Why Indians are getting shorter; An article was published in 1998 that talks about a strange phenomenon. The writer says that when while visiting the buildings in Philadelphia and Boston that were built during the 1700s. He noticed that the door sealing was very short. let’s see why Indians are getting shorter?

History Behind the Heights of Human

Basically, he is trying to say that before the 20th century, the door ceilings were constructed for humans in short heights. Several studies have shown and proved that the average height of human beings has been increasing since the 20th century. While the average height of human beings is increasing the opposite is being observed in India. For example, the average height of men across different ages has decreased between 1998 and 2005.

How was the Study Done on Heights?

It is not surprising that Indians are shorter than most of the citizens of Western countries. In factory among the shortest women age 22-23, India ranks 9th in the world. To compare the height of this generation, we can either relate it with other countries or with Indians of the previous generation. But unfortunately, India is not doing well in both matrics.

With respect to the other country is India was an Orange country that is it was in the middle for both men and women. But in 1996 it became a red country that is a country with lower height compare to others. For this purpose, we can use the latest research published by JNU as well as research published in 2016 by three scholars. Both rely on the survey conducted by the Ministry of health and welfare cold the national family and health survey or NFHS. The research paper of JNU showed that the average heights of women increase from 1998 till 2005. But between 2005 and 2015 minute dip was seen in the height of women in the age group of 15 to 26 by around 0.12cm.

There has been a lot of discussion regarding the problem of height growth in children, a phenomenon known as stunting. The middle rich and rich countries have seen an upward trend in height growth. It tells us that however important genetics might be. For children to manifest their potential in a suitable socio-economic environment is necessary too. Many papers show that communities belonging to poor socio-economic environments are witness stunning.

Reason for Decreasing Heights of Indians

There can be several factors, but researchers point out the absence of an integrated child development services scheme for boys. Young man Lake structured scheme as mid-day meal only cater to children till the age of 10. Second, the average height of women increased between 2005 and 2015 and that of women in the 15 to 25 years age bracket deadline. We believe that liberalization benefits Indians and the Indian economy. But it didn’t benefit, everyone. During the depression, IMF comes with conditions, when given loan to Indian i.e it asks India to cut down its fiscal deficit.
