The foundation of the Red Fort was laid by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in 1639 AD and it took ten years to complete the fort. he said, Confident of retaining its support among the middle and lower middle classes, was all about Park. Genuine people-centric living would require fundamental changes in zoning regulations, and business groups,witness to an unbelievable comeback —? He was adopted and taken to England where he went to the same public school that Prince Charles did. Now he is back in Kolkata with his film Mother and Me showing at the Mother Teresa International Film Festival (yes there is such a thing) “My film is called Mother and Me not Mother and Gautam Lewis because it’s not about Gautam Lewis It’s about all the other ‘mes’ that have benefited because of service above self” In that process of service though Chatterjee says Kolkata and India’s image took a drubbing He remembers how his Irish wife was fed such horror stories about Kolkata at her school in Ireland she dreaded coming to the city after they were married Even in 2014 the Daily Mail website did a story about the 10 worst cities in the world It included places like the strife-torn capital of Somalia; Kolkata was the worst and it was written by someone who had never been to the city He sees that as a legacy of viewing the city through the prism of Mother Teresa Sisters at Mother House Firstpost/Sandip Roy “As you pump up Mother Teresa you pump down Calcutta The two are inversely proportional” he says “I don’t want Calcutta to be seen as a place that exists on Western charity It is ironic that upper class Calcuttans collude with that world view” Sunita Kumar disagrees She says

nun true to her beliefs Chatterjee is surprised the Indian Left is not a vociferous critic “Her biggest critique should come from the Left” he says “Do the Left leaders know she was an opponent of contraception even in marriage and abortion even in gang rape” Even there he sees some hypocrisy Mother Teresa he says gave a “certificate of approval” to the Emergency which became notorious for forced sterilisations Pope John Paul II holds his arm around Mother Teresa AP Perhaps one good thing that will come out of her canonisation on Sunday is that St Teresa will be reclaimed by her church She will be unquestionably an official Catholic saint now and not the unofficial “saint of the gutters” But there’s irony even in that canonisation Sunita Kumar remembers going to the Vatican with Mother Teresa once Mother looked at all its grandeur and spectacular architecture and artwork and turned to Kumar and said “Sunita they don’t need all that” This after all is the woman who had once half-jokingly wished the government would give her the Victoria Memorial in Kolkata so she could house her poor There’s a poster in the Mother Teresa museum that seems prophetic now It’s a quote from Mother Teresa: “If I ever become a saint I will surely be one of ‘darkness’ I will continuously be absent from heaven to light the light of those in darkness on earth” At some level both her critics and her devotees will agree with that Written by Vinod Kumar | Chandigarh | Updated: December 10 2015 6:15 am Related News Chandigarh has raised the highest revenue both tax and non-tax among the five
