The defamation, harassment, cheating and exploitation of short people in India due to the intolerate attitude of powerful officials

Short people are denied opportunities they deserved

While open discrimination against handicapped or disabled persons is not politically correct, and they often have seats/jobs reserved for them, in India the all powerful intelligence agencies openly discriminate against short people in some states. If a person is short these officials will show their complete lack of culture openly mocking the short person. These officials lack the humanity and empathy to realize that the height of a person depends to a large extent on hereditary and other factors which are totally beyond his or her control.

However impressive the resume of the brilliant short person may be, he or she will be expected to play second fiddle to a taller person, who may be extremely incompetent, mediocre, lazy, greedy. The short person will be expected to do all the work, and let the lazy taller person get credit despite not doing any work at all or investing any money. These officials are extremely rigid in denying opportunities to the shorter person, often wasting a huge amount of indian tax payer money to destroy the life of the brilliant short person.

These arrogant incompetent intelligence agency officials do not realize that they are being extremely unfair to the brilliant hardworking person, expecting him or her to play second fiddle to a mediocre lazy greedy liar and cheater. Most brilliant persons will strongly resist the unfair proposal of the intelligence agencies, resulting in wastage of tax payer money as these officials harass the short person, and the time, money of the investor, brilliant engineer resisting the harassment attempt. The intelligence agencies also will try to steal the impressive resume of the short person for lazy greedy mediocre people, not realizing that the taller fraud will not become brilliant overnight.

In ensuring that the short person will not be successful, India will often waste tax payer money, talent and experience, There are a number of world famous people who are short or have disability. Alibaba chairperson Jack Ma from China remains one of the most successful internet entrepreneurs in the world and his height remains less than 5 feet 5 inches. Similarly the british scientist stephen hawking has become world famous despite his illness due to his brilliance.

When the intelligence agencies in China and UK could actively promote these talented individuals, why are the indian intelligence agencies so rigid about the height of a person? On an average, due to hereditary factors, poverty and malnutrition, Indian men and women are not very tall. So why is a brilliant person a few inches shorter than the national average, treated like a second class citizen and denied her fundamental right? How are short people treated in your country?

Permit me to disagree with you. I don't think such discrimination exists in India. Sachin Tendulkar venerated as a God by cricket lovers is short. So is Gavaskar. I've many friends who are short and they don't get any unfair treatment. I don't know about the intelligence agencies,.

In the indian internet sector, in Goa people openly mock short people, especially if they are business owners. Caste may also be a factor
