Superheros are not born - they are made!

Dear Students,
All of you fall into a situation of 'If' many times in your life. This 'If' leads many to failures. But it is not necessary that 'If' will lead to failure always, 'If' can lead you to success also. And this difference between failure or success due to 'If' depends only on your approach on how do you take this 'If' in your life. 

Being students you fail many times in the examination and you feel that you could not do because you do not get time to study, your surroundings are not supportive, If you could have a better primary education you could crack the exams easily right now, If you had good financial condition then you could do many a things and many more 'If's' come in life. But speaking is easy and doing is difficult. And those who take this 'If' positively and work for it become finally successful. Every successful person has many 'If's' in their life. So, we are starting this "If..? - that creates winners" series. Today we are going to discuss about the story of a paralyzed scientist Stefen's Hawkings, who needs computerized system even to speak and express his thought has provided many important theories in cosmology and has provided new regime to modern Physics.

In the same Universe, in the same world and on the same earth, there are so many types of persons. Some persons who are deprived of even their body parts by nature, do what millions of healthy, fit and smart person do not dare to do. Are the former ones more capable than latter ones? Is it so? Has god provided some magic sticks to them?
If they can do....then why can't you?

The eldest of Frank and Isobel Hawking's four children, Stephen William Hawking was born on the 300th anniversary of the death of Galileo on January 8, 1942. He was born in Oxford, England, into a family of thinkers. His Scottish mother had earned her way into Oxford University in the 1930s—a time when few women were able to go to college. His father, another Oxford graduate, was a respected medical researcher with a specialty in tropical diseases.

But see the curse of nature.....I don't know whether to call it a curse or a boon, but the son of medical specialist in tropical diseases got trapped into a amyotrophic lateral sclerosis disorder which ruined his body at the age of 21 only. Starting with the twisting of muscles, the diseases affects all the parts of the body. Research suggests that the person with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis disease can hardly survive for 2-3 more years. 

Where there is a will there is a way! Even after being trapped in the disease at the age of 21, Stefen's Hawkin's celebrated his 74th birthday this year - 2016. He is having children and grand children as well.

So, aren't you strong enough to qualify even an Examination? Why not? Ask the question to yourself until you get the answer. You will surely get the answer,
'Yes! I can!'

At the age of eleven, Stephen went to St. Albans School and then on to University College, Oxford; his father's old college. Stephen wanted to study Mathematics, although his father would have preferred medicine. Mathematics was not available at University College, so he pursued Physics instead. After three years and not very much work, he was awarded a first class honours degree in Natural Science.

Stephen then went on to Cambridge to do research in Cosmology, there being no one working in that area in Oxford at the time.

Early in his academic life, Hawking, while recognized as bright, was not an exceptional student. During his first year at St. Albans School, he was third from the bottom of his class. He was never higher than the middle of class in terms of grades. But Hawking focused on pursuits outside of school; he loved board games, and he and a few close friends created new games of their own. During his teens, Hawking, along with several friends, constructed a computer out of recycled parts for solving rudimentary mathematical equations.

So, students, it is not necessary to be a topper always to do good in your life. A mediocre, a weak student can also become master of something if he realises his interest. No one is weak, you just need to have an interest!

While Hawking first began to notice problems with his physical health while he was at Oxford—on occasion he would trip and fall, or slur his speech—he didn't look into the problem until 1963, during his first year at Cambridge. For the most part, Hawking had kept these symptoms to himself. But when his father took notice of the condition, he took Hawking to see a doctor. The nerves that controlled his muscles were shutting down. Doctors gave him two and a half years to live.

Not long after he was released from the hospital, Hawking had a dream that he was going to be executed. He said this dream made him realize that there were still things to do with his life.
Before the diagnosis, Hawking hadn't always focused on his studies. He was even very bored with his life. There had not seemed to be anything worth doing. But, With the sudden realization that he might not even live long enough to earn his PhD, Hawking poured himself into his work and research.

So, sometimes, it happens that we realize ourselves and our strengths when we come to know that very little time is left with us. If you realize it before you can obviously do more and in a better way. 

He competed his PhD and gave many important theories in the field of Cosmology and Physics. But his most known theory is about Black Holes. This research turned him into a celebrity within the scientific world when he showed that black holes aren't the information vacuums that scientists had thought they were. In simple terms, Hawking demonstrated that matter, in the form of radiation, can escape the gravitational force of a collapsed star. Hawking demonstrated that our universe had its origins in a singularity. In the beginning all of the matter in the universe was concentrated in a single point, making a very small but tremendously dense body. Ten to twenty billion years ago that body exploded in a big bang that initiated time and the universe. Hawking was able to produce current astrophysical (having to do with the study of stars and the events that occur around them) research to support the big bang theory of the origin of the universe and oppose the competing steady-state theory.
The life story of Mr. Stefen's Hawkings is really inspiring. If a person sitting on the wheel Chair, using Computerized system to even speak can do so many important discoveries, can provide lectures to thousands of students, can defeat the deadly disease and survive for years, then you too can achieve whatever you wish to. You can surely reach you destination if you have zeal to do that!

God bless you Stefen! Live Long!

All the best Students! Make us PROUD! We wish for your SUCCESS!
