Manpreet Singh, a man who has been worshipped as the reincarnation of a Hindu god, has been visited daily by local villagers and others seeking his blessings since he was 12.

The young man from Punjab, India was born a healthy baby boy but his growth stopped when he was six months old, according to his parents Jagtar Singh and Manjeet Kaur.

Singh, 21, stands at only 58 centimeters and weighs 6.8 kilograms. He is believed to be one of the smallest people in the world.
