“Remember to look up at the stars” – Stephen Hawking

“Remember to look up at the stars. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem there is always something you can do and succeed at.”

Stephen Hawking


Today, one of the most brilliant minds of our time passed away: Professor Stephen Hawking died this morning at the age of 76.

GCE student Nikunj Pathak penned a poem to honor this extraordinary and inspiring man.

A tribute to  Stephan Hawking

He asked how and why,
What is hidden in the sky,
Who are the stars so bright,
Why they glitter in the night,


From the theory of Big Bang,
How universe formed and sank,
Explaining math physic rule,
Little Einstein of the school,


When the body paralyze,
Doctors feel he won’t survive,
Ignoring physical bind,
He romanced with science,


In a brief history of time,
He enlightened many minds,
From his radiations on the black hole,
Science and theories were retold,
He asked how and why,
What is hidden in the sky…
