Body mass Index..
I am just 3 kilos more....
Type in your height and weight on a BMI calculator on the Internet and it will do it for you and tell you if you are over/under weight.

Here's one...

It's body mass index, a British system of measuring the fitness of health. No Indian can fit into that frame, because of our differing climatic conditions. Still, we maintain our own standards, wherein my weight is very much proportionate to my height making me look very impressive at the first sight itself :-)

Body Mass Index
Jeeto to Preeto, 'What I am worried about is not my weight but my height'.

Preeto: That's weird. But still, why?

Jeeto: According to my weight, my height should be 8 feet and 7 inches
