An Indian grandmother has been left totally immobile after she shrunk to just two-feet tall because of a rare medical condition. She has been left in constant pain for the past two decades after her legs shrunk and twisted to the size of an infant.

According to reports, the 60-year-old Shanti Devi was originally five-feet tall, but after giving birth to her third child she gradually became weaker and her bones stiff.

She said: ‘I have been living like this for nearly 25 years now. This is painful. I get bored but I can do nothing on my own. I miss sitting and walking and meeting my friends or watering plants.’

Shanti, from Kanpur in North India, told her family she was looking smaller but they did not believe her at first.

Her husband, Gangacharan Kushwaha, said: ‘After a couple of months, she noticed changes in her body as she was looking smaller. She told us but we did not believe her until we realised she had shortened by half a foot in just four months.’

The woman’s condition slowly deteriorated and she became completely bed-ridden after a thatched roof from a neighbouring hut fell on her legs.
