dear charan. Congrats, you are really doing good efforts to increase your height. keep it up. Also youadd stretch exercises like skipping, jumping, hanging on bars and toe touching. do not over do it. Exercise should not become painful and boring. Eat lots of calcium rich foods like milk, milk products, eggs and fish. Play natural games like basketball, swimming.

Dear Charan,
Unlike weight, we have a very less control over our height. It is most of the times determined genetically. However to ensure to provide a good nourishment to the body to grow to its maximum extent, a good diet and an exercise of atleast half an hour per day for 5 days/week would be quite sufficient. Do not exercise heavily as well.
