Shortage Woman
Nagpur, Dec 16: An Indian woman measuring just 62.8 centimetres (less than two foot, one inch) was on Friday (today) named as the world's shortest living woman by Guinness World Records.

Meanwhile, the Nagpur woman, Jyoti Amge took the title as she celebrated her 18th birthday, who is now shorter than the 22-year-old American who had held the title since Sept.

Amge, who is currently also the world's shortest teenager, wept with joy as she was presented with a certificate by Guinness authorities. Amge, who has a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia that has restricted her height to that of an average four-month-old baby girl, has just finished her high school exams.

The world's smallest woman wants to be a Bollywood actress in future. According to the Guinness statement, Amge has grown less than 1 centimeter (0.4 inch) in the last two years and will grow no more due to achondroplasia.
