Smallest Girl on this Earth
Jyoti Amge is the smalest girl on this earth. Now she is 14 years of old weighing only 5 Kg. She has a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia and won't grow any taller than her current height.
Due to her size, Jyoti has to have clothes and jewellery made for her. She sleeps in a tiny bed and uses special plates and cutlery to eat, as normal-sized utensils are too big.
Despite this, she goes to a regular school in
, central Nagpur , where she has her own small desk and chair, and her classmates treat her like any other student India
