Shortest person in the world – Khagendra from Nepal

A tiny guy with long name – Khagendra Thapa Magar, has just turned 18 today, on October 14, 2010.

To hand over his 18th birthday present, the title of the World’s Shortest Man, Guinness World Records Book team has gone to Nepal.

I wrote about Khagendra back in 2007 when He Pingping, the shortest man then, met the tallest man of that time Bao Xishun. At that time, he was told to be only 50 cm tall. It sure is a very slow growth rate at 17 cm in three years, as he measures 67 cm now.
