Bi, who stands just three feet tall, has revealed a wish list of things she wants to do before she dies - including meeting Bollywood star Salman Khan and taking part in the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca.

The tiny woman said she remembers life in India under British rule and when Nawab's (Indian Princes) still held a major influence over daily life.

If her age is correct, she would have been born during the reign of Queen Victoria, who held the title "Empress of India."

"I am so old that I have seen this city grow up with me. I remember during the British times, this entire city was almost a jungle. There were trees as far as the eye could see," she said.

"I even remember when the British introduced English bread in the city for the first time. It was such a sensation, it was nothing like people had eaten before," she added.

Bi has survived all of her family and never married. Despite suffering from cataracts and a calcium deficiency, she manages to survive on her only source of income, a government pension of 275 rupees per month.
