LIFE HAS A WAY OF MAKING YOU THINK IT KNOW

WHAT IS BEST;

POWERFUL PEOPLE DICTATE LIFE’S MEASURE

THE WEAK MEASURE LIFE’S DICTATION

 

          This is how I introduce Kiran Bedi.

 

       Kiran Bedi and me were colleagues in I P S.

 

She was D C P Traffic Delhi while I was DCP Traffic Hyderabad in 1979.

 

 She was born on June 9, 1949 at Amritsar in Punjab.She did her schooling from the Sacred Heart Convent.

 

She received her Masters degree in Political Sciencefrom Punjab University, Chandigarh. She continued her studies, even when she was Indian Police force. In the year 1988, she obtained a degree in Law (LLB)from Delhi University

 

 She married Brij Bedi in 1972 the year she started her career in the Indian Police Service (IPS), and three years later, in 1975, they had daughter Saina

 

 She achieved crowning  glory in police profession leaving

indelible  impact in the police history of India. She is a shining symbol of Competence, Compassion, Courage, and Commitment.

 

Kiran Bedi is truly an icon of heroism. She was the first Indian woman to join the Indian Police Service in 1972 and took voluntary retirement as D G P in 2007.

 

 She is one of the most renowned police officers, who have put their whole hearted effort in serving the society. She is thepride of Indian police Service.


 She was the Director General of India's Bureau of
Police Research and Development. Earlier, she served as the Police Advisor in the United Nations peace keeping department.

 

 For her noteworthy performance, she was awarded with the UN medal.

 In the year 2005, she received the honorary degree of Doctor of Law. In the year 1993, the Department of Social Sciences the Indian Institute of Technology in New Delhi awarded her with a Ph.D. degree. Her topic of research was Drug Abuse and Domestic Violence.

 

 Kiran Bedi won all-India Ladies tennis championship Title.


All the way through her career, she has taken up a number of challenging assignments and acquired resound able name and fame.

 

 She served as the Traffic Deputy Commissioner of police of New Delhi, Deputy Inspector General of Police in theinsurgency prone area of Mizoram.

She has also been the Lieutenant Governor of
Chandigarh and Director General of NarcoticsControl Bureau.

 

 An interesting thing about Kiran Bedi is that, sometimes, she is referred to as Crane Bedi. The reason behind calling her by this name isthat, she dragged the car of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi due to violation of parking rules. See her guts and coscientious discharge of  duty.


During her tenure as the Inspector General of Tihar Jail, she brought about several reforms in the way the prisons are managed. She brought forth a number of measures like yoga, meditation, redressal of complaints made by the prisoners etc.

 

 Kiran Bedi laid the foundation for the establishment of two voluntary organizations, namely, Navajyoti (1988) & India Vision Foundation (1994).

 

 These organizations were primarily set up with the aim of improving the living conditions of the drugaddicts and the underprivileged people. The effort of Kiran Bedi has paid and brought her worldwide recognition.

 

 Her works have always earned appreciation. For drug abuse prevention, her organization was presented with the Serge Soitiroff Memorial Award by United Nations.

 

For her outstanding work, Kiran Bedi was decorated with prestigious awards of National and International recognition.

 

  • President's Gallantry Award (1979)
  • Women of the Year Award (1980)
  • Asia Region Award for Drug Prevention and Control (1991)
  • Magsaysay Award for Government Service (1994)
  • Mahila Shiromani Award (1995)

  • Joseph Beuys Award (1997)
  • Pride of India (1999)
  • Mother Teresa Memorial National Award for
  • Social Justice (2005)
  •  
  •   AS A SOCIAL ACTIVIST;
  •  Kiran Bedi is one of the important social activist  in the crusde against malaise of corruption along with Anna Hazare and Shanti Bhusan famous jurist. She was detained alongside veteran social activist Anna Hazare and Shashi Bhushan on 16, August 2011.
  •  
  • Bedi, who is an active member of Hazare's crusade against corruption, told Times Now channel that she received formal release letters. She along with Anna Hazare and Shanti BHushan  have  been released.

Terming the detention cum arrest of Anna Hazare as undemocratic and unconstitutional, Kiran Bedi earlier in the day said that emergency has revisited the country.

"This is totally undemocratic and un -constitutional. This has not been done by Delhi Police; somebody elseis behind it. She said Delhi Police is capable enough to handle such peaceful protests".

 Kiran Bedi brought crowning glory to police profession of the countrty and became living example of rendering yeomen social service after retirement.

 .Let us pay for our tributes to this great  lady to  inspire  present generation and  for posterity to know. 

      GOOD NAME IN A MAN AND WOMAN

IS AN IMMACULATE JEWE OF THEIR NOBLE SOUL

Dear Uncle,

I am a great admirer of this Lady ! I feel people like her will never get enough justice  just because they are far ahead from the mainstream ! Their potential is far higher, and they are the visionaries, their ambition is not waiting for the complements and pattings but reaching their desired goals !

For her there will be enough work to be done till her last breath !

Here is a YOU tube video which shows her level of energy and determination !

I have read her personal letter to you in your Memoirs "As I look back "
