This is how I felt from a bit short to tall to very tall from Bangalore to Siliguri to Falakata back in 2015. Isn't it crazy?

I remember in 2015, after I just got into 10th grade, we were going to our hometowns Siland Falakata for vacations. We went by flight from Bangalore to Bagdogra Airport of Siliguri. In the International airport of Bangalore, I was surprised seeing so many guys taller than me. Just a month before this, in school I was measured at 171 cm(5'7) but with my shoes on which adds 2 cm so I was 169 cm(5'6.5) barefoot. I remember many of them seemed like 5'10-6'2 and some even taller. Most of the tall ones were the males in their late teens, 20s, 30s and some in their 40s too and I was only 14. I also saw some middle aged white men from some Western country who were probably tourists to India and they too towered badly over me. Buy after we reached Bagdogra Airport in Siliguri, the last very tall person I saw was a guy who got down from the plane and he was 6'2-6'3 for sure. Then as we entered Siliguri,I saw people were mostly short and I was taller than many people honestly. I could feel tall in Siliguri and lots of my relatives were calling me tall. Then we went to Falakata by bus from Siliguri and noticed people are even shorter there. I mean I was shocked to see I was taller than literally everyone in Falakata. I never noticed how short people of Falakara were before 2015. I was surprised how short I felt in the Bangalore Airport and then after couple days I suddenly felt like so tall in Falakata haha.
