Caucasian migration: Anatomical evidence
Dr. Rakesh Mani
The facial index is the length of the face from the root of the nose to the bottom of the chin, expressed as a percentage of the greatest breadth across the cheekbones. Racial differences are much more marked in relation to face than elsewhere, so it is very useful anthropologically. For this hundred males from Pushkarna Brahmin community between the age group of 18-35 years were taken and their facial index was calculated. The result indicated that average facial index in Pushkarna Brahmin individuals was 95.86. Mostly they were hyperleptoprosopic. The average facial index of Pushkarna Brahmin individuals was very close to North European and Nigerian population, indicating their racial similarities.
