"He was shouting: "Give me (something) to eat!" - and I could not give him (anything), as I knew, he was a starvation case. Next morning, I started giving him rice, and as he lifted the rice to his mouth with both hands, he expired."

„We have a home for crippled and unwanted children, the parents often can't feed them. Often - because they are crippled, because they are blind, because they are diseased - they don't want them. Often we pick them up also with their own parents, who have to be taken to the Home for the Dying. In that home we bring the people from the streets, from the lanes, from the drains, from all over the city. They are unwanted, uncared (for), sick and dying."
