Shortest man in World - Chandra Bahadur Dangi of Nepal

Shortest man in the World is Chandra Bahadur Dangi of Nepal. A 72-year-old Nepalese man who is about the size of a toddler on Sunday became the world's shortest person ever recorded. A doctor and Guinness World Records official measured Chandra Bahadur Dangi to confirm his height of 21.5 inches (54.6 centimeters). Guinness official Craig Glenday presented Dangi with two certificates for being the world's shortest living man and the world's shortest person recorded in Guinness' 57-year history. He is declared shortest person ever.
"I am very happy. Now I want to travel across Nepal and to foreign countries," Dangi told reporters afterward. He said he has no desire to get married or have a family of his own, but would like to meet the prime minister of Nepal soon. Dangi lives in a remote mountain village, Rhimkholi, about 250 miles (400 kilometers) west of Katmandu, with his youngest brother and his family. His five brothers are all average height.
