The best introduction about Kiran Bedi is the first female IPS officer of India. She is also a social activist who actively participated in Anna Hazare movement with Arvind Kejriwal, a former Magsaysay Award winner like her and an author, among others.

After completing her education from Amritsar, Kiran Bedi came Delhi and joined Khalsa College as a lecturer in 1971. She was also a very good Tennis player. She used to visit court daily to play Tennis. Brij Bedi was a regular visitor of the same Tennis court. They became friend. The common love between Kiran and Brij was Tennis. Brij was ten years older than Kiran, and hence initially they remained only friend. However, in a turn of events, Brij’s engagement was broken. He was frustrated and at that time it was Kiran who had given her emotional support. This incident brought them even closer.
Kiran Bedi was determined to become an IAS officer and Brij supporter her in this endeavor. There was love, and both of them decided to get married in the same year.
After marriage, Kiran was selected for UPSC Civil Services. However, she realized that because of little bit low rank, she isn’t going to get IAS and IFS. She was allotted her third option. Her parents were against this as no women in the history of India had joined IPS before. Kiran was also not in the mood of joining IPS and was thinking about selecting her next option – IRS. But, Brij persuaded her to go little bit extra and join IPS.
Yes, it was Brij who convinced Kiran Bedi to become the first female IPS Officer of India.
Unfortunately, this lovely couple decided to get separated after around ten years of marriage. They have one daughter named Saina Bharucha. For the sake of their daughter, both of them decided to not divorce and remain single. According to Brij, Kiran’s parents were responsible for this separation.
Brij Bedi is currently staying in Amritsar and following his hobby – Photography.
Saina Bharucha married Ruzbeh and currently located in Pune.
This is quite a paradox that the women who had solved many cases, including personal cases couldn’t handle her own personal life.
