What happened to Quaden was unfortunate, but by means of that video, I believe, awareness about Dwarfism was raised to an extent. Here are instances when I have been being mocked at both by strangers and people I know:
1. People would ask if they could carry me in the same way an adult would carry a toddler. (You won't believe this, but people still ask me the same!)
2. I would be asked to try to jump and reach for things that were out of my reach. (Colleagues at an earlier place I worked at would take my ID card and hold it high, expecting me to jump and take it.)
3. As a child, my peers would ask me to run after them. (To check if I could run as fast as them and make fun of my running.). Some children in the school I studied at would call me 'potti' (short).
4. Today, in public places, people refer to me as 'Chinna Ammayi' (small lady) and jeer at me. I've often had people trying to take a photo of me and make fun of my appearance. Young kids group around to check if they are taller than me. Others call their friends to come have a look for a good laugh.
