Dare to Do! for the New Generation by Kiran BediAbout the Book: Dare to Do! For The Next Generation It is about a life truly lived and living! The real-life story of Indias 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 Indias most admired woman (The Week, 2002, and MSN, 2011) and most trusted woman (Readers 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 peoples 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 Bedis bestselli

It was during the Asian Games held in Delhi in November that the Kiran Bedi phenomenon first surfaced in an India media on the cusp of proliferation. Posted in Delhi as DCP Traffic, Bedi was asked to manage the traffic as well as the petty corruption that plagued the department. Other measures included spot fines and presenting the likes of the controversial Swami Dhirendra Brahmachari considered close to Indira Gandhi, with parking tickets. That this unlikely figure had wormed its way out of an aggressively patriarchal North Indian society added to its powerful if slightly perverse appeal. As the recent horrific rapes show, this is after all a deeply misogynistic society where the girl child is often wished out of existence and to be a woman is to be humiliated in abominable ways.
