Tu hein meri kiran!!!  

Posted by Divya A L

Enigmatic, brave,bold, courageous, confident, alluring, thoughtful, aggressive, ambitious, inspirational, intelligent, intellectual, independent, spiritual, energetic, simple, down to earth and finally the finest spokesperson I've ever come across.... Always full with energy and enthusiasm, she definitely deserves the position of India's highest ranked woman police officer and thats our very own Kiran Bedi!!!

She was the chief guest for the women's day celebrations at Intel yesterday. I listened to her gaping, open mouthed, without even winking my eyes totally engrossed! A woman of substance, grace, dignity and power! If being a police officer for over 30 years is one thing, I loved the child-like zeal and enthu in her. Speaks open heartedly, very honest in giving and taking comments and her love and dedication for this country is super supreme even in comparison with our super heroes who fought for freedom and independence!

She was to talk on the topic - "Leadership". And she did, did it very very effectively! Her mantra for being a successful leader was very simple - Responsibility, clearly set goals for life, never give up attitude, fear about nothing - after all, one may lose his/her life, which is sure to go anyway, do right things right, making early decisions that align with your goals! This was the summary of her 2 hrs talk which seemed like it had just begun.... Sharing her experiences as she talked made it more interesting and gripping.... She time and again stressed the importance of channeling our energy in a proper way which otherwise according to her will turn out to be hazardous. So animated she was when she spoke, I felt, she could have made it into movies too....

She is also heading a national anti corruption movement thats starting april 5th this year along with Anna hazare who is determined to go on a hunger strike for the lokpal bill to pass through!

Her opening note:



Her take on corruption and anti corruption - video. Thanks to my N8 for a pretty good coverage!

Overall, it was a much needed doze for me and the source of inspiration came so unexpectedly!
I salute you ma'am!!

This was followed by a lot of fun activities and I was happy to win in some of them! Got a special reward for solving the maze game in 12 sec! ;) What a relishing day it was!!!

We have a chance to express our solidarity to Anna Hazare, Kiran Bedi etc., in their fight against corruption, by joining them in their fast, starting on 5th April. (Not an indefinite one like Anna Hazare, but for a day or two at least).
