LS mourns demise of former members, Hawking, security personnel

New Delhi, Mar 16 (UNI) The Lok Sabha on Friday condoled the demise of three former members -- Uttambhai Harjibhai Patel, Dr Bolla Bulli Ramaiah and Susheela Bangaru Laxman -- and renowned British Physicist and Cosmologist Stephen Hawking.
Speaker Sumitra Mahajan read out obituary references of the ex-members.
Patel, 90, passed away on January 30, 2018 in Valsad, Gujarat, Ramaiah on February 14, 2018 in West Godavari, Andhra Pradesh and Laxman died on March 8 this year in Hyderabad, Telangana, she said.

Patel was member in the 7th, 8th and 10th Lok Sabhas. He was Minister of State for Rural Development and member of Committee on the Welfare of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes.
Ms Mahajan said Ramaiah was members of 8th, 10th, 11th and 13th Lok Sabhas. He was Union Minister of State for Commerce. He was also member of Committee on Members of Parliament Local Development Scheme, Committee on Estimates, Committee on Public Undertakings and Committee on Industry.
Laxman was an active social workers and took interest in teaching the underprivileged children.
The Speaker said Prof Hawking , the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University, has made important theoretical contributions to gravitational theory and has played a major role in the development of cosmology and black hole physics.
She pointed out that Hawking had achieved so much in his life by braving through immense hardships and hurdles.
Hawking's early work, partly in collaboration with Roger Penrose, showed the significance of space time singularities for the big bang and black holes. His later work has been concerned with a deeper understanding of these two issues. The work required extensive use of the two great intellectual achievements of the first half of the Twentieth Century: general relativity and quantum mechanics; and these are reflected in the reprinted articles. Hawking's key contributions on black hole radiation and the no-boundary condition on the origin of the universe are included.

The Speaker also condemned the attack on nine CRPF jawans by Maoist rebels in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district on Tuesday and condoled the deaths of security personnel. She wished speedy recovery of the injured personnel.
The House observed silence for few moments in respect of the departed.
