Chinese Dwarfs Founded Their Own City
A new tourist attraction has appeared in China’s Southwest Yunnan Province. City of real dwarfs, whose inhabitants are no bigger than 130 centimeters, is built here. Once you visit the city of Kunming, any low tourist feels a giant from a fairy tale – the houses are not only meant for “little people”, but are also built in the shape of mushrooms, and citizens are dressed as a fairy-tale heroes, reports The Telegraph. And although local residents claim that they came together to put an end to discrimination by the giants – people of normal growth, it is clear that an initial calculation of tourist attractions after all was done.
The city has its own police and fire services, where the same low people serve. One of the residents of Kunming, Fu Tian, in an interview said that the dwarfs are accustomed to the fact that they constantly ordered about by the big people. But there is nobody here, except for them, and everything they do they do just for themselves.
Of course, the idea of “ghetto” for short people would be loyal to the West anathema, but the Chinese authorities argue that, the account of labor force surplus in the country today is the best way to deal with the problem of discrimination of dwarfs.
Let us remind, that the world’s smallest girl is a 16-year-old Yoti Amge from India. 16 years old she is of a height with the usual year-old child, she has only 58 centimeters. But she is studying in an ordinary school, where a special desk and a chair were made for her. Yoti is recorded as the lowest girl in the Indian analogue of Guinness World Records – Book of Records “Limki”.
And the smallest man in the world lives in China, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. Ho Pinpinu is 22 years old, his height is 73 cm. In his district, Ho was a local celebrity and relatives turned to the experts from the Guinness World Records. In 2009, Ho was officially recognized as the lowest man on earth.
