Humanity is a highly admired virtue across the globe. Unfortunately, most of the people are not possessed by the virtue rather most of them prefer to be busy with their own. But there were some people who sacrificed their lives for the betterment of humankind selflessly.
Mother Teresa is one of the holy souls that have spent the entire life for the improvement of the impoverished section of the society. Born in Macedonia, Mother Teresa was a missionary in India. She was a Roman Catholic religious sister. She passed her early days in Yugoslavia and consequently turned into a nun to serve the destitute.
Mother Teresa, the youngest child of Nikoll? and Dranafile Bojaxhiu was born with the name – Anjez? Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, meaning little flower, in Skopje and she lived with her family in the locality before all of them moved to Tirana in 1934. Her father was involved in local politics but he died when she was of eight years old.
Mother Teresa, from her early life, was kind to the destitute people. It is also known that she loved reading stories of missionaries and was amazed particularly for the service in Bengal. Gradually she developed a determination to be a missionary and she was only 12 then. She decided to lead a life for the others and follow the religious views to walk on the chosen path. When she turned 18, she left her home to be a sister and join with the Sister of Loreto which served as a missionary. She left her home forever and never met with her mother and sister again in her life.
She learnt the English language to be applied in the continent she is travelling for helping the people with the missionaries. Initially, she arrived in India as a teacher and she had to learn Bengali too. She started teaching the Bengali speaking people. Observing the famine, misery and religious violence among the people in Calcutta, she determined to change the situation.
She founded Missionaries of Charity, a religious institution to serve the destitute plying on the streets of Calcutta. ‘Missionaries of Charity’ has different initiatives for the poor, homeless, disease-affected people and the most important information is the services it offers are free of costs.
Mother Teresa is a globally admired figure and even after her death, she is remembered with deep respect. Numerous news and events have been created for her remembrance and I live adjacent to her organisation – Missionaries of Charity. I have seen the good initiatives undertaken by the organisation. So, Mother Teresa and her institution are more familiar to me than any other thing in the town.
