Mother Teresa said: "By blood, I am an Albanian. By citizenship, I am Indian. By faith, I am a Catholic nun. As to my calling, I belong to the world. As to my heart, I belong entirely to the Heart of Jesus." Happy Birthday to a role model for us all.

In 1979, Mother Teresa (26 Aug 1910 - 5 Sep 1997) was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. She was the Leader of Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta, India.

At the age of twelve, she felt strongly the call of God. She knew she had to be a missionary to spread the love of Christ. At the age of eighteen she left her parental home in Skopje and joined the Sisters of Loreto, an Irish community of nuns with missions in India. After a few months’ training in Dublin she was sent to India, where on May 24, 1931, she took her initial vows as a nun. From 1931 to 1948 Mother Teresa taught at St. Mary’s High School in Calcutta, but the suffering and poverty she glimpsed outside the convent walls made such a deep impression on her that in 1948 she received permission from her superiors to leave the convent school and devote herself to working among the poorest of the poor in the slums of Calcutta. Although she had no funds, she depended on Divine Providence, and started an open-air school for slum children. Soon she was joined by voluntary helpers, and financial support was also forthcoming. This made it possible for her to extend the scope of her work.

On October 7, 1950, Mother Teresa received permission from the Holy See to start her own order, “The Missionaries of Charity”, whose primary task was to love and care for those persons nobody was prepared to look after. Mother Teresa and her helpers built homes for orphans, nursing homes for lepers and hospices for the terminally ill in Calcutta. Mother Teresa's organization also engaged in aid work in other parts of the world.

The modest nun became known all over the world, and money poured in. But she was also criticized. It was alleged that dying people in the hospices were refused pain relief, whereas Mother Teresa herself accepted hospital treatment. She also held a conservative view on abortion. She was regarded as a spokesperson for the Vatican. In September 2016, Mother Teresa was made a saint by Pope Francis.

an alternate take from one of the greatest intellectual of our times. though controversial, it is well reasoned & much needed to balance the narrative of "greatest humanitarian".

Don't worry about the intention and approach, focus on the good results.  You can find negatives in intent and approach of every person. mahatma gandhi ayina, sri rama chandrudu ayina..

Mother Teresa did great work. No doubt about it. But her Prime purpose was to spread Xianity in India and she was sent to India for that purpose and she did that well as per her role.

There are serious controversies that she didnt opt to transfer dying patients to govt hospitals as that would de-motivate other patients from believing Christ

Keeping controversies apart she did great work in the Kolkata Slums [thumb]

Not all noble but the impact she had on India is almost comparable to Gandhi ji. Every kid grown up in India was taught to love her through her inspiring stories

There was also grey side like supporting world dictators, denying medicine and treatment for patients, embrace pain philosophy. Aa times lo pedda vishayam la kanipinchi undav but epudu chusthey dodgy ga anipistundi. West lo chala mandi called her out even back then

"Universal bridge among nations and religions of earth"

Hindus are innocent and naive.
The first time I interacted with Christians when I came to Chennai, I told them in a conversation that all religions lead to God like rivers lead to sea. The Christian students flat out refused that statement as naive in my face and told me that their lord Jesus Christ alone leads the sinners and a soul however great like Gandhi will have to go to hell because he wasn't baptised. Every person of abrahamic faith whether be it jew, Christian or Muslim believes this way. Hindus should stop being naive.

Mother Teresa is a Christian nun. She has helped convert millions of people into her faith - fact.

On top of that she is a sadist too. Please watch the confession videos of many white Christians who volunteered to work with her. She would refuse medicine to a sick teenager because if he gets medicine then everyone will want the same. She got millions of dollars in funds to set up a hospital but she refused to do so. Her organisation still runs a dingy crowded place where people can die in a mosquito infested hellhole. All the funds she receives are sent to Christian conversion hubs abroad.

Please read "missionary position" by hitchens
Please watch the mother Teresa documentary by Christopher hitchens
Please educate yourselves, don't fall into the trap of confirmation bias.

Also st. Xavier who dead body many naive Hindus pray to, did many sadistic atrocities in Goa like sewing up the mouths of Brahmins with pig or dog body parts and polluting them and leaving them no alternative but conversion.

Also many of our Hindus are sadists. I am not saying that we are all saints. If not for our Hindu caste sadism the lower castes wouldn't convert to other religions would they?

Service chesaru with hospitals and schools. Today its insignificant but in 1960s-80s they helped with English Convents and Advanced Hospitals 

Mother Teressa model was bit more crude and raw. With minimal cost she got big name which made western missionaries look great at her and make her divine personality

Lepers, destitute, Lukemia etc patients ku service ichindi. Was she aiming to cure it ...no...if you see it used to be 50 patients in a room on the floor...Many are already terminally ill and so they are going to die anyway...but they have someone taking little care during that...

Once she became famous internationally, she was in a position to take good care of these with medicines, doctors etc and to shift to better hospitals for cure...but she preferred NOT as that will take away the belief and demotivate others
