I am a professional dancer and choreographer. I did not know in my childhood that my height could be a problem. I started having issues when I was growing up in my teenage years. People would call me ‘Batlya’ (a dwarf in Marathi). People would mock for being a dwarf. I got to know that day my height is not like others. People would also come home to offer me work in the circus but my father said a big ‘No’. My parents are aged and they can’t work at this stage of their life. So, I decided to go out and work.
