If there is passion and passion to do something then nothing gets in the way, then why should your body.  With his hard work and dedication, 26-year-old Prateek Vitthal Mohta has done just that.</p>  <p>Prateek holds the world record for being the world's smallest competitive bodybuilder.  He is only 3 feet 4 inches tall.</p>   <p>Prateek says that he tried three times to get his name in the Guinness Book of World Records but each time he was rejected.  But he sent his name for the fourth time with full readiness, which is now accepted.  With this, the world record title has now become his name.</p> <h3>People used to make fun of school and college</h3> <p>People are making a lot of fun of bodybuilder Prateek Vitthal Mohta because of his short stature but Prateek has written a success story using this short stature as his weapon.</p> <p>Speaking to BBC Hindi, Pratik says, "I was very scared of dogs because of my height.  I was attacked several times by dogs because I saw them as different from other human beings.  So I started building my body.</p>  <p>"When I went to school or college, I would meet different people on the local train," he says.  Some laughed at me, some made fun of me.  I thought that if I kept talking to everyone, I would have a hundred fights a day and it would bother me, so I decided to ignore them all and focus on my career.</p>  <p>Prateek says that after this he stopped paying attention to people's jokes and gossip.  He says that now I am reminded of the words of those who encouraged me.</p>   <h3>'It's not an easy journey'</h3> <p>"I started competing in bodybuilding competitions in 2016," says Pratik, referring to the Guinness Book of World Records registration process.  At first I was too scared to go out and perform on stage so that people would make my video go viral.</p> <p>He goes on to say, "But suppressing my fears, I decided that what I really needed to do was learn how to do it right.  And when I went on stage, I got a lot of love from people, seeing that, my courage increased and I slowly started participating in many competitions.</p> <p>He said that in 2018 he was successful in winning a silver medal by playing for Maharashtra.  He was selected for the national level from 2018.  This year he played the national game in Ludhiana, Punjab.</p>  <p>"A friend of mine told me about the Guinness World Records," he says of the world record-breaking struggle.  Then I applied for it 3 years ago.  He turned me down three times.</p> <p>He goes on to say, "After that I read a lot of news on the internet and asked him the reason for the cancellation and he told me that I was giving the wrong title for the competition.  They asked us for many certificates, such as how tall I am, whether I am always taller, bodybuilding and many more certificates for participating in various competitions.</p> <p>Prateek says that he got all this information after that and after that he was able to get the title of the world's shortest 'Competitive Bodybuilder' in the Guinness Book of World Records.</p>   <h3>'At 12 I found out I was different'</h3> <p>The dream of Pratik, who dreamed of becoming a soldier as a child, was shattered when he was 12 years old.</p> <p>Prateek says that when he was 12 years old, he realized that I would not grow taller anymore and he is different from other children.</p> <p>"It was not easy for my parents to hear," he says.  Everyone in the house was very sad.  I was placed in a 'handicap hostel'.  I studied there for 3 years and after reading there till those days I realized that if someone says something I can't shut their mouth.  That's why I finished my graduation.</p> <p>He says he was not very interested in his studies, so he turned his attention to sports.</p>  <p>Prateek says, "Now I am happy that my hard work has finally paid off.  No one in the family believed me when I was setting the Guinness World Records.  I mean, I couldn't believe I was the smallest bodybuilder in the world.  But when the record was set, the family was overjoyed.</p>  <p>He credits his success to his family.  "I came here thanks to my family," he says.  My father used to give me a little whatever he earned.  My mother used to pay me for sewing other people's clothes, because body building costs a lot of money.</p> <p>He further says, "I have to go to different places and I have to take part in the competition and bear the entire cost of going there.  And food has to be taken care of.  There is nothing I can do without the support of my family.</p>  <p>"I want to prepare myself for Mr. World and bring gold to India," says Prateek, who is pursuing his dream after setting a Guinness World Record.</p> <p>"I want to tell people like me that no matter how small we are, we are not inferior to anyone," he says.  Our height is small but always keep thinking big.</p> <p>In the end, he says, "everyone has some or the other flaw.  If God has given us something less then He must have given us some quality too.  We just have to find that quality and present it to the world.</p> <p><strong>(You for BBC Hindi's Android app</strong> <a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=uk.co.bbc.hindi"
