The Uncommon Box (TUB), a pannier with uncommon stuff from our very own common surroundings. We generally say that things around us are common, but we forget that the uncommon and exceptional comes from the common itself. Everything in this world whether it’s nature, people or society is unique in its own way or has their own speciality; it’s just the matter of realizing and appreciating it. We are here with our thoughts which are picked up from the common setting. We believe in that special or uncommon which is hidden or unnoticed in our routine hectic life.
