Letter to editor The Hindu - Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa would probably be delighted if we comprehend the spirit of what she did. She understood and brought to the forefront the ‘strength’ that can be found in the weak and the vulnerable and she derived her meaning and strength from it. She was weak herself with no remarkable academic/professional credentials, yet she was strong. If we understand that the strong and the celebrated are actually vulnerable and the weak and the meek and the lowly are actually strong, we can, like Mother Teresa, find meaning in serving. The top-down condescending approach will not help.
