You’re always going to feel shorter no matter how tall you are unless you are the tallest man in the world. So you can well imagine what Jyoti Amge, from India the shortest girl in the world who is just about two feet felt when she met the tallest man in the world.
35-year-old Sultan Kosen from Turkey who is 8’1″ is the only living human that tall and also holds a record in the Guinness book of world record.
When Jyoti met this giant Sultan, she looked just like an ant.
Jyoti’s height is due to a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia. It is a genetic disorder that affects bone growth, causing short stature and disproportionately short limbs. She was declared to be the shortest woman in the world in the year 2001.
While Sultan Kosen’s condition was due to pituitary gigantism which is caused when the pituitary gland produces too much growth hormone, causing excessive body growth and height. He too was declared to be the world’s tallest man in the year 2001 by the Guinness Book of World Records.
