“One should always own one’s job,” said Ms. Kiran Bedi while delivering the concluding address of the 2nd year of ‘Ribandar Talks’. Elucidating the above statement, she recalled how she took a bold decision during her stint as SP, Traffic in Goa in 1983; she opened the Zuari Bridge to traffic without official sanction to ensure congestion-free movement for commuters.

Kiran Bedi

Ms. Kiran Bedi is the humane and fearless icon who has come to be the most revered and idolized lady in the Indian Police Services. Ms. Kiran Bedi, who is currently serving as the Director General at the Bureau of Police Research & Development (BPR&D), has recently been awarded the Suryadutta Award early this month. This visionary, with her holistic view on betterment of the country set up ‘Navjyoti’ and ‘India Vision Foundation’ a few years back showcasing her ever active involvement in community services.

Apart from being the first woman IPS officer and the recipient of innumerable awards like the Ramon Magsaysay Award and the FICCI Award, Ms. Bedi has been a path-breaker in prison reforms, community policing, crime prevention strategies, drug abuse treatment, spirituality in police training, and schooling of street children. She has come a long way from her well-known and talked about stint at the Tihar Jail to her recognition as the UN Civilian Police Advisor and Director General in Home Guard & Civil Defense.

She felt one should make the right decisions without fearing consequences. After playing her interview to ‘Hard Talk’ on BBC, she stressed on the importance of planning one’s career, self-introspection and always being aware of where one is headed. Further she said, one should constantly update and upgrade oneself with personal and professional training.

Ribandar Talks‘ is a series of lectures by eminent personalities initiated by the students of Goa Institute of Management. This has become an annual feature at GIM and is a platform for interaction between Industry and the Institute. It has helped in establishing a real time relationship between industry bigwigs and would be managers and entrepreneurs of tomorrow who would be leading the nation in its quest for sustainable development in all fields. This forum also helps the speakers to be exposed to questions from fresh minds of the student community, opening them to the diverse perspectives.

The list of the eminent personalities who addressed the students of GIM and the range of areas covered is impressive. On the one hand is Mr. J. P. Singh, Chief Secretary of Goa, who spoke about the ‘History of Steel Industry in India’, and on the other is Mr. Cajetan Vaz, National Creative Director, Everest Brand Solutions, who spoke about ‘Changes in Conventional Mass Communication Channels’.

Some of the other keynote speakers were Mr. Sandeep Dasgupta, CEO, Deutche MF, who gave a brief overview of the Indian Financial Sector. Mr. Amitabh Chaturvedi, Group President, Reliance Capital, who spoke on ‘Mergers and Acquisitions in the Indian Economy’, Mr. Proshanto Banerjee, Ex-CMD, GAIL, who described the ‘Evolution of Oil and Gas Industry Since Independence’, and Mr. Jatinder (Jeet) N.
