Guinness World Record confirmed the tininess of 72 year old Chandra Bahadur Dangi, of 22 inch Height.In this blog, I am talking about the Interview of Chandra Bahadur Dangi shown live on Nepal Television’s program Samaye Sandarva. Photo-Journalist Prakash Mathema and Chandra Bahadur’s Nephew Dolak Dangi were also present in the show. You Could find some unknown and interesting facts about his personal life, and how he came to light in the video. Speaking with his high pitched voice and sometimes inaudible, he expressed his innocent feelings for getting the title with “ramro thikai lagyo”, “Khusi lagyo”, “ramro khusi lagyo”(felt good, felt happy, felt good happy).
