Baba Amte v/s Satanic Mother Teresa

Has any indian done service to Lepers like Theresa ? When Indians shunned lepers - Theresa cared for them


Have you heard about Baba Amte and his Family ???
Baba was the name given to him - it was not a religious title.
Baba Amte was born in a rich family. He had his own sports cars in 1920s. He was a lawyer in 1930s and had a great practice in Wardha 

But he joined freedom struggle - defended indians imprisoned by british and went to jail in quit india movement
After independence he started serving people with leprosy and tribals in Gond through ANANDWAN {if possible try to visit Anadwan once]
He wanted to prove that Leprosy is not very contagious and so he injected serum of a leprosy patient to prove that
He has served treated rehabilitated millions of leprosy patients
he has improved the economy of Tribal areas in Maharastra
All his life he wore khadi, lived with poor and tribals and served them
He never sought publicity in foreign countries or did Photo Op sessions for media
he didn't hobnob with politicians netas or media personal
he didn't live a 5 star life and get treated in US hospitals
He didn't take donations from dictators and smugglers
he never involved religion in this work and was an atheist
Hence we don't know his legacy
We didn't give him Bharat Ratna
He didn't get Nobel prize
And we don't put up his pictures in hospitals and call him Father Amte
Now his whole family is continuing his legacy
Baba Amte's two sons, Dr. Vikas Amte and Dr. Prakash Amte, and two daughters-in-law, Dr. Mandakini and Dr. Bharati, are all doctors. All four have dedicated their lives to social work and causes similar to those of the senior Amte.
Son Dr. Prakash Amte and his wife Dr. Mandakini Amte run a school and a hospital at Hemalkasa village in the underprivileged district of Gadchiroli in Maharashtra where people belonging to the "Madia Gond" tribe. After marrying Prakash Amte, Mandakini Amte left her governmental medical job and moved to Hemalkasa to eventually start a hospital, a school, and an orphanage for injured wild animals, including a lion and some leopards. Their two sons, Dr. Digant and Aniket have also dedicated their lives to the same causes as their parents.
Baba Amte's elder son Dr. Vikas Amte and his wife Dr. Bharati Amte run the hospital at Anandwan and co-ordinate operations between Anandwan and satellite projects.
Today, Anandwan and Hemalkasa village have one hospital, each. Anandwan has a university, an orphanage, and schools for the blind and the deaf. Currently, the self-sufficient Anandwan ashram has over 5,000 residents. The community development project at Anandwan in Maharashtra is recognised around the world. Besides Anandwan, Amte later founded "Somnath" and "Ashokwan" ashrams for treating leprosy patients.
