THE HINDU A Nepalese teenager, Khagendra Thapa Magar, who is just 25.8 inches tall has entered the Guinness Book of
World Records as the world’s shortest man. He celebrated his 18th birthday recently. Magar, the son of a fruit seller from rural Nepal, who dreams of marrying and travelling the world in his wife’s handbag, will receive his official Guinness World Records certificate in a short ceremony. In Pokhara, a lakeside town popular with tourists, shouts of recognition greeted the teenager wherever he went, and Magar’s father said his son was enjoying the attention.
