SISTER NIVEDITA

"When The Call Comes"

Samuel’s work was toilsome but his income meager. Even out of his slender means he gave away his utmost to the less fortunate among his flock. Overwork and care undermined his health. Samuel was just thirty-four when death claimed his precious life. At the last moment he called his devoted wife and whispered in her ears, "When the call comes from Heaven, let Margaret go. The little one will reveal her talents and do great things."

Soon after her husband’s death Mary went with her children to her parental home in Ireland. Her old parents gave all their affection to their orphan grandchildren yet brought them up under strict discipline.

Some years passed. The grand parents sent Margaret and her sister to the Halifax Colette, where the two girls were resident  boarders of the college hostel. Discipline was the watchword of the place. Life there was all discipline - rigid, severe discipline. But the sisters loved their studies. Margaret grew fond of music and art. She took keen interest in biology.
