Guinness Book of Records usually come with spectacular stuffs and records that keep him wow. This time is an 8-year-old boy identified as Karan, from Meerut in India, 6ft 6inch tall and pillars above some of his seniors as well as his classmates who made it into the record book.
He is a healthy child and does everything his classmates do – He is regularly taken to an endocrinologist and so far nothing abnormal has been noted in his development.
The only challenge with his height is getting clothes and shoes that fit and so they are made specially by a tailor as it’s almost impossible to find his size in the market.
The boy, got his height from his Basketball Player mum who is quite taller than him but he hopes to play basketball like his mother and began to receive training from her since he was five.
He hopes to grow even taller than his mother and he intends to use his height in deciding his future career.
“But if I have to choose between becoming a doctor and a basketball player, I will choose basketball for sure.”
His 33-year-old mum, Shweatlana, who stands at 7ft 2in is India’s tallest woman and has represented India in numerous national and international sports events.
“My clothes have to be stitched specially. I don’t even find bangles or sandals in my size. Now we get Karan’s clothes tailor made as well.”
His 41-year-old father, Sanjay, is also tall and stands at 6ft 6in, the same height as his eight-year-old son.
