Today we would like to tell you about one amazing girl from India named Jyoti Amge. She got into the Guinness Book of Records, thanks to her small growth, which is less than 63 centimeters.She was born in 1993 in Nagpur. She looked like the most ordinary baby, her parents named the baby Jyoti, which means “light”.
A little later, doctors diagnosed a rare pathology of the bones, due to which they did not develop at a normal pace. At first, the girl grew and gained weight, as befits children of her age, but then she stopped growing. At 15, she was the size of a two-year-old toddler. Her height stopped at 62.8 cm at the age of 18, since then she has not grown a millimeter.
The girl frankly said that when she first went to school, she was very scared that all the children are so big.The girl’s mother says that buying clothes for Jyoti is a real challenge. Nowhere was sold teenage clothes in the size of 2-year-olds. She had to sew for her daughter herself or order tailoring in an atelier. The girl’s father had to make furniture, a toilet and even cutlery for her.
But the problem is not only in the growth of Jyoti. Due to abnormal development, as well as a lack of calcium, her bones are too brittle. She can get a fracture literally out of the blue. Because of this, Jyoti travels limited distances. If there is a long road ahead, one of the relatives carries it on himself.
In 2007, relatives persuaded Jyoti to apply for the Guinness Book of Records. A commission came to them, which officially registered her as a woman with the smallest stature on the planet. As a prize, she received fully paid trips to Japan and Italy.
The girl recalls that she was very happy. Many people paid attention to her and asked to be photographed. Jyoti tried not to refuse anyone. In her native India, she began to be called to various shows and programs. She was even called to the movies, but her father resolutely stated that his daughter would not act in Bollywood. But National Geographics did not say anything against filming a documentary.
A little later, she starred in the fourth season of the famous TV series American Horror Story, where she played a girl in a freak circus. Now the girl is already 26 years old. She tried herself as an actress and decided to connect her fate with this profession. At the moment she is studying at a theater university. She admits that she used to be very shy and even afraid of people, but now she cannot live without communication and new acquaintances. Joichi is in correspondence with several people who suffer from limb pathologies and other diseases. The girl supports them and helps to socialize.
