Mother Teresa landed in Sisters of Loreto at the age of 18 to learn the operation of Churches and landed in India in the year 1929, while she was continuing 20. She had the trust and determination that she will serve the poor through different missionaries and help them to get well from the sufferings.  Since 1931 to 1948, she taught in The Teresa  School in Darjeeling and through her teaching she could learn how to connect to the people and their sufferings.


In 1948, she established the Missionaries of Charity and served the poor people in different cities of Kolkata. In initial two years, the group of sisters were 13 in Kolkata, but served thousands of Poverty Stricken people. She served the poor with full devotion and heartful thoughts of compassion and Universal Love for all to eradicate sufferings from this world. Just a ray of smile in lips of patients suffering from leprosy, aids, was bringing solace and satisfaction to Mother. By the year 1997, she was operating number of missionaries, schools and charitable organizations by around 4000 nuns in 100 countries. By that time she had received all the awards including Padma Vibhusan, (1962), Nobel Peace Prize (1979), Bharat Ratna (1980). She was also criticized by the people for complains like the quality of treatment for the people, those who were sleeping on the street, the lack of infrastructure etc, which was done after her death by Pope on her document. This trust had made her saint for the people.



Karna everyday morning was offering his ‘Dan” to the sages, sufferers and poor people and was getting blessings of sages,  satisfaction of Dan and help the people to get rid of their sufferings. While King of Gods,  Indra, came to ask for “Kundala and Kabacha” he was not matching to any of the category and Karna new it, yet he had offered Dan because of his trust on his commitment. This trust had made Karna “The Shreshtha Dani in the Globe”. 


In a democracy, the rulers are made with the trust that they will protect the humanity and contribute for establishment of peace and justice in this globe. 


Trust is the Breath which keeps the soul alive, connected to the life and working for the purpose. It creates saints, it creates Danis, it creates rulers.

    The word “TRUST” influences every point in our life and Prof. Samanta, you have penned down this crucial aspect so nicely in your post. I am really moved by the statement “Trust is the Breath which keeps the soul alive…”. So true. Breathing in faith and trust will not only lighten our soul but will emancipate us to do more of what invigorates us and elevates others in the society. Standing strong in our convictions and with that “Just a Trust” on ourself, can make us LEAD a great LIFE.

    "No One Has Every Became Poor By Giving", this famous line from the book 'The Diary Of a Young Girl' by Anne Frank has a deep meaning hidden in it. Charity is something which requires a big heart to do. This article has wonderfully expressed the examples of charity and kindness, simultaneously has made them lively.

    Avarice and ambition, though their modus operandi are purely of different tracks, they lead to one destination only. Needless to say, whatever the examples inked here, the wordsmith intents to conclude her novel with teaching-learning or, on the other language, guru-sisya environment only. Thanks a lot madam for the courthouse and pious description.
