Jyoti Amge with a neighbour’s 13-month old baby and with her school friends
Far from being unhappy about her tiny size, Jyoti says that she enjoys the celebrity status her height has brought her. â€œI am proud of being small. I love the attention I get,â€ she told the Sunday Mirror.
â€œI’m just the same as other people. I eat like you, dream like you. I don’t feel any different.â€
Jyoti attends her local high school, in Nagpur, India, where she studies alongside classmates of her own age, though she sits at a specially made miniature desk.
Her mother, Ranjana, 45, explained that her daughter’s condition was not apparent until some time after her birth. â€œWhen Joyti was born she seemed quite normal. We came to know about her disorder when she was five,â€ she said. â€œJyoti is small, yet cute, and we love her very much.â€
Like any other teenager, she loves listening to pop music and watching DVDs and even hopes to become a Bollywood actress. She has recently recorded an album with her favourite Indian pop star, Mika Singh.
This is just crazy.
