MEET TINY JYOTI, THE SMALLEST GIRL IN THE WORLD ~ World Amazing Information, Facts & News

She stands just 1ft 11in tall and the average two-year-old would tower over her. But Jyoti Amge is no toddler - she is 14 years old.

This remarkable teenager, who weighs just 11 lb, is the smallest girl in the world.Her tiny size - she's just nine inches taller than this page - means that Jyoti has to have her fashionable clothes and jewellery made for her.

The youngster - who has a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia and will never grow any taller - is too small to use a normal-sized knife and fork so she eats off special plates... and sleeps in a tiny, custombuilt bed.

Even bathing is done on a miniature scale.

She uses specially-made steps to help her get in the bath and a small bucket and jug to wash herself.

But, astonishingly, she goes to a regular school, where her fellow pupils treat their tiny classmate as one of themselves as she she sits at her mini-desk and chair.

And Jyoti, who like any teenager loves listening to pop music and watching DVDs, is far from unhappy about her size.

She says: "I am proud of being small. I love all the attention I get. I'm not scared of being small and I don't regret it. I'm just the same as other people. I eat like you, dream like you. I don't feel any different." And her size has its benefits. She's a mini-celebrity in her home city of Nagpur, in central India. People flock to see her. Some even treat her as a goddess. And she has even recorded a soon-to-be-released album with her favourite Indian pop star, the bhangra/rap singer Mika Singh.

Her businessman father Kishanji, 52, says: "I can't separate myself from her even for a single day. I love her very much. She makes me proud. Lots of gurus come to see and bless her. They pray for her happiness and long life."

Her mother Ranjana, 45, adds: "When Jyoti was born, she seemed quite normal. We came to know about her disorder when she was five. We consulted a specialist and he said she will be this size all of her life. Jyoti is small, yet cute, and we love her very much."

For one so small, Jyoti has big ambitions.

She hopes to one day break into Bollywood as an actress.

She says: "I would love to work in a big city like Mumbai, act in films and travel to London and America."
