"I can confirm that as of today Khagendra Thapa Magar is the officially shortest man in the world," Fragatti said amidst cheers.

The teen underwent a series of medical examinations over the past two days in his hometown of Pokhara to ascertain his height and weight.

A businessman discovered Magar four years ago in remote Baglung district.

Since then, he has been the center of attraction at fairs across the country, with organizers paying to exhibit him.

"I am very happy with the recognition," his father, Rup Bahadur Thapa Magar, told CNN by phone. "For the last few days, Khagendra has been saying that he is a big man now."

The businessman who discovered him said the recognition was years in the making.

"This is the end of a journey that began four years ago," Min Bahadur Rana said.

The first time he applied, Guinness officials told him he had to be 18, Rana said.

Magar replaces Edward Nino Hernandez, 24, of Colombia, who measures 70.21 centimeters (27.4 inches). Hernandez had been declared the shortest living man after Chinese national He Pingping died in March.

Magar is a resident of Pokhara, 200 kilometers (124 miles) west of the capital, Kathmandu.

Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel - World Tallest Statue coming up in Gujarat India

While the United States had been gifted the Statue of Liberty by France to commemorate the 200th year of its founding, Gujarat will go one up on the French by gifting a mammoth Statue of Unity to the country.
Chief minister Narendra Modi announced the creation of a 182 m tall statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, which will be the world's tallest statue.

The statue will be called Statue of Unity and will be placed at Sadhu Bet, an island located 3 km away from the Sardar Sarovar Dam in the riverbed of Narmada. Incidentally, the Statue of Liberty is 93 m tall.
The CM made this announcement on the eve of the beginning its his 10th year as the Gujarat chief minister. He referred to this ambitious structure as yet another gift to the country after projects like the Mahatma Mandir convention hall at Gandhinagar and memorial of Shyamji Krushna Varma at Mandvi, Kachchh.
Talking to the media at GLS auditorium, Law Garden at a press conference organized by the state Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday, the CM explained the concept of the monument. He said every society has a history and great men who inspire new generations. Now, in the tradition of immortalizing the great men of Gujarat like Mahatma Mandir at Gandhinagar and the memorial of Shyamji Krushna Varma at Mandvi, Kachchh, "we will be building the Statue of Unity - the tallest memorial of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel in the world."
Explaining the details of the statue, Modi said, "It will be having almost double the height than the Statue of Liberty in the USA and five times taller than the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It will be a unique memorial which will have a museum depicting the life of Sardar Patel, research centre for subjects like good governance and agriculture technology, which were close to Sardar's heart."
The project will be developed with public participation through a registered society or trust under the chairmanship of the chief minister. "As the memorial will be the tallest in the world, we will be consulting and inviting experts from across the globe.
We will also be developing a dedicated website for the project, where everybody can make their suggestions for the rare project. Once the various technical studies like geographical survey and environmental study, project plan will be prepared. Once finished with these minutiae, it would be possible to complete the monument in 3 years. Presently, various experts and agencies are being searched."
The monument will have a lift and visitors can go to the top of the structure and have a panoramic view from Sardar Patel's eye.
According to Modi, the memorial will be a new chapter in the development of the tribal belt in the state, as it will open employment opportunities for the local tribal youth and boost tourism in the state.


World's largest brandy truffle set Guinness World Records 2011

Even the most fervent chocoholic would have trouble tackling this beast - the world's largest brandy truffle ever created.

Weighing in at a whopping 253.9kg and made using £1,600 of ingredients, the mega sweet treat contains a staggering 433,330 calories and 22,941g of fat.

The creators of the truffle are celebrating after their chocolate masterpiece, smashing the previous world record by almost 60kg.  

Owner of The Queen's Head Inn, in Bromsgrove, Worcs, Gianni D'Aniello and head chef Chris Long spent five and a half hours constructing the truffle from a traditional recipe of chocolate, brandy, double cream and cocoa powder.

The truffle, in accordance with the official guidelines, was created in the correct proportions and prepared in the same way as a normal size truffle with a ganache centre before being coated in cocoa powder.

Evidence of the attempt, to mark the start of National Chocolate Week, will now be submitted to the Guinness World Records so it can be formally verified as an official record-breaker.

The previous holder of the record was a comparatively measly 196.3kg. 

The ingredients were all donated by local businesses and the truffle will now be broken up into into smaller truffles and sold to raise money for Birmingham Children's Hospital Heart Appeal.

Gianni, 41, said: 'Chris is exceptionally skilled at making things with chocolate so with it being National Chocolate Week we decided to try and break a record. 

'It was certainly quite a challenge though. We had to make the ganache the night before and cross our fingers in the hope that it would set in time as Guinness set very strict timeframes on these things.

'Then it was just a case of assembling it, which took quite a few hours. There was one point when we thought we had bitten off more than we could chew, but then we rolled up our sleeves and got stuck in to it.

'We are hoping to make about 2,000 smaller truffles out of it which should raise about £7,000 for the hospital. Hopefully a truffle or two should really sweeten the deal for them.'

Louise McCathie, spokesperson for the hospital, said: 'I am delighted Gianni and Chris broke the record.
