No its, not unusual that, crows sit on our roof. But it's unusual that, they let me click them. :)

“If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.” -Jim Rohn 

There are two ways to look at things in life; which are nothing is unusual or everything is unusual. It’s all about how a person thinks. I always believe those things which are unusual; need to be appreciated, need to be awarded. Because they are different and most importantly they are not ordinary.

It's a really unusual view to see a railway platform in India with out crowd. But here I got one, while I was travelling.

All the famous writings, all the famous movies, all the famous paintings, all the inventions got the recognition because they are unusual. When we talk about love stories, none of us talk about our own love stories or the love stories we come across in our daily lives. Rather we choose to talk about love stories like- Laila Majnoo, Romeo and juliet, Heer Ranjha, Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal. But the question is why we choose to talk about those love stories, which none of us has ever seen or experienced. It’s simply because they are unusual. It’s because those few people chose to define love in their own ways.

It's unusal that, you will see a cat breast feeding her one year old child. But see my two wonderful family member here in an unusual place also. :)

Some world famous scientist invented those things, which  looked near to impossible  by that time. But why only those few people invented those wonderful things, where as there are millions of others scientists were there in various parts of the world. The reason is quite simple- they had one thing, which others did not have. That was- Unusual imagination.

Nothing new or unique can’t be created, until and unless the person who has the desire to create it has the ability to think something new, something different and something that has a purpose. People may term their thoughts as  unusual; but why to worry- if unusual thoughts give birth to some wonderful and useful things. Then it’s all good.

I know in this post, the pictures and words have nothing common other than, they both define the term “Unusual”. So yes, it’s an unusual post; but as I have said you before, “any thing that is unusual needs to be appreciated”. :)

“Familiar things happen, and mankind does not bother about them. It requires a very unusual mind to undertake the analysis of the obvious. “   -Alfred North Whitehead 

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead. :)
