Cutting it short

india Updated: Jan 13, 2010 21:55 IST

Have you heard, Tom Cruise is the shortest sexiest man on the planet? This gives a bit of hope for all of us who are not vertically enhanced.

Oh, there you are, didn’t see you for a minute. I suppose, you’ll take this personally and tell us that height has nothing to do with success.

Well, I would not be too far off the mark there. I suppose you will dismiss Napolean who was not too long in his breeches, was he?

I still feel that you are way off the mark, it does not take being six-foot plus to contribute something to the world.
After all, people like Diego Maradona were not exactly towering around with the rest, were they?

I still feel that extra in the height could add few inches to one’s climb to success.

Obviously, you are not on top of things. Look at the Khans in India, each one shorter than the other.

You clearly are not one to feel that the long and short of things matter very much.

Yes, I don’t believe that you give an inch and take a mile.

Do say: Size does not matter at all.

Don’t say: Let’s take the highs and lows in our stride.
