What kind of people can be found on the planet - different colors of skin, eyes, hair, a huge number of national languages, cultures and much more. Very original people are sometimes found in this flower garden - for example, one of them is the shortest man in the world - Chandra Bahadur Dangi.
Chandra Bahadur Dangi was born and lived all his life in the remote Nepalese village of Rimholi, which is located 540 kilometers southwest of the capital of Nepal - Kathmandu. The height of a seventy-two-year-old man is only fifty-six centimeters - while his record is also in age, because rarely any of the stunted people live to be seventy-two years old. The Nepalese record holder lost his parents as a child - since then he has lived with seven sisters and brothers.
Dangi's record is recorded in the Guinness Book of Records and has broken all such achievements in fifty-seven years.
The growth of Chandra Bahadur is so small that he does not even need a chair - he is seated directly on the table, where he can calmly reach for food. The previous record holders in terms of low growth were the Filipino Janrei Balawin, whose height was sixty centimeters, as well as Tapa Magar Hagendra, who was sixty-seven centimeters tall. The weight of Chandra himself is only twelve kilograms, so relatives easily carry the little pensioner on their backs throughout the village.
The life of the shortest man
At seventy-two years old, Chandra Bahadur Dangi is a very active and ambitious person. He dreams of worldwide fame, which will allow him to travel around the world and make many new acquaintances. According to Chandra himself, he never took medications, did not see a single doctor in his eyes, and to this day he is in excellent health. Therefore, for many fellow villagers, the growth of a unique neighbor is a mystery and a secret behind seven seals.
According to experts, the cause of the dwarfism of the Nepalese is such a disease that leads to stunting as primary dwarfism.
Chandra Bahadur has never been married - today he lives with his older brother's family and is engaged in housekeeping, since his small stature does not allow him to find a permanent job. Chandra has five siblings who have a completely normal average height, so a short man always had someone to protect from attacks and offensive words. Before the recognition of the record, Chandra Bahadur Dangi never left his native village, so a trip to the Nepalese capital Kathmandu was a real discovery for him and his first exit into the big world.
