New Delhi : What is a perfect body? Simplest answer would be a satisfying body. But a class 12th textbook meant for Central Board of secondary Education (CBSE) students has slammed all the speculations to rest, declaring the most celebrated as 36-24-36 figure. Infact claimed ‘’best body’’ for females.  Even Miss World and Miss Universe pageants take this shape into consideration while judging the contestants, the textbook says.

An image of the section of the textbook comparing the physical and anatomical differences between males and females was initially posted on social media by a Twitter user named Anuj Khurana.

Speculations are not over yet. The textbook further claims that when it comes to males, the ‘’V’’ body shape is considered the best.

According to The News Minute, the textbook has published by the New Saraswati House and not the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), which usually brings out textbooks used in CBSE schools.

After reports of the textbook started coming to light, the CBSE issued a clarification saying schools must take responsibility if they choose to include books of private publishers in their curriculum.
