Kiran Bedi visits GIM

Ms. Kiran Bedi is the humane and fearless icon who has come to be the most revered & idolized lady in the Indian Police Services. Ms. Kiran Bedi, who is currently serving as the Director General at the Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPR&D;), has recently been awarded the Suryadutta award early this month. This visionary, with her holistic view on betterment of the country set up ‘Navjyoti’ and ‘India Vision Foundation’ a few years back showcasing her ever active involvement in community services. Apart from being the first woman IPS officer and the recipient of innumerable awards like the Ramon Magsaysay Award and the FICCI award, Ms. Bedi has been a path breaker in prison reforms, community policing, crime prevention strategies, drug abuse treatment, spirituality in police training and schooling of street children.

She felt one should make the right decisions without fearing consequences. After playing her interview to “Hard Talk” on BBC, she stressed on the importance of planning one’s career, self-introspection and always being aware of where one is headed. Further she said, one should constantly update and upgrade oneself with personal and professional training.
