‘A saint in a sari’-Mother Teresa-who had dedicated her life in helping the poor and the outcast, was considered by many people as a living saint. She was a glorious human being laboring and sacrificing for others. A unique person with a tough character who lived and died amongst the universe she organized that helped the rich and the poor. In early youth she became a nun, and the children she taught in Calcutta took to calling her Mother Teresa. Later the whole world followed. She founded her own religious order and established a second institution, a clinic for the homeless and hopeless.
Her early work went largely unnoticed. Later, everyone acknowledged her contribution. Mother Teresa’s selfless sacrifice earned her a Nobel Peace Prize. She was a striking character. She was always sure of what she said and did.
She was a fighter in the real sense-she fought to establish the truth and the right. Mother Teresa was never afraid of speaking out loud about what she believed in. She spoke of God, of love, of families, of morality and of poverty. She once said,” The greatest poverty in the world is the feelings of loneliness, of not being wanted.” Believing this she set out to touch the hearts of those who suffered. She strongly opposed abortion, calling it the greatest destroyer of peace.
Her burden finally proved too much as she died of a heart attack on the 5 th of September 1997 in Kolkata. Dressed in her traditional white sari with blue trim, her face ashen and her hands crossed, Mother Teresa’s embalmed body was laid on a table covered with white sheet and flowers. As a mark of respect, The Indian Government ordered a state funeral and burial in Kolkata. Her body, draped with the Indian Flag, was in a coffin placed on a gun carriage.
