˙Writing this book came into my mind when I was selected under a special scholarship programme to represent India as its cultural ambassador to japan in 2009. And this was the time when my association with Dr. Kiran Bedi began and i became her 'Dear Student'. The very purpose of connecting with Dr. Bedi was because i wanted to place forward an example in the front of japanese people that how an indian woman can emerge out to be one the most dedicated and phenomenal change agents in the country. Since i was representing India, and indian culture, i felt the need of sharing something about Dr. Kiran Bedi, who had been my guide & inspiration. This book is all about my experience and reminiscences with Dr. Bedi and how with her blessings˙ she inspired me to address a huge gathering of 1500 people at the famous Olympic Stadium in Tokyo, comprising students and teachers from 7 Asian countries and included local japanese school /˙ university students, and delegated from the japanese embassy. There are leaders who show direction to the others, and there are followers who tread the path. When Kiran Bedi became the first indian lady IPS officer way back in 1972, getting on to the pedestal of success was a pipe dream for most indian women. Kiran Bedi's success story inspired many into believing that the fairer sex could achieve what they wanted only if they followed their dream with an iron wall.

This Book is a tribute to the legendary Dr. Kiran Bedi from her student who through her story, wants to inspire everyone, especially the youths of this country, that nothing is impossible if one's mission is undertaken with discipline and dedication.
