A 50-year-old man whose height is that of a healthy fiveyear-old is currently the toast of villagers and visitors to their tiny Indian village. .
As a toddler, there was nothing to distinguish Basori Lal from his peers, and it was only around age five that his family started to notice that he had stopped growing. .
However, because they were poor, his family could not seek medical attention to at least know what was wrong with him, and to also see if the situation could be treated. .
As reported by MailOnline, Basori was never given a medical diagnosis, and to this day, his relatives have no idea what caused him to be so short.
His 55-year-old elder brother, Gopi Lal, 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. .
The 50-year-old works in a factory with his relatives, and says he enjoys a glass of whiskey every night before bed. He has never married and says he doesn’t want to.
