Sharing her views on the occasion, IPS Renuka Mishra said that she has vivid memories of coming to book fairs and spending time book surfing and reading. She said in her formative years she would often find peace in reading Noddy Comics which eventually led her to more mature literature. She said living in a disciplined family it was always stressed on leading a more informed life with good knowledge and positive reading habits.
She said that as a part of the law and order establishment, it is heartening to know that such award ceremonies acknowledge the stellar role that the medical professionals play. She said those in the medical profession and the police are often misunderstood. She said such events play an important role in bridging that gap.
IPS Renuka Mishra said there is a concept of bystanders in police jargon. She added that when you find someone in distress you must play the role of an angel and help. She also called for greater care to not be a party to misogyny. She said that when lewd remarks are made in whatsApp groups and you continue to stay in the group you are resorting to abetment. She said what is needed instead is to revolt and shut down such commentary at the earliest.
She thanked The Lucknow Tribune for organizing an event well and bringing out achievers who quietly serve humanity.
