Dare to Do! For the New Generation

Kiran Bedi (Author)

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!

In Dare to Do! For the New Generation, Kiran Bedi enthuses, motivates and inspires today’s youngsters to clearly chalk out and achieve their goals and objectives without fear and without being overwhelmed by circumstances, however adverse they may be. She emphasizes the fact that qualities such as honesty, dedication, diligence and commitment to one’s profession are vital if one wants to succeed in life. She also drives home the point that there are no short cuts to success. Her own track record (as highlighted in this book) provides various examples of how she converted challenges into opportunities and how she refused to buckle under pressure from some of the most influential people in the corridors of power.

For instance:

When she was in charge of traffic in Delhi in the early 1980s, she forcefully defended her colleague who towed away Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s car for wrong parking and was facing flak from the top brass.

When, in 1986, members of the legal profession in Delhi and elsewhere demanded that she be dismissed for, again, backing her colleague for doing his duty sincerely (he had arrested and handcuffed a lawyer suspected of theft), she fought back with grit and determination to clear her name and maintain her credibility.

When she was ‘dumped’ in Tihar Jail (in New Delhi) in May 1993, she transformed this virtual hellhole into an ashram, where the inmates discovered new and meaningful ways of leading their lives by giving up their erstwhile criminal activities. She also set up an institution to take care of the prisoners’ families. She has led from the front all along and has faced all obstacles head-on.

In this volume, she has added a highly relevant chapter on the empowerment of women to explain how, in several situations of their own making, even educated women dis-empower themselves. This is a special and exclusive edition, for the new generation, of Kiran Bedi’s bestselling and long running autobiography I Dare!
