This 19-year-old woman who hails from Nagpur is often mistaken for a toddler due to a rare condition.
Aboli Jarit, who stands at just 3 feet 4 inches tall, was diagnosed with renal rickets when she was a baby. The syndrome, which combines chronic renal disease and deformity of bones, has affected Aboli. She was born without a urinary bladder and thus has to wear a diaper at all times.
After getting diagnosed with the disease, doctors had to make a hole in her waist to make sure that the urine doesn’t build up in her body. Moreover, her stunted growth has made it difficult for her to walk and left her wheelchair-bound.
In addition to her daily struggles, Aboli said she is often the target of online trolls who make fun of her small stature.
But this has not stopped Aboli from dreaming big as she aspires to become a model and singer. Aboli developed an interest in singing and dancing as a child, but as her condition progressed, she could not even walk.
Aboli even broke her leg once, but that didn’t deter her and she continued to dance while sitting. Later, her brother gave her name to a talent show which boosted her confidence. She was even featured in the music show Indian Idol and also managed to reach the final of Mrs Wheelchair India.
Aboli has set her sights on becoming a famous actor and wants to work in Bollywood and Hollywood. Although doctors have said her condition is incurable, Aboli remains optimistic about her future. She emphasized that many with her condition do not survive, and she is lucky to be alive.
