April 9, 2008: Short Stuff

Quote:
At first glance, she appears to be a month-old baby, sitting in her mother’s lap. But make no mistake; Jyoti Amge is a 15-year-old schoolgirl.

Perhaps the world’s smallest girl at 23.5 inches, or just about two feet, in height, weighing barely 5.25 kg, Jyoti has Achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism.

“I am also the world’s happiest person,” she chuckles. “People, my friends and family – everybody showers love on me, and I am happy to be what I am.”

She makes no secret of the fact that she enjoys and loves the kind of attention she gets. “May be it will bring name and fame to me and my family,” she feels. The teenager, who studies at Bharatiya Vidya Niketan Higher Primary School in seventh standard, stopped growing a few months after her birth, her parents say.

Aware of the celebrity status that her height has brought her, Jyoti wants to give acting a shot. “I wish to become an actress,” she says, confident of making it to the dream world of Bollywood some day. She plans to take acting lessons soon.

Now there, is a high maintenance girlfriend.

Primordial dwarfism. I watched a programme on it a while back (and someone responded to say they'd seen it too). The heartbreaking thing is that they have such short lives and no chance of reproduction.

I hope she makes it to Bollywood. She will probably have a very short career and make little impact on the industry.

At least nobody has been tasteless enough to point out that she'd probably fit into that bookbag.

~or have a career with Jeff Dunham.
But it's nice that she is so happy anyway.

She has Achondroplasia, not Primordial Dwarfism. She will have a relatively normal lifespan and may be able to carry and give birth to children.
