Sankar Sen (Author)
Synopsis The book contains 20 essays written by distinguished law-enforcement officers regarding some of their challenging and unique experiences in the field and their underlying lessons and warnings. The bunch of essays also provides revealing insights into the ambience in which the police work in India and the problems challenges, conflicting pulls and pressures that buffet conscientious officers in the field. Their triumphs and tragedies, agonies and ecstasies are woven in the pages of the book. There is also the message that in police work courage, honour, fair play and unwavering commitment to right means always help officers weather storms. Professional success comes by treading a narrow straight path and not by taking recourse to shortcut questionable means.
