At 113, Indian pensioner Zeenat Bi has made the claim that she is the oldest dwarf in the world.

With a height of only 3 feet there is no denying that Zeenat is indeed a dwarf, however her exact age remains a matter of debate. Her pension records suggest she is actually 101 years old, however even if this were true she would still be substantially older than the official record holder who only just turned 74.

"I am so old that I have seen this city grow up with me," she says. "I remember during the British times, this entire city was almost a jungle. There were trees as far as the eye could see." Before she dies Zeenata would like to meet Bollywood star Salman Khan and take part in the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca.

"An Indian pensioner who says she is 113-years-old is staking a claim as the world's oldest dwarf."

Interesting read, I found it sad that she out lived her family and never married , and how her guardians say that no one has cared for her , must be a hard life , you see how people say they are not cared for , but she truly wasn't until now . Whether she is the oldest or not , it shouldn't matter she has lived, ither way she has lived longer then any of us hope to live and seen more then our generation Y will ever see .

Can you explain that claim.

That's something for her to live that long, don't know if I believe it. I have read that most dwarfs die in their early 50's so she is very lucky.

Skara Brae , a grassy mound by the bay of skaill , is your starting point . Self-contained miniture undergroung dwellings were revealed connected by passages . Although it was discovered in 1850 archaeologists found tools , jewellery and kitchen implements . It was described as a whole town in miniature . Google it .

Well, who knows. I suppose In a country where sitting with one arm in the air for 20 years or being able to wrap your penis around a walking stick makes you a swami to be visited, being the worlds oldest dwarf might have some commercial value... But I'd like to believe it's true.

I don't think it matters if she is 101 or 113. Either way that is old and pretty amazing.
