"When I was younger I was very afraid to go out, to go to school, or to meet new people," Jyoti told Guinness World Records.

"But, my parents told me I must face the world. After turning 7 I started getting some attention from the press, which helped my confidence a lot to be recognised in a positive way for my size."

"Then since getting the record, it has really become an advantage being my size! The biggest change is that now I can travel the world and see things outside of India. I've been to Japan, Italy, and now London!"
