Mother Teresa
(1907-1997)


    Mother Teresa was an apostle of love on this earth. Her selfless work for the dying, homeless, destitute, aged and the unwanted people on streets was a manifestation of her divine self.

Mother Teresa

    Mother Teresa was born in 1910 in Yugoslavia. Her real name was Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu. When she was nine years old, her father died. Her mother Drana was a religious lady and looked after the family. Her mother earned for her bread and butter by sewing wedding dresses. She prayed every evening with her family. Thus Teresa had her mother's influence in molding her life as a deeply caring human being. Teresa was instilled with love and concern for others.

    She came to India as a missionary in 1929 for the first time. She taught history and geography in a school and then took training in nursing. It was 10th September, when an inspiring event took place in her life. She was travelling by train to reach Darjeeling. When her train reached there, a child beggar begged something from her. She heard a divine call to help and serve poorest of the poor. The call was an order of duty and Teresa moved on that path with purity and obedience.

    She remained bachelor throughout her life, serving crippled and helpless people on the pavements. She founded many organizations in Calcutta which served suffering humanity, 'Missionaries of Charity', 'Nirmol  Hridoy', homes for the sick and the dying and 'shishu Bhawan’, for the disabled and mentally retarded children.


    Mother Teresa received many national and international awards in recognition of her noble service for humanity. She received Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and Bharat Ratna in 1980. She worked for the Poor and downtrodden for all her life. She died of a cardiac arrest in 1997 and left the world mourning. The world still misses the saint, whose heart bubbled with love.
