Born on 26 th
August 1910, she was a catholic nun from Albania. She came to India in 1929 and started teaching at St. Teresa School in Calcutta (now Kolkata). But she was highly moved and disturbed by the poverty surrounding Calcutta and the outburst of famine in Bengal in 1943 and the Hindu Muslim riots 1946 which further worsened the situation and brought death, misery and sorrow to the city. On October 7 th
1950 she got the permission from Vatican to start diocesan congregation that would become the Missionaries of Charity
The visiting hours for people and students are from morning 10.00 am. To evening 5.00 pm. This train has a wide collection of pictures depicting the life journey, charity and selfless work of Mother Teresa. This exhibition depicts her devotion and dedication towards humanity. Students with teachers and guardians started coming to the station for the visit. There were volunteers to explain and inform the people about Mother Teresa. The things that we look at, they someday turn into a benefit for ourselves or may be for others as well. A benefit is in turn good for everyone when it is learnt from a true devotee, Mother Teresa. A visit can salute her dedication.
