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.’He also works with his sister-in-law in a local factory, and she is keen to pay tribute to her tiny brother-in-law.

It doesn’t bother him.’All he needs is happiness, good people around him, and a good whiskey!’Now, Basori is content to spend his life living with his brother and working in the factory to earn more money for the family.He said: ‘I don’t want to get married. I want to work like I am doing right now. I always want to live with my brother.’Indeed, Basori is so happy with his height that he drinks a special toast to it each evening before bed.He said: ‘I need a glass of whiskey before I go to sleep. That’s my way of celebration.’
