There was no difference between Basori Lal and his peers when he was a toddler but the story changed after he turned 5 years old. At that age, his family noticed that he had stopped growing but were too poor to seek medical attention for him. Hence, there was no hope of finding out why he has a stunted growth process. 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. Basori, who is never married because he has no inclination for it, 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.
