The world's shortest woman, Jyoti Amge, took on the towering heights of New York's Empire State Building to promote the latest edition of the Guinness World Records.

Jyoti Amge is just 24.7 inches high, that's around 60 cms.

She was officially declared the world's smallest woman by Guinness Book of Records in December 2011. Her restricted height is due to a growth anomaly called achondroplasia.

According to Guinness World Records, Amge is shorter than the average 2-year-old and even smaller than a New York fire hydrant.

Her fame has landed her roles in two Bollywood movies, but she now has her sights set on Tinseltown.

"I'm studying right now. Earlier I wanted to be in Bollywood but I didn't get too many offers, so now I'm thinking of going to Hollywood."

And with any luck, she'll reach new heights of success.

In the meanwhile, the latest edition of the Books of Guinness World Records holds the world's best skateboarding goat, the globe's largest moving mechanical dragon and the smallest roadworthy car among the latest records set.

So whether it's the fastest 100m in high heels or the world's smallest dog, Guinness World Records is as usual jam-packed with top achievements.
