At first glance, Basori Lal from Madhya Pradesh, India may look like a little boy but in reality, the man is 50-year-old. Lal’s height stopped growing at a very young age and he never grew past 29 inches. And today, he’s probably the shortest man alive. For years, he faced obstacles and became a victim of bullying but he always had the support of his extended family.
Lal lost his parents at a young age, after which he was raised by his uncle, however, due financial limitations, his family was never able to get him treated. In fact, to-date Lal’s condition is undiagnosed.
The little man has now become a local celebrity as numerous people visit him and like taking photos with him.
“People from different villages come to our house to see my brother, Lal’s brother said. “That’s a blessing for us. We feel proud that people love and care for Basori.”
Despite being looked down on in his early life, Lal doesn’t feel unhappy about his condition.
“I don’t have a problem with my height. I work, live and sleep like other people. I also eat like normal people. Whatever I am is okay. I don’t face any problems because of my height.”
