Some people are blessed with good height while for some height becomes a very uncomfortable topic of discussion. Does that mean that they do not realize that we as human beings don’t have much role to play in how tall or how short we are? The short answer for this is NO, they do! People are well aware of the fact that our height is not in our hands and therefore how short or tall we are does not define us. But society’s stringent ideas of beauty and the stereotypes that come with it overpower these rational thoughts. 

A person’s height is 70% to 80% accredited to their genes and a mere 20% to external factors like food and nutrition. Thereby, only 20% of the whole ordeal regarding our heights lies in our favor. In some cases, maybe even that is not possible. But we intend to sound positive here.
