The World's Shortest Woman
World's shortest woman wants to be Bollywood star
NAGPUR, India (AP) — A high school student in central India was recognized as the world's shortest woman by Guinness World Records on Friday as she turned 18 and said she hopes to earn a degree and make it in Bollywood.
Jyoti Amge stood just 62.8 centimeters (24.7 inches) tall — shorter than the average 2-year-old — when Guinness representatives visiting from London measured her at a ceremony attended by about 30 relatives and friends in the town of Nagpur, in Maharashtra state.
She's adorable, a perfect Indian woman only tiny. If there's ever a Bollywood musical version of Mothra,
cast Jyoti as The Mothra Fairies
(they were 12" tall).
