To millions, Mother Teresa portrays an image of a small woman in a white sari, offering love and compassion to the poorest of the poor. The life of perhaps the most famous woman in the world has already been well documented. What makes this book different is that RAGHU
RAI and NAVIN CHAWLA, both Hindus, have interacted with their subject closely. They have come to understand her faith and spirituality, as well as her practical down to earth nature and her sense of humour. Through his camera lens, Raghu Rai's powerful black and white portraits
capture the emotive appeal of Mother Teresa and her Missionaries of Charity, unerringly reflecting her spirit and simplicity. Navin Chawla has known Mother Teresa for over 20 years during which he has been closely associated with her work. His text draws on rare documents, letters and conversations to provide a special insight into her mission.
The result is a unique offering.
