Think Different

 As this slogan " Think Different " is associated with the Apple Inc. so I would start with what they say. "Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. - Apple Inc."
Well this article is not about the Apple company, it's about imagination, about think something which others would call madness, and it's about the belief that makes the difference.

Human history is full of such people who were called crazy, mad, absent minded, misfits, inappropriate in the society, but these very people changed the world as we know it. I am not going in detail about each person's life, I will just give few examples to show what "one person" can do.
Let's start with Albert Einstein. Well now a days every fifth grade kid knows who he was. He was pursued by his father to do electrical engineering, but he couldn't do it. Later on he wrote "The spirit of learning and creative thought were lost in strict rote learning ". He just didn't go on with what everybody else was going. He challenged it, and you see he proved it that he was right. When he left college, he must have been called crazy, fool and what not. But now he is known as "Genius", "the father of modern physics". This is what his belief, his struggle resulted in.
Now lets take a look upon the life of Walt Disney. I hope you are familiar with his name. A creative genius. I am taking his example because his field his totally opposite to the Elbert Einstein. Einstein was a person related to the field of science and engineering while Disney is the same genius but in the field of art. He struggled for his belief too, a really very hard struggle. He lost his job in the newspaper, just because they said that," you don't have creative skills". Funny isn't it? Now you see who created Micky Mouse, Donal Duck and what not. Every kid is familiar with his characters. Every kids loves Walt Disney Cartoons, and you know that Walt Disney studios is the world's biggest company which has produced tons of marvelous animated movies. You surely like The Lion King. So it is up to you to judge is this the person who had "no creative skills".
Now this is going to be my last example. The Wright Brothers, the ones who gave the world airplane. Lets imagine how the people would have treated them when they used to tell them that they are planning on building such a machine the can fly in the air. First the people must have laughed out loud , and then must have said " You fools , are you crazy, you think you can make something fly which is heavier than air ". But how they responded towards them, did they stop? No. They proved that something heavier than air can fly.  These two brothers were dropped out of school. But now you see that not only invented a machine to fly but they became the basis of a whole new field of studies,"Aeronautical Engineering". Imagine the world without airplanes.

These are just a few examples which I put in front of you. What I wanted to conclude is that one person can make a difference. His idea, his imagination, his struggle can change the world. Sometimes being different, thinking different may result in being known as abnormal person among the so called normal world, and you may be labelled as "crazy". But remember all the best persons who changed the world were called " crazy."  At the end I just want to quote Muhammad Ali Jinnah " Think 100 times before you take a decision, But once that decision is taken, stand by it as one man.
