Dor, who is extremely shy, received the award while being accompanied by his brother.
According to Guinness World Records, Dor Bahadur Khapangi, a resident of Nepal, is the shortest living male teenager.
Dor Bahadur Khapangi, who was born on November 14, 2004, was measured on March 23, 2022 in Kathmandu, Nepal. He measures 73.43 centimeters tall (2 ft 4.9 in).
CEO of the Nepal Tourism Board Dhananjay Regmi delivered the Guinness World Records certificate to Dor, who was accompanied by his older brother Nara Bahadur Khapangi.
Dor was really reserved, so his brother spoke for him. He also mentioned how pleased they were with the certificate and acknowledgement.
Dor and his family reside in the Sindhuli district. Takkar Bahadur Khapangi and Rana Maya, two Nepalese farmers, are his parents. This distinction is significant because it may enable Dor to receive financial aid for his education.
He is presently a first-grader at the local school.
When questioned if Dor has any health issues, Nara replied that they are unsure.
“Dor Bahadur was born healthy and whole. But starting at age 7, he did not develop. Unlike his colleagues, Dor Bahadur did not advance. We can not understand why,” Nara said.
They can perhaps get the tools they need to figure out why he stopped growing with this recognition.
There were many sarcastic and terrible jokes in the comments section, but there were also many notes of encouragement, gratitude, and joy.
There were still numerous words of congratulations, along with requests for additional blessings and the possibility of a better future for him and his family.
Another Nepalese named Khagendra Thapa Magar previously held the title for the shortest-living teenager before Dor received this honor. His height was 65.58 centimeters (2ft 1 inch).
Khagendra was born with primordial dwarfism, which accounted for his diminutive size.
He was known to be the shortest man living when he turned 18 as well. In 2020, he passed away at the age of 27.
Edward Nio Hernandez from Colombia replaced Khagendra as the shortest living man when he passed away in 2020 at 72.1 cm (2 ft 4.38 in).
However, Jyoti Amge of India holds the record for having the shortest lifespan and for a woman. She received the award in 2009 and stands 62.8 cm (2 ft 0.72 in) tall. She’s 28 now.
There are medical problems that prevent children from growing, such as Achondroplasia and primordial dwarfism (in Khagendra’s case) (in the case of Jyoti).
Others, like Dor and Nio, do not fully understand the cause of their delayed growth.
According to Riley Children’s Health, this could be caused by a number of different medical issues.
Anemia, bone disease, celiac disease, kidney illness, Down syndrome, Noonan syndrome, Russell-Silver syndrome, hypopituitarism, hypothyroidism, and delayed puberty are only a few of these ailments.
In addition, “it may be attributable to chronic health issues, hereditary conditions, or hormone deficits” if a medical reason cannot be found.
