Methodology: Make a person stand straight, take a thread and measure the height from head to toes. Now cut the thread and take the measurement of your middle finger phalanges – 2nd Phalanges /2 portion of a finger.

The unit in Anga Vidya is measured as “Angul”. Here angul refers from Anguli mean finger.

Now, if the Thread is measuring to 108 Anguls then it is said to be the best measurement in Anga Vidya. If it is measuring 100 Angul then it is called as Madhyam and if it is 90 Angul then it is Nikruth.

Few Scholars considered 100 Angul as Best (Uttamkoti Purusha) , 96 Angul as Madhayama and 84 Anguls as NikruthaKoti.

According to Unmaan, 108 Angul is said to be the Best human who attains Name, Fame and High position in Society. He/she has a healthy and prosperous life.

Madhayam means those who live life as a Normal human with limited resources and get its survival within limited time and money. These people don’t think about long term goals. They want to live within their own shell and do not like to take risks in their life.

Nikruth mean those humans who are always looking for material gain and sex, their life motto is only food, shelter and sex. They are said to be under the category of Animal – PashuVruti.Just as an animal does not think and act, similarly these people do not think, neither they have wisdom and knowledge. Hence they have been classified as NikruthKoti Purusha.

Maan: (Weight): Here it means the height of the individual. In traditional Anga Vidya – genderwise, boys below 25 and girls below are not considered to take height for measurement in Unmaan.

Anga Vidya says those whose body weight is “DedhaBhar” are said to be best human and they will always be respected in society and nation as a whole. They get dignity and high position in politics.

Those whose body weight is“EkBhar” are said to have a good flow of money and they live a luxurious lifestyle.

A person having  ”ÁdhaBhar” as body weight is said to have the life with limited resources and live with all the needs he/she desires. But it is limited to the lifestyle and money matter. Here we can refer to Middle-Class People in modern times.

Person weight measuring less than “ÁdhaBhar” are said to live the life of sorrow, misery and depression.
