Empowering Women… As I See… by Kiran Bedi
"From the holy city of Amritsar, India, To the Mecca of International Peace, The United Nations… an inspiring journey of the first woman in the Indian Police Service! What a national revolution it would be if each one of us were to self-police! Policing is the Power to Correct, the Power to Prevent, and the Power to get things done. It is the most effective protector of human rights just as it could be its worst violator” – this was a part of my acceptance speech on receiving the Ramon Magsaysay Award in 1994. “Police services in India are getting tougher by the day. They can be made simpler and effective only if the paths of truth and nonviolence are followed. There is a desperate need to lead the services the right way – with vision and commitment. Unless the service wants to be led by Generals who have no army, leadership must come from within the service and be groomed down the line”. Kiran Bedi in her usual refreshingly candid style, shares wideranging issues which have angered, inspired, or fascinated her. Through her matter of fact style of writing, she draws her readers into situations that they may either not have access to or may tend to ignore. Indian Police Issues… As I See… is a persistent effort by the author to encourage greater awareness about various social the hope to invoke, provoke, and inspire readers to heightened levels of sensitivity, participation, and response.
