外文标题：Meet the 5-year-old boy who’s already 5 feet 7 inches tall
MEERUT: Karan Singh's parents were a worried duo when he started school. He was to enter kindergarten, but was already five feet tall.
"When he started school, kids would run away from him. With time, the kids got used to him and now he has many friends," says Sanjay Singh, Karan's father. Karan holds the Guinness World Records for being the tallest for his age — in a few months, he will turn six years of age and he stands 5 feet 7 inches tall. He's not alone though. His 25-year-old mother, Shweatlana Singh, is 7 feet 2 inches tall. What's more, the family claims she is still growing — at about four inches every two years. Until 2012, she held the Guinness record for being India's tallest woman. Siddiqa Parveen, from West Bengal, at 8 feet and 2 inches, replaced her.
“刚上学时，孩子们看到他就跑开。随着时间的推移，孩子们开始习惯了他，现在他有了许多朋友，”卡伦的父亲Sanjay Singh如是说。目前，卡伦保持着同龄人身高最高的吉尼斯世界记录。几个月后，他将年满6岁，现在身高5英尺7英寸（三泰虎注：170.18厘米）。不过，卡伦并不孤单，他25岁的母亲Shweatlana Singh身高7英尺2英寸（注：218.44厘米）。而且，家人说她仍在长高——平均每年长高大约4英寸（注：大约10厘米）。在2012年之前，她保持着印度最高女人的吉尼斯记录，后来身高8英尺2英寸（三泰虎注：248.92厘米）、来自西孟加拉邦的Siddiqa Parveen取代了她。
Sanjay, a dietician, recalls that he fell in love with her in a Bangalore college. They married in 2007. At 6 feet 6 inches, he says, "Both of us are perfect for each other."
Meerut-based Harish Mohan Rastogi, a doctor who has studied human growth, says it was hard to imagine that at 25, Shweatlana continued to grow. "Epiphysis, the process that aids the growth of bones, ends by about 21 years of age. In some cases, because of excessive release of a growth hormone, a person's height might increase up till the age of 25," he said. Interestingly, the mother and son are also blessed with an acute sense of hearing. "They can hear sounds from far away," Sanjay claims.
密鲁特的一位研究人类发育的医生Harish Mohan Rastogi称，难以想象25岁的Shweatlana仍然在长高。“骨骺，帮助骨骼增长的过程，大约于21岁时结束。某些情况下，由于过量分泌荷尔蒙，人的身高可能会到了25岁仍然在长。”有趣的是，母亲和儿子的听觉都非常敏锐。“他们很远就能听到声音。”
