist can also assist in the identification of deceased individuals whose remains are decomposed, burned, mutilated or otherwise unrecognizable.

The novel begins with a pretty nice introduction. Let me share it here with you. Ehemm2.

“Given the right temperature, everything burns. Wood. Clothing. People.”


Interesting right? No? Okay, let me proceed. For this second novel, Dr. David Hunter was assigned to investigate a case in the remote Hebridean island of Runa. A local called in reporting finding a corpse in an abandon hut, insisting for further investigation as the body was in a suspicious state. Suspecting the body belongs to nothing more than just a drunk or homeless people who finally met their final fate, Dr. Hunter flew in to Runa, to take a good look at the body before deciding whether it’s needed or not to fly a group of crime scene investigators into Runa for thorough investigation.

On reaching Runa, Dr. Hunter was brought to the crime scene. Here are some excerpts describing the state of the body.

“An untidy pile of greasy ash and cinders lay on the floor. The fire had consumed the bone as readily as it had skin and tissue. Only the larger bones remained, emerging from the ash like dead branches from snowdrift. Even this had been calcined, the carbon burned from them until they were grey and brittle. Presiding over them all like a broken eggshell was a skull, lying with its jawbone canted off to one side. And yet, apart from the body, nothing else in the room has been damaged. The fire that had all but incinerated a human being, reduced its bones to the consistency of pumice, had somehow done so without burning anything else nearby.”

“But that wasn’t the worst of it. What had shocked me to silence was the sight of two unburned feet and a single hand protruding from the ashes. The bones jutting from them were scorched to black sticks, yet they were completely unmarked’”

Got your interest piqued yet? That was only the beginning. More bodies appeared after that. Then an Atlantic storm descended, severing all power and contact with the mainland. So, as the story unfolds, more suspicious evidences showed up. Incident after incident happened forcing Dr Hunter to solve the case with very limited resources while competing against the killer. Trapped inside Runa and no way of communication whatsoever to reach the mainland to ask for help, it’s just a matter of time before the killer would strike again and take Dr. Hunter out of the quest.



Why I like this second novel more than the first one? Because the storyline is very complicated. When I was first finished reading this novel, I never thought it will end like that. Every chapter is explained brilliantly that it makes putting down the book is impossible unless you are done reading it. I’m sorry if my may of writing makes the book sounds dull, but believe me, this novel indeed is amazing. Heheh. A lot of interesting forensics facts can be found in this book, though not as much as our very own Forensic and Toxicology textbooks provide us.


Moral of the story, read textbook like your life depends on it. Just joking.=) So, if you already finish revising textbook and need escapism for a while from hard, cold facts, I think this book will be a nice getaway material.

That concludes my entry for this and only time. All the best for the coming and final year exam. And thank you for reading my scribbles.
