At eighteen, taking the name of Teresa in the memory of Little Flower of Lisieux, she entered the Missionary Order of the Loreto Sisters and on January 20, 1931, she stepped off a steamship onto the quay at Calcutta, then the largest city in the Empire after London. For sixteen years, she taught Geography to the daughters of well-to-do British and Bengali society in one of the most prestigious convents in Calcutta. One day in 1946, however, during a train journey to Darjeeling, a town on the slopes of the Himalayas, she heard a voice. God was asking her to leave the comfort of her convent, to go and live among the poorest of the poor in the vast city beyond. Having first obtained the permission from the Pope, she changed into a plain white cotton sari and founded a new religious order whose vocation was to relieve the misery of the most neglected of men. In 1950, the Order of the Missionaries of Charity was born, a congregation which thirty-five years later would have two hundred and eighty-five thousand charitable foundations throughout India and all the other continents, including countries behind the Iron Curtain.

    Mridu crept up to the window. Lalli was sitting a little distance away, awkwardly holding her violin and bowstrings, her elbows jutting out and her eyes glazed with concentration. In front of her, with most of his back to the window, was the bony figure of the music master. He had a mostly bald head with a fringe of oiled black hair falling around his ears as an old fashioned tuft. A gold chain gleamed around his leathery neck, and a diamond ring glittered on his hand as it glided up and down the string of the violin. A large foot stuck out from beneath his gold bordered veshti edge, and he was beating time on the floor with his scrawny big toe.
