Remember turning 18? I don’t. I was probably plowing my land or carrying some hefty load of fodder, when I did. But for some turning 18 is the biggest day in their life.
Khagendra Thapa Magar turned 18 two days ago on 14 October, 2010.
Khagendra the worlds shortest man from our own country Nepal turned 18 and the whole world is watching him. He has been measured to be 26.4 inch tall which entitled him to be the shortest man in the world. On his 18th birthday the officials from Guinness World Records declared him to be the shortest man in the world.
He has also been featured in the new Ripley’s Believe It or Not! book, Enter If You Dare!, will officially take the title of world’s shortest man this week.
Khagendra has earned another title recently – Nepal’s Goodwill Ambassador. His mission will be to help the country attract 1 million tourists next year.
All right, he will be helping the country in so many ways but what are his own chances? In other words, is he getting equal amount of attention from the country he hails from?
Anyway, let’s leave that for the future....meanwhile, Happy Birthday little man.
