When I made the biggest series on height , and the queries related to it. I also wrote an entire eBook(HEIGHT INCREASE – THE BITTER TRUTH/हाइट इनक्रीज़ – ए किलर ट्रुथ) on it , and tried to bust every possible myth related to it, based on proper evidence and research. I explained what factors may affect your height growth, and why most others don’t.
Till date not even a single person has able to give me any counter evidence against any point when I speak in terms of research and proof.
I really don’t understand; what people think I am gaining by hiding some facts from you. For e.g. if there is a method or an herb or any other substance which proves to be effective for height gain, on basis of solid scientific research, won’t me being an entrepreneur, provide that thing to you, and make profit out of it?? But that’s not how I do business.
And primarily two kind of people are never happy with what I say:
- Of course, people who had made bull… claims about height increase,or whose entire income source is through selling bogus height increase products.
People who claim some homeopathic medicine will work, playing basketball will increase your height, some dot meditation will increase your height, some bamboo murabba and camel milk will increase your height, and what not.
- Youngsters who are immature to understand the difference between truth and bull…. Who think if something is true, then its demotivating. Who are happy being told sweet lies, and don’t even the basic processes of human body.
Let me first give you a small list of names, who may be the most useless people in the world. WHY? Because their height is a bit shorter in comparison with some of the other people:
- Martin Luther King Junior – 5’7”
- Bruce lee – 5’7”
- Winston Churchill – 5’7”
- Napoleon Bonaparte – 5’6”
- Robert Downey Jr – 5’8”
- Charlie Chaplin – 5’5”
- Yuri Gagarin – 5’2”
- Tom Cruise – 5’7”
- Pablo Picasso – 5’4”
- Daniel Radcliffe – 5’5”
- Genghis Khan – 5’1”
- Lionel Messi – 5’7”
- Maradona – 5’5”
- Steven Spielberg – 5’7”
- Alexander the Great – 5’6”
- Jet Li – 5’6”
- Sergey Brin – 5’8”
- George Armani – 5’8”
- Isaac Newton – 5’6”
- Sachin Tendulkar – 5’5”
- Bajrang Punia – 5’5”
- Yogeshwar Dutt – 5’6”
- Aamir Khan – 5’6”
- Rajnikanth – 5’8”
- Narayan Murthy – 5’4”
- Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam – 5’4”
- Salman khan – 5’6”
- Govinda – 5’6”
- Shahid Kapoor – 5’7”
- Shahrukh Khan – 5’7”
- Jeff bezos – 5’8”
- Bill gates – 5’9”
- Mark Zuckerberg – 5’7”
- Jack Ma – 4’11”
- Satya Nadella – 5’7”
The list is virtually endless.
Now ask yourself these questions:
- Did these people lacked proper nutrition?
- Did they lack experts who could have helped them in growing their height?
- Did they lack the money or resource to buy growth hormone injections, height growth supplement, or camel milk, or bamboo murabba.
- Did they not sleep properly?
- Or did they not play adequate basketball?
- Or I think no one told them about yoga or dot meditation.
Now let’s clear the other doubts, which came in despite of me clearing all of them:
It’s clearly proven that no sports will increase your height. There are top champion sportsmen in every sport who are both short heighted and tall.
I told one very clear statement that ‘you don’t grow tall by playing basketball. Tall kids are chosen for that sport, due to the demand of that sport”.
Though I proved it with proper studies, let me give you a stronger evidence. Here are the names of some of the shortest NBA players, whose heights ranged from as short as 5’3” to 5’11”.
- Tyrone Curtis Bogues
- Earl Boykins
- Calvin Murphy
- Nate Robinson
- Anthony Webb
- Michael Adams
- Avery Johnson
- Allen Iversion
- Chris Paul
What happened to them? Didn’t the basketball height theory work for the world’s top NBA players??
Then there is another self-made ideology. If you do sprints, you would develop microfractures in your bones and it will make you grow.
If you have Usain Bolt, which is an exception in short sprints, there are champions like Maurice Greene (2000 100m Olympic gold medalist), with a height of 5’9”.
If PV Sindhu is 5’10”, then Saina Nehwal is app. 5’5”, and P. Kashyap is 5’8”.
Height of world’s top swimming champions can range from 5’5” to over 6’5”
Now if you open the best of swimming or basketball websites, not even a single website talks about how to increase your height, and instead tell you clearly that you cannot increase your height with sports, and how to master the game, if you are short heighted, by focusing on your technique, speed,strength, agility etc.
Please go to your nearby stadium and see the top players and every sport,and notice how some are short heighted and some are tall. But that doesn’t make them a champion.
Now, let’s talk about the average height of Indians. The new average height for Indian men is 5.8 feet (177 cm), and that for women is 5.3 feet (162 cm)(click here to know more).
The world’s tallest people are people from Netherlands, or Dutch, whose average height is 6 feet (182.9 cm) for men and 5.55 feet (169.3 cm) for women (know more).
Here is the list of average height of men and women in the world (click here).
I got into the defense forces, when I was app. 18yrs of age, and have done extremes of training in the forces. I haven’t seen anyone growing taller, as we have officers and men of all heights, depending on their region and genetics.
That’s why, where the average height needed for getting into the National Defence Academy is min. 157cm (5’2”), and 5cm less for Gorkhas, and candidates belonging to hills of North-Eastern areas of India, Garhwal, and Kumaon, i.e. 152cm (4’11”).
Now, comes the last name which some youngsters have learnt Rustom Akhmetov, who has increased his height dramatically. And at the end of the day, what are the reasons stated. Same old reasons which have shown no relation to height increase, and not even a single evidence of any kind.
If there would have been any such methods available, won’t the world’s top pharma companies or even the government body patent the technique or method? And won’t that be sold at large profits?
Therefore, I request all these youngsters to stop wasting their energies on height growth, and focus on your career, your fitness and your over mental and personality development.
