Toast to Mr Hawking

I woke up to a shocking news today. I bet half of the world did too.

When I saw Farhan Akhtar's tweet:

I was left in awe. Can this really be true?

I mean no disrespect to Farhan but given the tide of hoaxes that go around the internet, it's better to cross check any news. A few days ago there was news about Sylvester Stallone and Henry Cavill dying while they're alive and kicking.

Stephen Hawking has always been my favourite physicist. From his mind-boggling computer to Hawking Radiation, everything of his struck me as something of pure brilliance.

He was indeed a brilliant man. One of the best minds that this world has ever witnessed.

However, his mind wasn't the only thing to be praised. His endless willpower was extraordinary. Most people in his condition would've given up way too early. Mr Hawking carried on remarkably long to gift this world of his wisdom and beautiful theories.

This loss is similar to a black hole to us. The void can never be filled.

Wherever you're in the cosmos, Sir, may you find peace and the freedom to roam around quasars and wormholes and continue exploring nature's secrets.

To the one who made physics seem less boring to me. RIP, Sir.

We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.
