    One thought on “Mother Teresa The Untold Story”

    1. Any criticism of Mother Teresa, in India, is brushed aside without consideration because, more often than not it comes from the hindu right who are lampooned as hillbillies in the popular media. However the author, Dr. Aroup Chatterjee, just as any Calcuttan worth his salt, is a Marxist or has been one during his college days. Therefore, his book cannot be dismissed as easily.Mother Teresa is much more adored and deified in the West than in India. Criticizing her is sacrilege, yes, but she is no [...]

    2. “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”And, how right good ole Winston was, when he uttered this line. Mother Teresa lived and “worked” full time to prove how correct Winston was. She just modified it with a few twists of her own. Advertise the lie, get some cronies to publish that lie through books and articles, brainwash a few into believing the lie and lo and behold, we have a “Saint” who cures tumors with medallions.But, I guess we [...]

    3. There were (separate) times when I found the critique to be monotonous, contradictory or even a tad bit unfair Not sure if that could have been avoided- but there is no doubt that this is a story that needed to be told. The painstaking approach of the author makes it a better read.

    4. A mind blowing read. It left me disturbed for a while as I digested the information provided to me after years of research and hard work. This book made me think about a lot of things and raised a lot of questions.It needs to be read by one and ALL to know the real face of our Indian society.

    5. Fantastic research work. The book reveals the hidden truth.Got clarity on my understanding towards The Mother

    6. An excellent book A well-researched and excellently written book that exposes the monster and charlatan that was Mother Teresa. Chatterjee plots the rise of the myth, shines light on the truth, and conclusively shows how she did far more harm than good.

    7. Extremely partisan, sometimes bordering on the ranting of one obsessed. Could have been more balanced. Recommended for those that revel in taking down icons because they have feet of clay, all the while forgetting that these icons, also human, have done more good than we have
