About the Book: Dare to Do! For The Next Generation
It is about a life truly 'lived and living'!
The real-life story of India's first and highest ranked woman officer in the Indian Police Service-who pioneered a Gandhian (inclusive and transparent) model of policing-marked by utmost devotion to duty, innovation, compassion and, above all, willpower!
Voted as India's most admired woman (The Week, 2002, and MSN, 2011) and most trusted woman (Reader's Digest, 2010), Kiran Bedi (nee Peshawaria) has won many accolades, including the prestigious Ramon Magsaysay Award, also considered the Nobel Prize of Asia, for forging a positive relationship between the police and the people.
Throughout her career, Kiran Bedi dared to remain creative to meet the challenges posed by her various assignments: be it policing, managing prisons or empowering communities through her two non-profit organizations. She won the admiration and respect of millions, both outside and within the country. But all along, she faced obstacles placed by powerful vested interests. She emerged stronger after each ordeal. She is a field person, who thinks on her feet and uses her heart magnanimously and her head judiciously.
After seeking voluntarily retirement from her service in December 2007, she dedicated herself totally to several people's causes, including the anti-corruption movement led by Anna Hazare. She hosted a much-acclaimed television show called Aap Ki Kachehri (Your Court), which helped individuals and families get a fair resolution to their problems and disputes.
Kiran Bedi is an author, columnist, a speaker and a radio show host. There is an internationally appreciated biopic on her life entitled Yes, Madam Sir. In this volume, she has added an exclusive chapter on the empowerment of women-an important issue today-to explain how, in several situations of their own making, even educated women disempower themselves.
This is a special edition, for the new generation, of Kiran Bedi's bestselling and longest running autobiography I Dare!
