Mother Express delights visitors in New Delhi

By Ritu Sharma

NEW DELHI: The special train exhibiting the life-long journey of the Blessed Teresa which has been delighting visitors across India arrived here on Thursday.

The “Mother Express,” part of the centenary celebration of the nun by the Indian railways, had already visited 12 stations before reaching the national capital.

The train displays pictures of the Missionaries of the Charity nun caring for the underprivileged and downtrodden and features the experiences of those who have been healed after praying to the nun.

A video showing the of Mother Teresa – as she is better known – in various parts of India is also on display in the train, which has three coaches.

Federal Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee flagged off the train on Aug 26 from Sealdah railway station in West Bengal, where Mother Teresa started her Missionaries of Charity congregation in 1950.

The train will cover 83 stations across India and end its journey in Bihar, eastern India, on Feb 26, 2011.

“It has been a great experience,” K. N. Bala, incharge of the train told ucanews.com. He said people’s response toward the exhibition has been great. “We received 10,000 visitors in a single day at Aligarh (in northern India),” he said.

Bala said the pictures on display were collected from public and the Missionaries of Charity congregation.

Anurag Sharma, who came to see the New Delhi exhibition, said he felt inspired after reading about Mother Teresa’s life. “It teaches us how to help the poor in every possible way.” UCAN
