It was a time when the vast majority of people were living in squalor and misery, and the poor were compelled to beg on the streets to earn a living. A caste-ridden society was the order of the day.
An educationist with a spiritual and social thrust and great zeal, Mother Teresa was convinced that all human beings are children of God, with a right to live in dignity.
