Ever wondered how the world would look if everything around appeared topsy turvy? Just ask Bojana Danilovic, a Serbian woman who has always see it that way!

Born with a rare brain condition that experts from Harvard University and The Massachusetts Institute of Technology call spatial orientation phenomenon, the 28-year old sees everything just like a normal person would. However, for reasons nobody has been able to determine, her brain turns it all, upside down!

While there are a few people in the world with a similar affliction, their issues are limited to how they write or read. In Bojana's case it is so bad that as a baby she even crawled and walked in reverse and while she now walks normally, it took a lot of practice to get it right. Unfortunately, no amount of practice could get her writing or reading in a normal fashion.

So how does this amazing woman get through her day? By turning everything from newspapers to the computer and keyboard at work to even, holding her mobile phone upside down. As for television? Her family has two - One mounted atop the other! Hers of course is upside down.

              They said they hope she lives a normal life. As in happy and healthy. Sometimes different is bad.
