Stature is a minor criterion for establishing identity. As per Quetelet’s law there is one
in four chances of two persons having exactly same height. This study of
anthropometric assessment of stature from the five digits of both hands in male and
female was carried out among 100 second year medical students (55 Females and 45
males) in Government Medical College, Suryapet, Telangana to determine the stature.
Prior consent from the participating students had been taken. The digit length of both
hands was measured from proximal crease of digit to the tip using a vernier caliper. The
individual height was measured by height measuring scale. The estimated height by
multiplying the total digital length with five (05) in both right and left hands were found
to be similar with the measured height. Pearson correlation analysis had suggested
highly positive statistically significant correlation between estimated height and
measured height in all participants, males and females. So, this can be concluded that
the equation may be helpful to obtain approximate stature in situations where mutilated
remains are to be examined and all digits are available. This equation could be useful in
forensic anthropology or any anthropological research.

Abstract: The article deals with the experiences of countries around the world in
studying the daily life of the military, the research of individual authors, research centers,
and scientific schools on the subject is analyzed. There is information on scientific
research, their methods and methodology on the study of the daily lives of servicemen in
the world from a military anthropological point of view. Furthermore researches on the
subject in terms of historical periods and geographical order are also studied on the basis
of comparative methods. The article describes the research conducted in Uzbekistan on the
life and daily life of the military, in particular, the research of historians in this area, based
on the sequence of historical periods. It provides information on the daily life, interests and

The purpose of the present study was to analyse the relation of body mass index with the performance of Taekwondo players. The subjects selected for this study were national taekwondo players. The data for this study was collected during senior national taekwondo championship 2018. The data for body mass index was caluculated by using the weight and height data of the players. The data collected then was analysed using Pearson product moment correlation coefficient at 0.05 level of significance. The results of the study showed significantnegative relationship between body mass index and the performances of taekwondo players.

The purpose of the study was to analyze the differences in certain circumferences and skin fold characteristics between fullback football and hockey players. This study was conducting on 60 football and hockey players with an aim to find out differences in selected anthropometric measurements between the fullbacks football (n=30) and fullbacks hockey (n=30). The data for the present study were collected in the inter college competition organized by Himachal Pradesh University, during the session 2011-2012. Each athlete was tested for various anthropometric characteristics necessary for estimation of chest, hip, thigh and calf circumference and biceps, triceps, sub scapular, supera iliac, thigh and calf skinfold measurements of fullback footballers and hockey players. To analyze the difference in these anthropometric measurements between two groups of football and hockey players were determined through ‘t’ test. From the findings, it has been found that the fullbacks of football game have depicted somewhat higher mean value for chest circumference, hip circumference, thigh circumference and calf circumference as compared to fullbacks of hockey game. In skinfold measurements, it has been found that fullbacks of hockey game possessed significantly greater biceps skinfold and suprailiac skinfold than football players. In triceps skinfold, sub scapular skinfold, thigh and calf skinfolld there exist no significant difference between football and hockey players.
