Stephen Hawking once said, “Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.” Stephen Hawking, an exceptional human being and an even more incredible scientist, breathed his last on March 14, 2018. As the world bids this prodigy farewell, let’s remember Hawking and how he broke boundaries with his mind. He was suffering from Motor neuron disease. This is basically a condition in which a person body parts get paralysed with time & a person can survive maximum 6 – 7 years. Stephen Hawking may have beenbe in a wheelchair, and may have had to speak through a synthesizer, but he has nonetheless overcome an obstacle doctors never thought he would – to live for 48 years. Not only has Hawking overcome a monumental obstacle; he has done so exceptionally, becoming a role model. He discovered his disease at tender age of 20’s which shattered him. But slowly and steadily, he recovered and decided not to give up and do his best till he was living. He is the first to set forth a theory of cosmology. He embodies the importance of taking obstacles in one’s stride. This disease and condition actually changed his outlook towards life. He lives life at its best even in the worst condition he is facing. This phenomenal man is a reminder that behind every twist and turn in life a challenge awaits. The only thing that matters is how we choose handle it. Stephen Hawking taught me not to give up on your hopes, on your aspirations, and more importantly on life.
