Remembering ‘Mot..

By Ranjita Biswas

So Kolkata’s very own ‘Mother’ is getting canonised after many deliberations and many years of waiting. I took out the slip of paper from my drawer I have preserved for more than twenty years. Torn from a notebook hastily, it looks worn now. I was waiting with my little daughter at the Kolkata (then Calcutta) airport, not the swanky airport it is today, to go to my parents’ place in Assam. Suddenly I saw her-Mother Teresa, in her signature blue bordered white saree, sitting on a sofa on the opposite side. Excited, I dragged my daughter and approached her. She smiled radiantly and wrote on my notebook, “God bless you!”
