Amazing story of a woman who grew up in India and couldn't wait to leave. In one night, three men came to ask her to help their laboring wives. All three refused her father's help (he was a doctor), preferring to let their wives die than break religious taboos. And all three did die. Ida realized she could make a difference, and so she went to med school, then served in India for decades, helping the lepers, founding a teaching hospital, serving the people. Powerful.
