All you need to know about the Indian man who is 50 but looks 5

Basori Lal has now become a celebrity in his own village for being the shortest man in the village. The actual age fir Basori is 50 but looks like a 5 year old boy, standing at just 29 inches tall. The village is located in Madhya Pradesh province, India.


According to him, he was not always celebrated for his short stature - and had to overcome bullying in his younger years - but has now been dubbed a 'hero' by his proud family.

When asked if he had any problem concerning the stature, He said: '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.'

As a toddler there was nothing to distinguish Basori from his peers, and it was only around age five that his family started to notice he wasn't growing.

The family's economic situation meant that Basori was never given a medical diagnosis, and to this day his relatives have no idea what caused him to be so short.

Gopi said: 'Nobody was able to take him to a doctor. We are poor people, I am a labourer. Where would I take him?' As Basori grew older, he encountered some tough times and experienced some bullying in his village, but thankfully those days are past.

He said: 'People used to bully me a lot. They used to call me an alien. But that time is gone now. I am the only one who is being loved by the villagers.' Now, at the age of 50, Basori lives with his brother Gopi and Gopi's wife Satia.

He also works with his sister-in-law in a local factory, and she is keen to pay tribute to her tiny brother-in-law.

Satia, also aged 50, said: 'Basori is a man with positive thinking. He doesn't have any regret of being short. It doesn't bother him. 'All he needs is happiness, good people around him, and a good whiskey!' Now, Basori is content to spend his life living with his brother and working in the factory to earn more money for the family.
