Don’t jump over me! I won’t grow any taller!

Ever heard of this before? Then, you’re not the only one. This morning, Twitter was buzzing with tweets about the ‘Worst Childhood Rumours’.

NewsGram brings you the top five worst childhood rumours:

1.“Don’t eat fruits with their seeds. The tree will start to grow inside you.”

2. “If you leave your slippers upside down, you’ll get in a fight.”

3. “If you blow off a fallen eyelash from the back of your hand and make a wish, it will come true.”

4. “If you wave at a passing airplane, the people inside will wave back at you.”

5. “Undertaker has died multiple times and he has the power to come back from the dead.”

The wild imagination of childhood has no limits. Anything and everything can appear true and even the most absurd tales can be passed on as truths with honest sincerity. Some of these stay with us throughout life as laughable memoirs of the golden days.

So, how many do you still believe in?

Neeraj Chopra was born on December 24, 1997, in Khandra village in Haryana's Panipat district. He grew up in a Haryanavi family of farmers. He is the brother of two sisters. He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree. Chopra was bullied due to his obesity as a kid, which prompted his father to enroll him in a nearby gym.

When the 13-year-old Chopra finished training under Jaiveer for a year, he was enrolled at the Tau Devi Lal Sports Complex in Panchkula, where he began training under coach Naseem Ahmed.
