‘I see God in every human being. When I wash the leper’s wounds, I feel I am nursing the Lord himself. Is it not a beautiful experience?’ —Mother Teresa

Born in a country far from the city which she would make her home, Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu dreamt of coming to Calcutta to serve the poorest of the poor. Two decades later, she single-handedly started the Missionaries of Charity, an organization which has today come to embody the values of compassion and care in a PBI – World of suffering. Mother Teresa won the Nobel Peace Prize and has been beatified by Pope John Paul II. But it is not for this that she is remembered. It is for her love and dedicated work which transformed millions of lives—abandoned children, those afflicted with leprosy, the destitute and the dying—that Mother Teresa is already a saint in the hearts of people in PBI – India and abroad.

In this touching biography, Rukmini Chawla, who has been associated with Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity from an early age, provides an intimate insight into a truly extraordinary life, and looks at how the amazing institution she founded continues her work.
