She was the only woman in the batch of 80 men, who became the first woman IPS officer of the country at the age of 24. In one of her interviews upon asking what advice she would give to young aspirants she said, “This service gives us the power to serve. It gives you full career security to be courageous and fearless. It’s about building the nation and its future by serving the present. You must be there for those who need you the most. Hence, make sure you stay close to the ground.”
