Why are Girls so.....

I remember my friend asking me if I have found my Jaya Bhaduri yet, I replied in negative almost giving off a sheepish smile. The conversation took place a few years back and now when I think of it, I might have to settle down for Jaya Bhaduri instead of Aishwariya Rai.

I am not sure if any of you have observed it, but I found that most of the girls are of short stature. There will be only a handful who are above the 5.5' height. I first noticed this when I was in college, where the girls outnumbered the boys in my class. Apart from that all of them could have easily pass of as school students given their short heights.

The average height of an Indian female comes at 5.4' while for the male it stands at 5.7'. I wonder what makes the Indian girl so short. Though I do find that the old generation women were of a good height, it is the today's generation (in their 20's) who are so short in height!!

The trend has definitely not changed. There are very few girls above the average height say 5.7'. The other day, I was standing in a queue to buy forms for a entrance exams where I saw this pretty girl standing way ahead of me, who seem to have just completed her graduation. The girl hardly made it to five feet tall. I found that none of the girls in the queue were even above the average height.

I am wondering if the taller girls have become a rare species these days. I have given up the thought of whom I end up with i.e., Jaya or Aishwariya. What matters is a good heart and not some height to measure them with. The one for whom you will fall for, will always be truly exceptional.

P.S.: In case you are wondering what my height is, I stand at 6.2'

Yup, that's true :D

Well Indian in general are short in stature.

It's mostly genetic I think and also of course there are environmental influences etc. Of course if you are so much taller than the male average (5.7 is short for men in general I would guess), then you will obviously find women of average height to be too short.

Good luck in your search.

You should have read the fine print. It might be, but what should tall guys like me should do?
