Paragraph : Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa

There are many great men and women in the world who sacrificed their lives for the welfare of the human beings of the world. They never concerned of their own interest. Their thought is how to develop the poor condition of the neglected people. They are the salt and sparkling stars of the earth. Among them, Mother Teresa is the shining and homage today. Mother Teresa hailed from Yugoslavia. After feeling interested in the work of the missionaries, she joined the missionaries in Kolkata and passed her whole life in the subcontinent of India. She dedicated her life to the welfare of poor people. She started her work with scant money. By dint of her great efforts and endeavours, she has been a successful patronizer of the society of the whole people of the world. She got Nobel Prize for peace in 1979. Her contribution will never be passed into oblivion. It is true that a benevolent lady like Mother Teresa is rare to be found.

The same paragraph collected from another book

The name of Mother Teresa brings to one's mind a small, thin woman, clad in a white sari, offering love and compassion to one and all, especially the very poor. A winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and 'Order of Merit' presented by Queen Elizabeth, Mother Teresa humbly carried on her selfless work with devotion. Mother Teresa, the enlightening humanity was born on August 26, 1920. Skopje of Macedonia was her birthplace. The Nobel winner lady's father was an Albanian builder who had two daughters and one son. Mother Teresa was the youngest of them and was named Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu. At the age of 12, she heard a voice from within her that urged her to spread the love of Christ. having decided to become a missionary, she left her home at the age of 18. Then she joined an Irish community of nuns called the Sisters of Loreto, which had missions in India. 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 the then Calcutta. However the prevailing poverty in Calcutta had a deep impact on Mother Teresa's mind, and in 1948 she received permission from her superiors to leave the convent and devote herself to work among the poorest of the poor in the slums of Kolkata. Her historical home 'Nirmal Hriday' was founded in 1952. One year later she started an orphanage. Beginning her work with nothing but a strong desire to serve the poor and the needy she created an enormously successful religious order, setting up institutions for the helpless, the handicapped, the orphans and above all, leprosy-inflicted victims. This remarkable lady fought against rude behaviour and prejudices to help distressed people. This glowing lady got the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and passed away on September 5, 1997. Mother Teresa remained one of the most respected people in the world. She is lovingly called a 'Saint', for truly, only a saint could do what she had done.
