Keep going down the memory lane sir, something to learn for all of us
Down the memory lane, further thoughts on what being in IPS meant to me.....
Few memories are indelible and we never forget them no matter how much time has passed. One such picture that will always remain vivid in my memory is when I was selected for Indian Police Service (IPS). My uncle (father’s younger brother), who was also an IPS officer, always wanted to see me in civil services. He was very close to me and even given my name.
My parents were always supportive of me and in spite of financial hardship they ensured that we got best of education and gave us all that they could afford.
They were extremely happy that their son had done well and that his achievement will always give them respect in the society. They were also relieved that I got a secured job and could support them financially as my two younger brothers were still studying.
As mentioned, my uncle, who was an IPS officer, was my role model and I used to emulate him. During my service career, I learnt a lot from him and his colleagues. Some of the important things that I always kept in my mind and which they kept reiterating was that being in IPS was something, which provided an opportunity to serve common people, who come to us with their predicaments. Being a senior officer, one could also ensure that everyone working under your control was alive to their problems and worked for their good. I knew police had a bad image hence effort was to do everything to improve the perception of police in the eyes of public.
See you soon...
