Karan Singh, the boy from Meerut, Uttar Pradesh stands a staggering 6 feet 6 inches tall at the age of just 8 years. He is the tallest 8-year-old in the entire planet. He has broken records after record since his birth. He has a Guinness book of World Record to his name for being the tallest (63 cm) and heaviest baby (7.8 kg) born yet.
The mystery behind his height is said to be his ‘gene’ as his mother Shweatlana who is the tallest woman in India with the height of 7 feet 2 inches. Shweatlana is a former Indian basketball player and she has represented India in various national and international events. His father is also 6 feet 7 inch tall which makes his family one of the tallest in the world.
When Karan was three, he used to wear clothes of 10 years old, according to the reports. However, Karan does not feel uncomfortable with his height and feels proud of it. “I am always the tallest among my friends and it feels good,” Karan said.
His mother wants him to pursue basketball as a career because of his distinctive height which would be advantageous for Karan.
